Next Generation Ministry Team

To empower and connect next-gen leaders to lead lives and ministries that thrive

Next Generation Ministry is a broad term that includes any areas of ministry involving infants – young adults, including traditional categories like youth ministry, children’s ministry, and Christian education. The Next Generation Ministry Team hosts various events throughout the year designed to encourage and equip those called to work with the next generation.

  • We’ve sponsored combined services projects
  • We’ve sponsored a group to attend the Montreat College Conference
  • We’ve hosted quarterly lunches to share in fellowship.
  • We’ve hosted The Event,  a combined youth group gathering
  • We’ve hosted Better Than Average Training, a one-day training event for next-generation volunteers and staff.
