Grace and  Peace!

Congratulations to your church and its newest High School Graduates!

The Next Gen Team celebrates with you the graduation of your congregation’s young people from High School into the world of young adulthood.

As they continue along in their journey of becoming Kingdom Focused Young Adults, our desire is to come alongside them and your congregation as they take these steps toward becoming young adults.

To that end, each year in conjunction with National College Decision Day – May 1 – we ask each of our partnering churches to complete the Next Gen NEXT STEPS Survey.  When you complete this survey, you help our state convention’s team of self-funded collegiate missionaries serving universities across PA and NJ to identify what our young people are planning to do as they finish high school in the following ways:

  1. You help our team identify what their plans are (enter the work force [entrepreneurial endeavors, military service, Peace Corps etc], undertake vo-tech training, enroll in 2/4 year colleges, etc) and which colleges they are planning to attend.
  2. You help our team specifically identify and commend faith communities and faith-based student organizations which can help them continue to grow in Christ on or near those academic institutions
  3. You help our team better serve the congregations of our BRN concerning the needs of the Next Gen in  PA/SJ as we continue to study Gen Z.

This year’s survey will conclude on June 30, 4:30 p.m.  If you have questions concerning the survey or would like to speak directly with someone concerning clarification on how to answer a specific aspect of the survey, please email
