Nexwave Youth Ministry

Captivating young people with the truth of God


Releasing young people into their purpose in life by creating opportunities for them to know God personally


Seeing young people released into...

Nexwave's vision is to see this generation captivated by the truth of Jesus Christ. We believe there is incredible potential in this generation, and we aim to harness this potential by helping them know their value and experience Jesus for themselves. Through being equipped in knowing their identity in Jesus, they can then go out and make God known within their schools, workplaces, and communities, which will bring lasting change to Western Australia and the world. We do this in a variety of ways, through high school seminars, camps, short-term outreaches, youth groups, and more.

What we do

Going to where the young people are and showing them who Jesus is

Before & After School Programs

For students who come to school early, breakfast club is an opportunity to grab a bite to eat, relax, play some board games, or get to know other students. We help facilitate this by cooking breakfast and running board games.
For active students who enjoy sports, after school programs such as soccer provide a safe environment for them to come together with both old and new friends and enjoy casual, recreational sport.

Recess & Lunch Programs

Run during break times, recess and lunch programs give students a positive outlet for their energy and an opportunity to get to know others. Some of our programs include: Dodgeball tournaments, Minute-to-Win-It games, individual challenges and/or group activities.

Join with Local Youth Groups

All across Western Australia there are many youth groups working with youth across the state, so we work alongside them.
Offering teachings on evangelism and missions among others, we also bring in new faces and games to give youth leaders a break. Working with any and every denomination, we focus on what would serve the church best at that point in mobilising and encouraging the youth.

Winter Camp

Winter Camp runs during both weeks of the July school holidays. Each year, young people from all over WA come together for five days of fun and games, food, friends, inspirational and challenging messages, and life-changing encounters with God.
This year's theme is "Branded and Set Apart." Week 1 is July 2-6; Week 2 is July 9-13. Location: Forest Edge Recreational Camp. Ages: 12-18 years old. Cost: $250. For more information, or to register, please email [email protected]

Summer Camp

Before you know it, Summer Camp 2019 will be here! This time, the Summer Camp theme will be "Focus". During the Summer holidays, you are welcome to come for the 5 day camp of growing more in our relationship with God and learning how to share about Him with others. We will once again be having 2 week optional outreaches - one overseas and one in Western Australia. Locations are yet to be announced but may include a house build in a developing nation like 2018's outreach to Nepal. For more information, please email: [email protected]


NIKO is a Greek word that means "to conquer, overcome, get the victory". The NIKO camp is a 5-day camp that invites people to discover their unique style of leadership, grow in teamwork, and take initiative in serving. Through different activities, teams learn to trust God and trust one another. The camp is designed to help participants overcome challenges physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
