NEXT COORDINATOR
Stephanie Goggin is our NEXT Program Coordinator and works closely with our team of mobilizers in our desire to see all people engaged in God’s mission. Stephanie walks with interns in their journey to the mission field by guiding them through the fundraising process, training them for cross-cultural ministry, and ensuring the pre-internship process is as smooth as possible as we equip interns to confidently explore who they are in God’s mission.
NEXT DEVELOPER
Dina Horne is the NEXT Developer and leads Site Leaders to ensure a stellar experience for everyone who participates in a NEXT Internship. She and her husband, Dave, lived in Vienna, Austria for 8 years where she led the establishment of a team reaching out to Muslim immigrants and refugees. Now living in West Michigan, Dina also connects with church and district leaders to champion NEXT as a pathway for the development of future Wesleyan Church leaders.
NEXT SITE LEADERSHIP TEAM
Our Site leaders are experienced long-term, cross-cultural workers who have a heart to see the next generation grow as globally minded disciples.  Each Site Leader lives on site and is involved in the local community in which interns live and serve. They will guide interns and be a mentor to them as they navigate language learning, engage culture, and learn to understand and share the Gospel in their new context.

GIVE TO A NEXT SCHOLARSHIP
Invest in building The Wesleyan Church’s Kingdom Force with a donation to the NEXT Scholarship Fund.

There are two categories of NEXT scholarships: one for US and Canadian citizens and the NEXT Everywhere to Everywhere Scholarship for non-US and non-Canadian citizens. Both promote cultural diversity and assist interns with financial need. The vision for the NEXT Scholarship Fund is to create a diverse learning community and invest in future leaders in The International Wesleyan Church.
