nextgen volunteer information

Thank you so much for your interest in serving with us! We believe watching kids and teens grow in their faith is one of the most exciting things on the planet and we’re so grateful you might want to be a part of that!

Joining the NextGen team takes a small investment of time to ensure that together we:

  • Are diligent in providing a safe environment for all our kids & teens
  • Discover just the right area of NextGen for you to serve in
  • Get you prepared to start this awesome adventure with us


STEP 1- Application: Please take a few minutes to fill out the Volunteer application. You will be asked to provide two character references of people who are not related to you that we can contact.

STEP 2 -Fingerprinting: Every volunteer working with minors at New Life Petaluma must be Live

Scanned (fingerprinted). Click HERE for the fingerprint instructions.

STEP 3- Interview: A team member will meet with you for a quick interview so that we can get to know

each other a little better and can answer any questions you might have. This is also a great time to talk

about different opportunities that are available and where your gifts/personality might best match up.

STEP 4- Training: We believe success in working with NextGen starts with being prepared. We want

to give you all of the tools and training you need to hit the ground running. We will also pair you up with a

ministry partner so that you get continued support (and because volunteering is just more fun when we

do it together).

Thank you again for your interest in joining NextGen at New Life! We feel honored that you might want to partner with us in pointing kids and families towards Jesus. If you have questions before you start this process, please feel free to reach out anytime. We would love to chat with you more about specific opportunities, requirements and how you could fit in with our team.
