• Children

    We join with families in making missionary disciples of children.

  • Students

    We are a movement of gospel transformation helping 6-12th grade students meet Jesus, learn to trust and follow him, and be sent out into their world as missionary disciples.

  • Special Needs

    Because people with special needs and their families need encouragement, purpose, and belonging, Arise special needs ministry steps in and helps by offering a wide range of opportunities so that they discover purpose and find belonging.

Get Connected

The next generation matters. And we’ve thought of you and your family. So we’ve designed some amazing environments for every age and phase, from birth to high school, and families with special needs. The NextGen team and incredible volunteers are committed to creating a culture that disciples the next generation to become lifelong passionate followers of Jesus. In all our ministries, we have the same desire: to help kids, students, and families meet Jesus, learn to trust and follow him, and to be sent out to bless the world.

Serve with us

Did you know that more than 80% of Christ followers make the decision to follow Jesus between the ages of 4-14? Heaven is full of people who took that big first step of faith as kids and teenagers. They are there because people like you decided to invest in a relationship with a child or teenager. Next Gen volunteers are just everyday people like you trying to live out their own faith and encourage the next generation in the process.
