Ministries & Missions

We support a variety of missions and ministries throughout Northern Virginia and beyond. Be sure to check out all of these important organizations!

Next Level Innovations

Next Level Innovations (NLI) is an investment in churches that have a recognized potential for reaching more people in their community and inviting them to become disciples of Jesus.  These churches have healthy and coachable leadership (clergy and lay).

Youth Ministry

While the NoVa District doesn’t have specific youth ministry programs or events, we do invest in youth professionals in our churches. We have cohorts of leaders and we help facilitate a district Confirmation retreat each Spring.

Neighborhood Seminary

Neighborhood Seminary is a two-year non-credit theological education program open to lay persons aged 18 to 108 who have a desire to engage God’s mission in the world.

Lay Servant Ministries

The purpose of the Lay Servant Ministry is to empower laity to serve the Lord in the church. Lay Servants focus on communicating the Scriptures and their faith, providing basic skills in caring for others, and serve their churches/charges in leadership roles.
