Next Wave: 6th - 12th Grade

Next Wave is our student ministry for students in 6th-12th grade. We meet throughout each month to help students grow in their faith with Crews and combined fun events. On Sunday mornings, we want our students to serve in strategic areas, like Love Kids, Facilities, Guest Experience, and Tech. Next Wave also offers regular retreats and serving opportunities to help students grow in their relationship with God and each other.


Currently, in keeping with quarantine protocols, we meet throughout the week via Zoom to help students grow in their relationship with God and develop friendships. 

Next Wave also offers fun and meaningful content via Instagram and other platforms, providing ways for students to stay connected digitally.
