Next GEn | Children, MIddle School & High School
NextGen Ministry has its roots in the growing family ministry movement. It embraces a strategic church and parent partnership. This coordinated ministry plan, focused on the “next generation” (from cradle to college), seeks to align leaders, champion every age group, gauge effectiveness, expand learning, and engage parents.
NextGen Ministry at Hales Corners Lutheran Church exists to glorify God by raising up authentic Christ centered families who pass on vibrant faith in Jesus Christ to the next generation (Psalm 78:4-7). This is a strategic partnership between the church and home with the purpose of connecting parents and children with the truth of God’s Word, equipping parents to engage actively in the discipleship and spiritual formation of their children, and empowering people at every stage of life to make a difference in the world for Christ.
