is the global summit brand of the 4/14 Window Movement. This movement exists to unite individuals and organizations who are working to reach children and youth with the message of the Gospel.
Research shows that the ages between 4 and 14 are critical years when many make a faith decision for Christ. Children are a powerful missions force affecting change in our world today, and we believe they represent the potential to transform the world!
NEXT is the official 2018 Global Summit of the 4/14 Window Movement. At this future-facing event, you will be inspired, informed, and equipped as we explore how the Church can fulfill its God-given mandate to tell of His mighty acts to the next generation. This will be our 5th Global Summit where we will have the chance to connect with each other and explore the vision for what is ahead.
We anticipate that nearly 1,400 people will attend the event. At NEXT, you will connect with others who share your vision to see the Church reach children for Christ. You will meet senior pastors, children’s ministry practitioners, denominational leaders, non-profit workers, Sunday School teachers, innovators, influencers, and others from at least 90 countries!
At NEXT, you will have the opportunity to learn from a variety of speakers sharing their expertise and experiences in ministry. The schedule is structured so that you can hear from as many dynamic speakers as possible over the course of our three days together. Topics will include technology, church planting, adolescent empowerment, community impact, advocacy, children’s ministry, and more. You can see the daily schedule here.
The 4/14 Window Movement exists to unite individuals and organizations who are working to reach, rescue, root, and release young people into God’s Kingdom. We believe that children represent the potential to transform the world and are an important part of our harvest for Jesus Christ. Read about the major milestones of the movement.
There are two different pricing options for the Summit: the NEXT Silver package for S$500 (SGD), or the NEXT Red rate of S$100. Regardless of which option you choose, please note that all participants are responsible for their travel expenses to Singapore. What is the difference between the two rates?
This all-inclusive package provides Summit admission, 4 nights hotel stay, and all meals during event days. It also covers ground transportation to and from the Singapore Changi Airport, as well as daily transportation from your hotel to the Summit venue. NEXT Silver is recommended for international travelers, as nothing will be left to chance. Once you arrive in the country, we will take care of the rest!
NEXT Red provides access to all sessions of the Summit, as well as lunch and tea breaks on event days. It does not include lodging, ground transportation, breakfast, or dinner. This rate is recommended for local participants, as well as those who plan to make their own lodging arrangements in Singapore.
A limited number of scholarships are available for those who need financial assistance to be able to attend the Summit. Scholarships apply to food and lodging only. If you receive a scholarship, it will discount the cost of the NEXT Silver package (normally S$500). However, please note that you are still responsible for your travel expenses to Singapore. Scholarship requests are part of the registration process and must be made in advance.
To participate fully in the Summit, plan to arrive the afternoon of Tuesday, March 13, and depart anytime on Saturday, March 17. The Summit begins on the morning of Wednesday, March 14, and ends in the evening on Friday, March 16. You are welcome to arrive early or extend your stay in Singapore after the Summit. However, lodging will only be provided on event days (check in on Tuesday and check out on Saturday).
You should fly into the Singapore Changi Airport (code: SIN). However, you may discover cheaper flights into Kuala Lumpur (KUL), with a short 1-hour flight connection to Singapore Changi. Depending on where you are traveling from, Kuala Lumpur may be a good option for your international leg, and connecting flights are quite cheap.
We will provide ground transportation to and from the Singapore Changi Airport for participants arriving on Tuesday, March 13, and departing on Saturday, March 17. In addition, daily transportation will be available from the Summit hotels to the event venue and back. If you are planning to arrange your own lodging, it may still be possible for you to utilize the Summit shuttle depending on where you book (see the Lodging section for recommendations). Please note that if you are traveling on different days, or at non-peak hours, it may not be possible to utilize Summit transportation, but we can provide recommendations for alternate methods of transportation.
Singapore does require a travel visa for passport holders from certain countries. Visit this website to check if you will need an entry visa: http://www.ica.gov.sg/enteranddeparting/before/entryvisa (Note that there is a list of Assessment Level 1 countries and a list of Assessment Level 2 countries further down the page). We will assist you in gathering the documentation you will need to obtain your visa. Please allow at least 30 days before arrival, and be aware that there will be a fee of S$30 (SGD) for processing.
If you are coming as a NEXT Silver participant, we will make all your lodging arrangements for you. We have rooms reserved at a variety of hotels within 10–15 minutes driving distance from the event venue. These include the Ramada Hotel at Zhongshan Park, Days Hotel at Zhongshan Park, Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium, and Furama Riverfront. We will notify you of the hotel to which you are assigned and arrange appropriate transportation. All hotels provide complimentary WiFi.
You are welcome to make your own lodging arrangements for the Summit, if that is your preference. If you would still like to take advantage of the Summit shuttle to the event venue each day, we recommend staying in the Havelock Road area. Recommended hotels include: Four Points by Sheraton, Grand Copthorne Waterfront, Copthorne King’s, The Warehouse Hotel, and Hotel Miramar. Each of these hotels is located within walking distance of the shuttle pick-up point. Another recommended hotel is Ibis Styles Singapore on Macpherson, which is a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk to the event venue. If you decide to book your own hotel, please note that you will only need to pay the NEXT Red rate of S$100 (SGD) for Summit admission.
Lodging is provided as part of the NEXT Silver package, with check-in on Tuesday, March 13, and check-out on Saturday, March 17. Times for check-in and check-out may vary depending on the hotel you are assigned. However, you can generally expect to be able to access your room on Tuesday afternoon and vacate it on Saturday morning. You are welcome to arrive a few days earlier, or extend your stay in Singapore after the Summit, but you will need to make your own lodging and transportation arrangements. It may be possible to take advantage of the discounted Summit rate if you stay in the same hotel.
Yes, in order to keep costs low, we have arranged double occupancy rooms (twin beds) for everyone. Expect to share a room with another NEXT participant. If you are traveling with someone, you can request for them to be assigned as your roommate.

The Summit schedule has been intentionally designed to maximize your opportunity to hear from as many speakers as possible. And it leaves plenty of time for you to connect with other participants and customize your NEXT experience. Meals are a great time to have one-on-one or small group conversations. The NEXT Connect sessions, held every morning and afternoon, allow you to select which workshop you would like to attend; you can also use that time to explore or get into deeper discussions. Currently, evenings are free after dinner for you to relax or discover the city. Check out the daily schedule here.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately if you have a change of plans. We will be sorry to miss you at the event! If you registered for the Summit and find that you can no longer attend, please be aware that your registration fee is non-refundable. We will put your payment towards scholarships for participants in financial need.
