Growth has been experienced in every church where he has been privileged to pastor. The Reagan's have a total of twenty-eight years Pastoral experience.

To this point, the Reagan's have seen over 50,000 conversions, and helped plant two churches in Mexico, one in India, and two in the United States. His zeal is shared by Elaine, his wife since 1964, who accompanies him.

Ted & Beth West

In NextGen Student Ministries we believe that we are equipping the Next Generation of leaders, worshipers, missionaries, and praisers.  Alongside the family, our mission is to prepare and equip every high school student with the Word of God to serve not only in the future but now. 

At some point in all of our lives we have been spiritually thirsty with an unquenchable thirst – almost as if we were dry bones walking.  However, God sees potential in every everyone, and so do the NextGen leaders.  Our mission is to speak The Living Word into each teenager, to show love and compassion as Jesus himself did, and allow them to find and nurture the gifts that God has given them. In turn, we pray that hope, faith, and the breath of life will fill their bodies, so they may rise up as the great army they are called to be.

We want the broken, the rejected, the hurt and the lost.  We promise to love them, pray with them, and allow Jesus to work in them.  Teenagers  are at a very pivo“... and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up...A GREAT ARMY”

Ezekiel 37:10tal time in their lives. These years are being stolen from them, so our mission is to gain them back and allow them to discover who they truly are in Christ.

They pray that through this the sick are healed, the lost are found, chains are broken, and a fresh anointing would be poured out on all who seek it. 

 

Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” John 4:23-24 MSG
