Walking a True Path

People don’t often become Christians in an instant. It’s a journey that takes steps. Learning to identify where people are in their spiritual journey is critical to inviting them to move toward Jesus. The Five Thresholds is a ministry framework that helps you engage with people at different points of their spiritual journey.
