Our Mission

Our core mission is dedicated to serving the youth and children of Indiana. We achieve this by focusing on three key areas of leadership development.


Identify and Train

Identifying and training leaders involves embracing a model approach that goes beyond just recognition but dives into the discovery and nurturing of emerging leaders. We want to emphasize the growth of leadership by fostering community among NextGen leaders. 

Care and Coaching

Caring and coaching leaders involve embodying the role of mentors, offering compassionate guidance and unwavering support. This relationship facilitates personal and professional growth, fostering a resilient and empowered cadre of leaders prepared to navigate challenges with confidence and integrity.

Multiply and Mobilize

Multiplying and mobilizing leaders involves motivating them to extend their influence and fervently engage in their communities.  This empowering approach aims to cultivate a network of leaders dedicated to embodying Christian principles and positively impacting the world for Christ.


Each of these pillars is crucial in shaping the next generation of leaders within Indiana.
