Step By Step Home for Children with Special Needs

This is the primary function operating under the umbrella of Step By Step Worldwide Ministries (SBSWM).
Our defined purpose is to rescue abandoned Children with Special Needs, working in partnership with the Ghana Department of Social Welfare (DSW). This home is where our Three-Fold Purpose, "A Home - A Hope - A Future" is being implemented and applied to the lives of our children. In conjunction with this primary purpose, we are committed to propagating the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. Please see our projects for more detail.
We are primarily located in the Ashanti Region, where we are establishing our International Home Base.

To provide " A Home - A Hope - A Future" to those with Special Needs -
As of 2020, we are in the development stages of constructing a one-of-a-kind multi-acre Community for Children and Young Adults with Special Needs. The community plan will include multiple individual family homes, each with a live-in caregiver, and up to three children. We will have a fully stocked library, physical therapy center, recreation area, specialized school for the disabled, including an ASL centered school for the hearing impaired, and a life skills training center for older teens and young adults. We will have an onsite clinic for visiting medical staff, and a place of worship for our community's spiritual development. We will also have an outdoor setting for our Evangelism Movie Nights, which will be open for all residents and the neighboring towns and village communities. The SBSWM Community for Special Needs embraces our Three-Fold Purpose, "A Home - A Hope - A Future."

To Help Eliminate the Worldwide Water Crisis by Providing Clean Water to Those in Need -
This project is a commitment to drill deep "Bore Hole" wells for every community where we establish a branch of "Step By Step Worldwide Ministries." We are doing this to provide clean water to poor communities that have no access to public water sources. The need for clean water is at crisis levels in Africa, with many families forced to use contaminated water for cooking, drinking, and washing. This poses numerous health issues, that in many cases can lead to chronic illness and premature death. The Step By Step Living Water Initiative, is one facet of our ministry that provides in Spirit, Mind, and Body, a gift of life, fulfilling the words of Jesus in John 4:10, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."

To Do Our Part in Fulfilling the Great Commission Recorded in Mark 16:15 -
Step By Step Worldwide Ministries is committed to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ to the nations. As we establish our home base in Ghana, and in other areas we seek to establish branches, we will use an evening evangelism movie night, with each presentation shown in the translation of that area's local language [Jesus Film Project-1000 different languages ], to bring a visual understanding of the gospel. We will be working with local churches, enlisting area pastors, to preside over the event with an accompanying message. In the past, we have used this event to reach thousands for the kingdom of God, sometimes attracting thousands to a single showing.
