NextGen Ministries

First Baptist Church’s NextGen Ministry is a spiritual discipleship plan for your children from the cradle to college. Our ministries have a commitment to partner closely with you in raising our next generation of Christian leaders. We have developed a strategy to help your child mature into the Christian young adult God intends. Would you allow us to partner with you as we shape the hearts and minds of our next generation, your kids?

NextGen Goal

The goal of  our NextGen ministry is to partner with parents to spiritually train and equip children through high school to become individuals who…

adore Christ and can articulate basic doctrine.
develop a biblical world view and a passion for Christian community.
explore their unique design for service and embrace the Great Commission.

NextGen Strategy

1. Teaching Goals

Within each age group ministry, a teaching plan has been developed that includes three C’s:


2. Ministry Transitions

As our children move from one age group ministry to the next, we want to make these transitions as seamless as possible by preparing children and their parents. This includes Physical Transitions from one ministry area to the next as well as Life Transitions as the child matures physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

3. Parent Equipping
