“If you love me, you will obey what I command.”

- Jesus (John 14:15, NET)


This weekly Bible study encourages participants to seek a deeper, more intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Next Step Bible Study is not a church or a substitute, nor is it affiliated with any specific denomination. We seek to provide another avenue for believers to grow and then to serve Christ wherever He directs, desiring to strengthen the church body by deepening the walks of individual believers.

We meet weekly on Monday nights in Richardson, TX. Additionally, there are a few “satellite” groups that do the study remotely. Each week, you prepare your lesson and then gather on Monday night to review it with your small group. After that, Mark Schupbach speaks on the lesson and provides additional insight from a unique perspective.

We share a number of aspects with other good Bible studies, but differ in the following ways:

  • We offer women’s small groups, men’s small groups, and co-ed small groups.
  • We host special “bonus” sessions with excellent outside teachers. Past guest teachers include: Tony Evans, June Hunt, Abe Kuruvilla, Larry Moyer, Rhome Dyck, and more!

You have expectations...and so do we! We assume you are a mature adult – serious about the study and will invest the time required (on average 1-3 hours of preparation / week). We also want you to follow the Next Step Method and be patient as the Holy Spirit works with you – you WILL be changed!

There is a $15 charge for the study workbook. Additionally, we provide Free Will Offering Baskets in the back of the room if anyone would like to help cover the costs of the facility, handouts, etc. So take your Next Step – contact us to learn more or register! Or ask us how you can host a satellite group in your area!
