Innovative Projects and Leaders

NEXT Ventures (formally Exponential Ventures) identifies and provides small “ENCOURAGEMENT CAPITAL GRANTS” in exchange for a front row seat to innovative projects that are helping shape the future of the church. These projects are PRACTICAL, ACTIONABLE APPROACHES that historians will one day conclude were critical to the success of the post-COVID church in the U.S. We’re not looking for academic solutions. We have found and continue to seek to find, equip, and platform INNOVATIVE, PRACTITIONER LEADERS who are in the trenches making a difference!
