19 Sep Episode 071: Structuring Age Groups Within NextGen With JC Thompson
In this episode, I talk with JC Thompson. JC has transitioned into three different roles over the past ten years at the same church. He shares what it was like going from leading a specific ministry to leading all of NextGen, and what those different roles looked like. We also talk about how his church structures age groups within NextGen, the reasoning behind those age brackets, and the pros and cons of their current structure.
