NEXT Conference

NEXT is an affordable and practical one-day training event designed to equip and encourage adult volunteers who work with youth and kids. It also provides content to help high school students discover their callings.

NEXT is a multi-locational event with plans to expand to two more cities 2018. While conferences are great, they aren’t always accessible because of location and cost. The goal of NEXT is to provide you with affordable, exceptional training so that anyone who wants to grow in ministry has opportunity to do so.


Who is Invited?

Any youth or children’s worker (full time, part time, or volunteer) and high school students

What to Expect

Throughout each conference, you will enjoy thought-provoking seminars led by relevant ministry speakers, along with table discussions, breakout sessions, prayer, communion, and fellowship. You will also be given an opportunity to meet with leaders who are available to answer your questions on a variety of topics. Most importantly, you will have opportunity to connect with other church leaders to share local and global outreach challenges, strategies, and success stories. You will be encouraged to learn how God is working through Alliance churches just like yours.


Each event is unique based on the region, but the schedule will typically remain the same from venue to venue.

Former NEXT participants report that they have developed strategic relationships with others working through similar challenges and seized fresh opportunities to grow in their leadership.

So when young people ask — “Why should I go to church? Who am I? What is my life all about? Why should I trust Jesus? Why should I avoid bad things? Why should I care about others? What good is prayer?” — we will be able to share with them the story of God’s restorative work on this earth … and they will be equipped to do the same.


I enjoyed all the sessions, keynotes, and worship. We drove 6 hours from Virginia for NEXT and a family vacation. NEXT was definitely the highlight of our trip.

I did not know what to expect but believe me, I came away with some valuable tools that will help me relate to and serve youth.

— Youth Worker

NEXT is a low maintenance, low-pressure conference with high impact! It is planned to give solid, practical content without the overwhelming list of choices.
