01 What is Step Into My Shoes?

Step Into My Shoes is a flexible, immersive experience and devotional for families and small groups. Each step helps families walk in the shoes of Ugandan family Pastor Tom, his wife Nancy and their children and then invites us to follow Jesus' footsteps—caring for children and for those in need. The experience invites us to choose one, practical way we as families can invest in children locally or globally, and to continue the journey by receiving prayer ideas and fun family ideas to live compassionately, together.


02 What Will It Do For My Family?

As Christian parents, one of our struggles is to help our kids understand just how much we have and how we can help others. Step Into My Shoes was created by families, for families, and offers joyful, hands-on learning activities to feel how others feel, and live as Jesus lived.

Testimonials View Stories
“I am so glad we got to participate in the Step Into My Shoes program. What a wonderful opportunity for our families. I like the idea of encouraging them to take a next step while they are still freshly impacted. I look forward to when this experience can be available to all Vineyard churches.”
— Becky Olmstead, Vineyard USA Kids Ministry National Task Force Director
“If our kids grow up to be people who are not duped by the western idea of success, but are content with just enough, in order to be generous with others, we'll be exceedingly proud.”
— Debbie Wichman, Kids Community Director, Vineyard Church of the Rockies
“The mutual goal of Willow Creek Association and Compassion is to create Jesus-centered disciples who pray—and live—‘God’s Kingdom come, His will be done.’ This goal is well served by SIMS. I urge you and your church to explore and use SIMS to see transformation in your congregation by inspiring people to follow in Jesus’ footsteps, and serve.”
— Steve Bell, Executive Vice President, Willow Creek Association
“SIMS helps us to see and feel both the beauty and the hurt of our world, and invites us to act in response. Many people saw SIMS at the CAFO 2014 Summit and now plan to use it as a very compelling, ready-to-use way to celebrate Orphan Sunday at their church.”
— Jedd Medefind, President, Chrisitan Alliance for Orphans (CAFO)
“It is one thing to hear about the lack of food or unclean drinking water. It was a different thing to experience it! It became very real when it was my children staring at a dirty jug of water and realizing that this was our only option to drink. As an American, it is easy to lose sight of what is meant by ‘basic needs.’ This experience brought that into focus and deeply impacted our families’ understanding of what it means to provide and advocate for other’s basic needs.”
— Julie Wright, Minister of Next Generation Outreach, Grace Church, Eden Prairie, MN
