Next Gen


Next Gen is the student ministry arm of the Alliance Northwest. It’s our goal to support and catalyze leaders of student ministries in churches across the region by connecting and supporting leaders, and by coordinating two large youth events. For more information on Next Gen, contact Kendra.

Reach & Quest are fun-packed retreats designed to draw students deeper into relationship with Jesus while also pouring into and catalyzing leaders as disciple-makers.

  • Reach:  A 3-day retreat for high school students over President’s Day weekend each year. Reach 2017 happened on Feb 17-20 in Central Oregon at Washington Family Ranch; you can listen to the speakers’ messages from Reach 2017 on our Podcasts page. 
  • Quest:  A 2-day retreat for middle school students held near Olympia, WA, every year in mid-October. Quest 2017 will be October 13-15, with promotional/registration materials available mid-summer.
