Innovative Projects and Leaders

NEXT Ventures identifies and provides small encourage capital grants in exchange for a front row seat to innovative projects that are helping shape the future of the church. These projects are practical, actionable approaches that historians will one day conclude were critical to the success of the post-COVID church in the U.S. We’re not looking for academic solutions. We have found and continue to seek to find, equip, and platform innovative, practitioner leaders who are in the trenches making a difference!

Over the past three years, Next Ventures has invested nearly $750,000 in 50+ innovative ministry projects and 15+ networks. We have hosted five Shark Tank events, with more to come. Finally, in 2025, we plan to invite our entire portfolio of ministries along with our Venture Partners for the first-ever Church Innovation Trade Show, a premier gathering for innovation and the future of the church.
