We love to laugh, we love to pray. We like to barbecue and drink good beer. We are individuals who recognize that we are no more loved by God than the stranger riding next to us on the subway.
We are musicians, doctors, grad students, accountants, waiters, attorneys and some of us are still deciding. We enjoy a good debate and learning something new. We rent movies and don’t watch them, because we’d rather talk to each other.
We are NEXT Ministries.
We and our friends include Jews and agnostics, gays and lesbians, Republicans and Democrats, activists and pacifists. Distinctions between secular and sacred aren’t so clear to us. We take our faith seriously, but ourselves lightly. We want to know how you’re doing – really.
We believe where someone is from is less about geography and more about life experience. We are followers; we are servant leaders. We are diverse, curious, adventurous and centered in faith. We are imperfect seekers of the truth. We are faulty followers of Christ. We strive to meet others wherever they are, and provide comfort and support for the NEXT step on this journey of life and faith.
