NEXT Updates

Why 'NEXT'?

Plain and simple. It's about Jesus.

We want to connect people to Jesus. When people connect to Jesus, their lives are transformed, debts are paid, wounds are healed, relationships restored, forgiveness is received and given. We know that God alone does this saving work, but for some strange reason, God decides to respond to our faith and expectancy. Like the story of the woman with the empty jars in 2 Kings 4:1-6, as long as we present God with our empty jars, emptying ourselves and expecting Him to fill us, He will continue doing what only He can do, filling us with His Spirit, changing lives, drawing unbelievers, and transforming our towns! We don’t want to miss out on what only God can do by settling for what only we can do. So we feel it is right to continue to pioneer and risk through the giving of money so that more lives can be changed.

What is 'NEXT'?

'NEXT' is an initiative to raise resources for the following.

More + Better Facilities

Convenient, visible, clean and attractive facilities are an important tool to reach our communities with the gospel. Modern, inviting buildings help us extend the gospel and are worthy of our investment.

More + Better Locations

Our vision is to plant biblically based, grace-focused and spirit-filled churches throughout the St. Louis area and beyond. Having requisite start-up costs raised enables us to respond quickly to new opportunities. Each new location incurs about $100,000 in start up costs.

More + Better Ministry to Children and Youth

To serve our children and youth well means creating environments in our facilities where our youth and children can thrive and volunteers can be inspired. Over the next 10 years, our greatest evangelistic opportunities will be among our youth and through our youth.

More + Better Ministry to the Marginalized

God has called us to care for those who are under served and marginalized. We have made a commitment to be this kind of church; but want to provide more care, and want to do it better. Our desire is to launch an Adoption Fund to help Jubilee families rescue the fatherless and orphaned.
