Preparing Pastors for the Next Generation

Preparing Pastors for the Next Generation

What is NXTGEN?

NXTGEN exists to prepare men, local churches and presbyteries to proclaim the Gospel. This is done by empowering regional leaders to raise up the next generation of pastors.

Vision

We have for too long done the same thing but expected different results. When it comes to raising up the next generation of pastors, we update our academic preparation and seek better venues to train pastors via internships…all of which are good, but we need to rethink how that training might best be done.

NXTGEN Pastors desires something more…achieving pastoral longevity by an intentional process of equipping the next generation through a guided cohort model that mentors those in the program in the soft skills needed. This is accomplished by providing opportunities for:

  • forming lifelong pastoral relationship bonds
  • lived out in a safe community
  • while providing the tools to juggle the stress of ministry
  • and leveraging the benefits of a solid academic education
  • with the guidance of a seasoned pastor

To that end, NXTGEN provides pastoral development, health, and sustainability by empowering presbyteries to equip pastors, church planters, and ministry leaders for the next generation.
