NEXT Church seeks to embody faith in ways which bring about change and impact. We know shifts do not happen without bold intention and faithful leadership. This network of leaders is fertile soil for ideas to take root, leadership skills to grow, and collaborative conversations to shape the future of the Church.
Let us accompany you on your journey toward growth and transformation.
A COHORT FOR PASTORS IN DISCERNMENT
Join other colleagues who have been in ministry for 5+ years and are discerning a shift in their role, setting, or focus – from changing the type or location of ministry, shifting the leadership approach within their current context, to considering retirement. The Cohort begins Thursday, October 5. LEARN MORE AND REGISTER
A COHORT FOR RULING ELDERS
Ruling Elders are the heartbeat of their congregation and the most effective change-makers within it. Guided by our ordination vows, come join a group of Ruling Elders from across the denomination who are committed to dismantling racism, deepening their leadership skills for the work, and curious about how they might affect change from within a congregation. The Cohort begins Monday, October 2! LEARN MORE AND REGISTER
TOWN HALL MEETING THIS THURSDAY!
Join us for a Town Hall meeting this Thursday, September 28 @ 1:00pm EST (10:00am PST). The NEXT Church Vision Team and staff are excited to share what we’ve been discussing, hearing, and discerning over the past few months. We will also answer questions and receive feedback from participants. REGISTER FOR THE LINK
JOIN A ROUNDTABLE CONVERSATION
Roundtable Conversations are one hour bursts of generative discussion around a specific topic. Join church leaders from across the country to talk about the things shaping the church and faith today. New conversations are being added all the time. Next up – a conversation around the new Book of Order antiracism policy requirement, a discussion around changing staff models, and an on-going monthly conversation for People of Color.
