Applications Now Open for NextGen Leaders Academy

posted on September 21

Missouri NextGen Ministries seeks to support and equip Missouri’s NextGen leaders. One way we do that is through a new program called NextGen Leaders Academy. This six-month program teaches the basics of NextGen ministry, empowers leaders to do big, exciting things, and creates a network of support for leaders all across the state.

NextGen Leaders Academy looks like:

  • Six months of learning and community-building
  • Three in-person events: A kick-off retreat, learning day on mental health and final celebration
  • Zoom learning sessions with UMC presenters and field experts
  • Zoom cohort meetings following each learning session
  • Six follow-up cohort meetings following completion of NGLA
  • One required readings
  • One self-directed final project specific to your ministry setting
Applications for the 2024 cohort are now open and close on Nov. 9. Click here to complete the brief application.
