WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE CHURCH IN OUR SOCIETY TODAY?
In a time where there seems to be a world turned upside down, we are more in need of a beacon of hope than ever before. But one that is more than just symbolic; one that is a living, breathing, actively engaged element of God’s goodness, love, and power in our communities.
NEXT is the evolution of Concord to further build on that legacy as an agent of change for his will. The younger generations today will not choose Christ simply because he was the savior of their grandparents and the comfort of their mothers and fathers. There’s a pronounced skepticism and a dogged cynicism created by constant projections of society’s ills unlike we have ever had access to before.
They are desperate for answers, crying out for hope, and have increasingly turned to places other than the church to find them.
That’s why NEXT’s emphasis on building a foundation for the youth is one of the most compelling reasons to join this movement. With our investment today, we are planting seeds that will bloom in eternity for these young lives. We are setting hearts afire for Christ when the kindling is best quickened to His purpose. We are showing them with our time, our treasures, and our talent that their lives are worth more than the exponential sum of it all.
NEXT empowers our church body to go even further beyond the four walls and be the light in a dark world not simply by just declaring I’m a child of the King, but by empowering us with resources to know what that means, then sharing it with others. And through this radiating song of glory, enrapture the spaces and places where we live, connecting the next person with their next step in knowing our Jesus.
Join our family! Let’s usher in this new age at Concord... together.
