NextGen Director


Grades 7-12

Hello and welcome to the NextGen712 Student Ministry.

NextGen712 Student Ministry is on a dynamic mission to CONTACT 7-12 grade students so we can CONNECT them to this ministry in which they can COMMIT to grow, and ultimately, be COMMISSIONED to follow Christ. We have work to do. The data shows that more than half of the students who grow up in church leave the faith when they graduate from high school. Is this because of unbelieving professors in college, busy schedules that do not have room for God, freedom to do what you want, or a little bit of everything?

What is the solution? Authentic faith: a faith that becomes your own during your middle/high school years and continues to grow after you leave home. The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 1:18-19, “This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith.”

We strive to create environments where students can connect, become more like Jesus, and be equipped to radically transform their world for Him.

Please let me know how I may be of further assistance. Thanks for reading!

Solomon Asks For Wisdom

Solomon asked God for wisdom to rule his people.

June 11

King David chose his son Solomon to be king after him and told him to obey God’s laws. When God offered to give Solomon whatever he asked for, Solomon asked for understanding to rule his people. God granted his request, making Solomon wiser than anyone before or after him.
