Next Generation Leaders

is a three-year plan developed by Great Commission Partnerships to help ignite a committed group of high school students to become the next generation of mission leaders.

Each year North Carolina Baptist students will begin a missional journey that will involve:

  • Teaching from pastors, missionaries, and mission strategists
  • Interactive Web-based discussion and accountability groups
  • Hands-on mission involvement with church planters, urban strategists and missionaries serving in unreached and underserved areas of the nations

It is the hope of the Office of Great Commission Partnerships that through the Next Generation Missional Journey, God will raise up a new generation of mission leaders with an unwavering passion to reach the nations with the gospel.
