I want to learn more about ExploreNext for Agencies!

History of ExploreNext

ExploreNext is the newest MissionNext ministry website developed from the Finishers website. The Finishers Project concept was launched by Nelson Malwitz in 1998.  Nelson founded the Finishers Project as a national ministry of Walnut Hill Community Church (WHCC) in Bethel, CT. The initial launch was in the form of Finishers Forums. Soon after a web presence was created as a connecting tool. Finishers Project then expanded into four websites, Finishers, MissionXplore, Mission:TEACH and BAMmatch all under the corporate umbrella of MissionNext.  In time this led to the creation of a completely new website for MissionNext with two ministry subsites ExploreNext and TeachNext.

The newly developed MissionNext website will allow for easier expansion and also expand the reach of the MissionNext movement internationally. Today, ExploreNext provides a web-based matching service that helps connect faith-based service organizations with candidates from all backgrounds, walks of life and skill sets. MissionNext draws qualified candidates to ExploreNext so agencies can fill positions in a broad variety of ministry categories.
