Arise my people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you.
Next Generation Arising was created by Mark Johnston to feed & equip young people, as Jesus commanded over 2000 years ago. The youth of this generation are searching for consistent, biblical precepts to face the challenges & ideology of today’s culture. If youth are taught in an engaging & age-appropriate way the basic doctrines of what they believe & why, then they will surely face each season of life with great security & confidence.
Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. Next Generation Arising consists of a variety of ministries designed to engage our youth & train them well. Consistent, weekly teaching that is Bible based will develop leaders who know who they are, why they are here & how to live out the purpose for which God created them. Spirit filled youth will be obedient to their Savior & armored daily to resist the pressure to conform to culture & blend in with the masses.
God called Abraham, Deborah, Moses, Peter & Queen Esther to stand up, stand out & lead. He also called Lincoln, Wilberforce, Clara Barton & Rosa Parks. In each generation, God has strategically placed his people to influence, shape & lead the next generation. As Mordecai said to his niece, Esther, "It was for such a time as this that you were born."
