Group Leader Information
Do you have a vision for seeing your student and adult leaders better capture God’s view of the world?
We want to help make that vision a reality.
NEXT Team missions are incredible opportunities for young men and women to be used by God in ways they never thought possible, and for them to see God in ways that they have never seen Him before. Unfortunately, many people today view missions the same way they view worship. Both are seen more in the context of what the church does as opposed to who the church is.
East-West NEXT Teams wants followers of Christ to understand that missions and worship go hand in hand. Neither one is to be treated like a faucet, which can be turned on and off for a period of time. Instead, our lives should be defined by worship, and that worship should lead to a life of active missional living. NEXT wants to equip students and young adults to “Live the Mission!”
At East-West NEXT Teams, we’ve brought together Church Planting Missions and Missional Leadership Training into one life-changing experience that will give you the tools, knowledge, and experience necessary to radically transform how you and the members of your group live your lives.
So instead of asking, “Should we go?” the real question is “Where and when should we go?” Join us in helping establish new churches all over the globe as you and your group discover how to Live the Mission God has for you!
You can expect our experienced mission staff to walk you through this entire process.
From the initial interest email, all the way through trip follow up, NEXT Teams coordinates and organizes every step of the process. Group leaders only have to focus on mobilizing their participants to sign up for the trip, and facilitating the provided pre-trip training. NEXT Teams takes it from there. While on the trip, we teach and train students in missional leadership skills, so that their experience doesn’t end with the trip, but becomes a way of life – Living the Mission.
Below is an outline of what you can expect from us, and a short list of what we expect from each group leader…
Coordinate all logistics (transportation, food, lodging, ministry sites, translators, etc.)
We work with nationals in Ecuador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Kenya, Romania, South Texas, Spain, and many more places. You can partner with NEXT Teams to take your students to share the gospel in one of these places.
