Life change starts small

and grows as much as you water it

Hey, I'm Jake! 

I'm your Akron NXTGEN Pastor.

One of the biggest passions in my life is being able to connect people of every generation with content that points them towards the person of Jesus. When I'm not working you would probably find me playing just about any sport you can think of. I enjoy being outside with friends, my family and my black lab, Cali! If you have a passion for photography, creating inspiring content or love being a role model to the next generation, then let's connect!

Hey, I'm Morgan!

I'm your Medina NXTGEN Pastor.

My heart is for young people to truly know and follow hard after Jesus! I love their energy and how they keep me feeling young! When I’m not hanging out with youth, I’m easily found with my children. My husband and I have been married 10+ years, we have 4 beautiful children that I homeschool, and a small little farm that all keep us busy! If you love to see young people come to Jesus and grow in their relationship with him, come connect with me.

A new kind of belonging

At NXTGEN we set aside all differences and focus on growth–getting better, stronger and leaning into the person God made us to be. Meeting regularly, in-person and outside of school gives us a chance to talk about important stuff. If you're looking for "your tribe," you'll find it here at NXTGEN. 

Rise Above

There’s alot of noise out there. And the only way to “hear the music” is tuning in to our spiritual needs as a human; trusting the process and who it is that God made you to be. So we challenge you to RISE ABOVE the familiar chaos and become the person you’re meant to be.

Loved & Connected

It’s wildly important to us that everyone feels like they’re part of our church family. Students at NxtGen should leave feeling positive, hopeful and filled with love from our faithful community every time they gather.

Challenged to Grow

With continued teaching outside of Sunday morning, students meet in small groups after a weekly message to get real about real stuff. NxtGen is an opportunity to talk it out, ask questions and be open to getting and growing better.

Others focused. Better Together.

When we grow together, we become 100% better than who we are alone. You're invited to join our community at any time. But in the case that's not soon, follow our instagram to stay current on our schedule and events. Hope to see you in-person soon!
