Clint and Hayley Kahler are the founders and directors of Nextgen Worship, a non-profit ministry and missional community focused on empowering people to carry heaven and shift culture. They are people champions. They thrive in settings both small and large, flowing in the prophetic and empowering people with God encounters that equip them to find their voice in the Kingdom. They have served as leaders in the local church for over 20 years, building, loving, and leading with the heart to create community and see nations impacted with the Presence of God.
