Our vision is to see youth

connected to Jesus and the local church

by creating environments where youth can build authentic relationships through their passions.​



We are Brayden and Abby Lans.

We started Half Step in 2016 in our home church in Fort Collins, CO after serving in a similar ministry in Central and Eastern Europe with Josiah Venture. After experiencing the impact of this ministry on students and leaders alike, we felt a growing burden to create a similar movement of God right where we were planted in Northern Colorado. We believe in and love the Local Church! Our heart is to create spaces in partnership with The Church that lead to even more people that were far from Jesus to experience His love. Coming to church might be out of the question for some people, our desire is that coming to Half Step might feel different. 

We are an official 501c3 Non Profit in Colorado since 2021 and a support based ministry. We raise support so that we can dedicate our time and resources towards building a healthy team and community, discipleship, and quality programming that makes serving with Half Step an impactful experience.
