What Is A Next Generation Learning Group?

The primary avenue in which we serve next generation leaders is through learning groups.  These groups foster relationally safe, trustworthy environments for emerging ministry leaders to process real life issues and challenges, and to receive real life, practical solutions intended to increase their effectiveness and overall health and vibrancy.

We are convinced that leaders suffer in isolation, but they heal and change in community.  Therefore, we help catalyze a community of peers who engage life and ministry at a deep level with each other.

In our groups, we dive deeply into one another’s lives, hold each other accountable, and pray for each other as we face a plethora of challenges together and strive to develop and grow through them. We also use proven resources and tools that cultivate and optimize learning, growth, and development.

  • With so many people counting on me and looking to my spiritual guidance, where can I share honestly about my own struggles, fears, & insecurities?
