Welcome To Next Generation Ministries

Our Mission

Next Generation Ministries at MCON exists to connect kids, teens, and families to Christ through a lifelong relationship with Christ and the Church.

Middletown Church of the Nazarene believes that children and youth are not only the church of tomorrow, but that they are the church of today! “Next Generation Ministries” at MCON provides meaningful programs and opportunities for age-appropriate fun and learning, Christ-centered relationships, and spiritual development for infants through high school students. Please contact any of our age-level ministry leaders for details regarding any of our specific ministries or contact the church office for general questions and to see how you might connect with what God is doing through MCON.

Our Ministry Model

We believe the church has the opportunity to impact the next generation for Jesus Christ.

We believe that the church is designed to partner with families, equipping parents as the spiritual leaders of their children.

We believe the church should foster an environment where individuals and families in all stages and of all ages encounter Jesus Christ and learn to be disciples of the Kingdom of God.
