What We Do

Step Up To Life is a non-profit parachurch organization providing training and resources for Christians, Churches, Leaders, and Faith-Based Organizations to share the Gospel Message of Christ Jesus with greater clarity, confidence, and compassion. It was born out of a single message delivered by the founder of Step Up To Life, Elmer Murdoch, at Christian Missionary Alliance Emmanuel Church in Foxboro, MA back in 1957.  It was so well received, the message was preached several times and eventually converted into a booklet in 1971 for others to use/share.  Since that time, the booklet has been translated into 80 different languages and versions, with over 13 million handed out throughout the world, including tens of thousands in the Omaha Metro.

Step Up To Life has chapters across the world on 5 different continents (run by local "Champions") with their primary focus and headquarters being in Omaha, NE.  They partner with local churches and non profits to evangelize, encourage, develop, and support Omaha Metro residents through seminars, conferences, trainings, pastor development/mentoring, preaching and sharing the Gospel through the distribution of our Step Up To Life booklets.

For more specific details on the Churches and Non Profits that Step Up To Life partners with, please reference the pictures and media shared below.

All financial support is used to further the ministry.
