NextGen will offer 'Training Kits' in 2021 and will officially relaunch in 2022 in a new format that better serves and equips the next generation of Bible teachers. Sign up to our upcoming NextGen Info Night for more information!
For the last 30 years, NextGen conference has played an integral role in training and equipping leaders in youth and children’s ministry. Hosted by Katoomba Christian Convention, NextGen’s world-class training model has been exported both interstate and overseas, with leaders trained up in Queensland, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Uganda and the Solomon Islands.
Since 1990, tens of thousands of delegates have graduated from the NextGen program with a renewed love of God and the confidence to read and teach the Bible to others. Delegates have left NextGen to serve their local church as lay leaders, and some have completed the program with the conviction to enter full-time pastoral or Christian ministry.
"NextGen training fuelled my desire for God, his Word and to be further equipped to serve him better."
“God used NextGen to propel my life on track. Through the powerful preaching, I was convicted that Christ was worthy of my all. I remember after a night session...I prayed that God would help me resolve to live a single-minded, transformed life as Jesus deserves no less.
“Things which I take for granted now I was introduced to for the first time at NextGen. I really had no idea how to read the Bible properly and that was made clear to me at NextGen. I hadn’t even heard of biblical theology before. All this stuff I took back to Brisbane to try and implement into the Young Adults group.”
The need for a new NextGen format
While we are able to praise God for all that He has done through NextGen, we recognise that times have changed and that the old format posed some challenges which prevented groups from receiving the full benefits of the NextGen program.
Such challenges include:
