Next Gen Disciples are WORLD CHANGERS fueled by their relationship with Jesus Christ.

They are the church of today and tomorrow. They are children, youth and young adults.

They are in elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and home schools, colleges and universities, and they are out in the world serving in a multitude of roles.

Next Gen Disciples make decisions for their life through the lens of faith.

They see the church not only as a place to go to but something to BE.

They see the Word of God not only as something to read but to LIVE.

Next Gen Disciples are committed to offering Christ to a hurting world one person, one neighborhood at a time.

Who do you know that is a Next Gen Disciple?

Who will you reach out to so they can become a Next Gen Disciple?
