Who we are

mailbox missionaries

PROJECT: Steps to Christ is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Christian organization dedicated to giving every home in America the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ through the mass distribution of free Bible-based, Christian literature. Over the past 40 years, we have distributed free books to over 22 million homes across the United States, bringing hope, peace, comfort, and encouragement to thousands.

At PROJECT: Steps to Christ we believe the Holy Bible should be our source for truth. While there are many authors and religious organizations that have great insights and observations about truth, ultimately the Bible MUST be our guide! We have observed that denominational labels often influence our willingness to examine new ideas and resources. We have intentionally NOT provided a denominational affiliation in an effort to minimize pre-conceived ideas about the material provided.

Isaiah declared "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." (Isaiah 8:20 KJV) We endeavor to ensure ALL materials provided by us are Biblical. We invite you to examine any resource that we provide for its Biblical accuracy and bring to our attention any variations from scripture.

Our Mission

PROJECT: Steps to Christ, Inc. is a Christian ministry instituted and designed to provide the opportunity for every home in America to have the gospel message delivered to their door.


Our History

PROJECT: Steps to Christ, Inc. was founded in Illinois during the early 1970's by Jim and Connie Barclay. Jim was inspired with the idea to place a Steps to Christ in every home in America directly through the mail. In 1976 the project launched its first major campaign to reach all of Chicago. Under Jim's leadership churches in the greater Chicago area raised over $170,000 and mailed 1,000,000 books to Chicago and the surrounding area.

Since 1994, PROJECT: Steps to Christ, Inc. has been located in Fort Covington, NY. We have mailed out over 20,000,000 books since that humble beginning almost 40 years ago.
