Next Chapter

Helping high school graduates prepare for the next step...

Welcome to Next Chapter!

It is our desire to come alongside churches and help them prepare their 2020 high school graduates for their Next Chapter in life. This could be the workforce, military, college, or something else. This Next Chapter curriculum is designed to be taught in any size group. It can also be used in a variety of settings. There are three lessons aimed at giving students some foundational tools that will help them face the coming changes in their lives. This material is a team effort from several Oklahoma Baptist Collegiate Ministry leaders. 

These Next Chapter lessons contain three teaching videos. Each lesson also includes live teaching and discussion for your students to interact with. There is also some live teaching to be done by the leader (you). You will find that each lesson has a corresponding PowerPoint presentation. This presentation will contain the videos and other tools that are needed. There are also separate files for each video if this works better for your needs. On this site, you will also find student handout sheets for each lesson. The student sheets are designed to help your student track with you as you walk through the curriculum. We are honored that you would consider using the Next Chapter material with your grads.

If you have any questions or need any help please contact us!

About Us

NextChapter was developed by Oklahoma Baptist Collegiate Ministries as a response to seeing numerous students who were solid Christians in high school fail both morally and spiritually in the next chapter of their life. As college ministers, we spend a lot of effort bringing in students to our ministry who should already be here. This is time and effort that should be spent mobilizing students and reaching the lost.

We believe if we could aid churches in the transition out of high school, then we could spend more time impacting lostness on our campuses because your students will come to campus on mission. We don’t have all the answers, but we couldn’t just sit by and watch students leave the church. This is our attempt to help church homes make the most of the investments they have poured into students.
