Welcome to Next Gen Ministries!

Next Gen is an incredible place to find authentic community for middle school or high school students. Our vision: “We want to be a place to belong, where students, believing in God and trusting in his Word, are becoming passionate disciples of Jesus Christ.”

We offer many opportunities to help your teenager find a place to belong and to grow as a disciple. Below you will find information on our Life Groups, Youth Groups as well as upcoming events and retreats. You can also sign up to receive our weekly parent emails, learn about our Next Gen staff and see what is coming up in the months ahead on our calendar. 

Please contact our youth pastors, Jonny or Melissa by using the buttons below if you would like to learn more. 

At Next Gen, we want your teens to have fun, feel safe, and know that they are valued as part of our community. Our goal is to raise students to become disciples who make disciples: people who follow Jesus Christ, are being formed by Christ, and who seek to fulfill the mission of Christ (Matthew 28: 18-20). 

To this end, we have weekly Life Groups, monthly Youth Groups, events, and retreats going on throughout the year for both Middle School and High School. You can read more about those by clicking the link below. We hope your child will find Next Gen to be a place to belong!


Both our Middle School and High School Youth Groups meet monthly throughout the school year on Sundays at Holy Cross, Sullivan’s Island. Each Youth Group lasts two hours and includes: excellent Bible teaching, prayer, musical worship, fun activities, small group discussion, games and a pizza dinner. See calendar above for fall and spring dates. 

Middle School Youth Group - 5-7 pm

High School Youth Group - 6-8 pm


Middle School and High School Life Groups meet almost every week throughout the school year. During the summer we have The Noise and High School Summer Group. 

Life Groups are the perfect place for your child to build community and live out the Christian life together with their peers. The purpose of Life Groups is to care for each other and grow as disciples of Jesus.
