Every Sunday, our volunteers show up and work together in their unique roles to create an amazing environment for our kids.

Next Gen is volunteer-fueled and wouldn’t exist without their leadership and passion. Each team member has a role to play!

Small Group Leader (SGL)

Serves as the primary role model for the same group of 8-10 kids on a weekly (or bi-weekly) basis. We provide the curriculum and supplies, and the leaders guide their group into meaningful relationships with each other and Christ. SGL’s are needed for ages 3 through high school.


Provides leadership and support to a team of 6-8 small group leaders and oversees their area on Sunday.

Registration Team

This group welcomes children and families into the area and assists with the check-in process. We also use this team to guide new families through check-in and to each area they will need. 

Tech and Production Team

Ensures that large group time (Bible message, fun and worship time) runs without interruptions. The Tech Team is trained on the equipment in their area and is given curriculum to lift up the message through lights and sounds. The Production Team makes props, prepares or gathers equipment from our supplies, works with costumes, or works backstage or as stage hands to make large group time a memorable experience that brings home the message.  


It’s not all about the voice! Leading worship is using your gift of being on stage, choreography, scripts and the power of the Holy Spirit to bring kids into worshipful moments with an Amazing Savior. 


Some service roles are also needed during our special events and our Elementary School Outreach (Fusion Inside Out).
