At Annual Conference in June, missional leaders were identified as an essential priority for the Missouri United Methodist Conference. Missional leaders are intentionally growing in their faith and are able to identify others, who identify others, who practice following Christ. 

In order to identify and develop missional leaders, Next Generation Ministries has created the NextGen Academy, a series of events, to be a place for students to grow in their faith by exploring spiritual gifts, leadership development, and service and mission. We believe this environment will be a place for students to feel freed to discover where God is calling them in their community, local church and beyond.

Our first NextGen Academy event will be held September 22 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Missouri Annual Conference Office. Middle and high schoolers will complete CliftonStrengths assessments ahead of time so they can evaluate and discuss during the event how these strengths can be utilized in their daily life.
