Building Faith that Lasts a Lifetime

At Westminster Chapel, we believe that parents are the biggest spiritual influence in every child’s life by far! The church’s job is to support and expand on that influence through a dynamic partnership with parents and families. The goal is to raise up the next generation to be more like Christ every year and in every phase of life.

This is why all of our NextGen ministries are relationally based through small groups, with an adult who deeply cares for each kid in their group. From Nursery through High School, there will always be adults who are there to invest their lives.

Because of this relational aspect, we work to make sure that every element of our NextGen ministry is ‘phase appropriate.’ For example, we don’t talk about scripture and Jesus in the same way in Preschool and High School! Each phase of your child’s life will feel a little different in the right ways, building layer on layer towards growth and maturity.

Our NextGen ministry includes:

  • Nursery
  • Preschool
  • Elementary (Kindergarten – 5th grade)
  • Middle School (6th – 8th grade)
  • High School (9th -12th grade)

Adam Hollingsworth

NextGen Minister

I’ve been at Westminster since Easter of 2020 and love getting to work with Next Generations Ministry! My life was radically changed by an encounter with God as I was coming into my freshman year of high school, and I know that so much of life can be changed in these formative years. I really love coming alongside parents, and introducing resources and other people so they can be even better than they already are.

My wife Megan and I have one weiner dog, and love any opportunity to try great, new food. Also, I can seriously nerd out about coffee and CrossFit. But perhaps my favorite thing is learning new random information. When I start a sentence with, “I hear on a podcast…,” you can rest assured that the next fact will be interesting, but also rather useless. Want to know how snake anti-venom is made? Want to hear about the most interesting chair? Probably not, but I’ll still share.


Martha Clay

Children’s Ministry Director

I love introducing children to the Gospel Story of the Bible and helping them become lifelong disciples of Jesus. I love the humor, the hugs, and the honesty of children.  I grew up at Westminster and found it a great place to learn and develop my faith and gifts.  My hope is that elementary children will feel that Westminster is their church where they can learn to love like Jesus and develop their gifts.

My husband Dan and I have 3 children who are all adults now.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, history, Paris tea, puzzles, and walks with my husband Dan.
