Christ-Centered from the beginning.
NEXT Ministry Conference began in 2012 at Crown College in Minnesota as an innovative, affordable one-day training for youth and children’s workers, their lead teams, volunteers and key high school students. (The first conference was actually called “Spark,” but we’re still embarrassed to admit that!) Since then, NEXT has expanded across the U.S. to multiple regional locations and has trained thousands leaders who are intentional about equipping Jesus-followers in the next generations. While many things have changed from the beginning, one thing hasn't: NEXT Conference has and will always have a Christ-Centered approach in everything we do.
