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. This ministry, called Fusion, was created by Josiah Venture to bring high school aged students into a fun, loving community that shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them and finds its home in the local church. This ministry has been greatly successful at reaching the lost and discipling new young leaders in their faith. We experienced this impact and felt a growing burden to create a similar movement of God in the US; a country that is increasingly becoming more estranged and bitter towards Christ and His church.
