Our Next Generation Ministry has played an important role in developing leaders on the College and University campus.  WDA staff teams meet with resident students and involve them in ministry activities designed to help them grow to maturity in Christ. After graduation, we strive to stay connected through an alumni network, assisting them as they build disciples in their local churches.
