NEXT is a conference where those who shape the next generation can converge to be inspired, encouraged and equipped. This inaugural “NEXT” conference is a response to a call from leaders who desire to gather and hear from current and relevant “shapers.”
- Shaping: “To fashion, sculpt, carve, cut, whittle, develop, influence or DISCIPLE.”
- Shaper: “The term used to describe an artisan and the process applied to creating a work of art from raw materials.”
In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 28, Jesus said, “go and make disciples of all nations…” Essentially He was saying be a “shaper.”
To inspire, encourage and equip those who have a heart for the next generation by bringing together shapers from various spheres of culture. Some of those spheres are; Church, Business, Education, Family and Entertainment. These influential shapers will share their best practices from their unique perspective.
The environment for NEXT is being intentionally designed as a creative and innovative space allowing for times to connect and collaborate with fellow “shapers.” Each session will involve a time of musical worship, interviews, quick-talks, artistic expression and spiritual impartation.
I invite you to join me as I pray for each attendee to leave with more than information, more than inspiration… I want them to leave with revelation of God’s heart and call for children, youth and young adults of the next generation.
