About the Book

It All Starts Here is a thorough, funny, engaging, challenging, and biblical walk-through of what it means to follow Christ specifically designed for the new believer. No longer do youth pastors and church leaders need to leave the new believer with the “now what?” question still lingering in their mind after they’ve made that important decision. With this resource you can know that they are walking through the gospel message and basic Christian beliefs on a 31-day journey that will cover the kind of topics that would take months of sermons to cover.
