Create & Share Interactive Christian Journeys

NextSteps brought to you by Jesus Film Project. As a Christian Media Ministry we believe that every gospel content should come with the next step attached.

Three distinct styles for every age and audience: explainer, animated, classic Jesus film. Grab one or use all of them. Customize to make it your own and share. We also prepared a playbook to give you ideas on how you can use these journeys as part of your Easter outreach strategy.




Sharing christian content online is not enough.

You need to provide your audience with an appropriate NextStep. This is why we use branching inside every journey. With branching we can learn where people are in their spiritual journey and provide the best next step for them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?

A Platform to build interactive web experiences called Journeys.

Ever wish you could share your faith in a way that actually resonates with people? That’s where NextSteps comes in! Think of it as your personal faith journey builder, helping you create interactive experiences that draw people in and spark meaningful conversations.
Here’s the deal: you design custom journeys filled with relevant content, tailored to your specific audiences. And the best part? When they’re ready to chat, NextSteps connects them directly to you for real conversations that matter.

What is a Journey?

A Journey is an interactive story that sends users to different outcomes based on their interactions

Unlike linear social media stories, ours come with a branching feature that can send your seekers to different outcomes based on their answers and interactions. That allows you to focus your attention on people with high engagement and gives you insights into what people who never started a conversation with you think about content.

Imagine a choose-your-own-adventure book, but online and focused on faith exploration. As users navigate your journey, their decisions determine the path they take, leading them to different outcomes.

This innovative approach offers several benefits:

  • Focus on the most engaged: By seeing which paths users choose, you can identify those most interested in your message and prioritize connecting with them directly.
  • Gain valuable insights: Even those who don’t chat still reveal valuable information through their choices. This data helps you understand their interests and tailor future content to resonate better.

NextSteps Journeys go beyond passive viewing, creating an engaging and personalized experience that fosters deeper connection and valuable insights.

But we already use ads and messenger

Ads only produce 1% conversion rate and tell you nothing about the lost 99%

Hey, you’re already using ads and messenger to spread the word. But here’s the thing: ads only get you a measly 1% conversion rate, and that leaves you in the dark about the other 99%.

NextSteps Journeys are different. It gives you the full picture, including the folks who aren’t quite ready to chat yet. Plus, it gives them other ways to explore their faith without feeling pressured. And let’s be honest, it weeds out those trolls who just want to argue. It’s a win-win!

How it works?

Next Steps journeys are web links that you can share with any audience online. They can be shared on platforms such as Facebook Ads, Chat Groups, websites or QR codes. When someone clicks on the link, they will be directed to a story that looks like a social media app. Users will feel familiar with the interface and know how to progress through the story. Each story can have various outcomes depending on the actions the person takes at each step. People who are interested in your message will start a conversation. Abusers and rude people can be sent to a branch without a chat option. Those who show interest but are reserved will be provided with an option to explore more.
