We want to give preteens a place of their own, where they can grow in their relationship with Christ and with each other.
The NXT LVL Ministry is a special ministry just for our fourth and fifth graders – a bridge between children’s ministry and youth ministry. Preteens need a place where people understand their unique needs and cater ministry to their abilities. In our preteen ministry, we have the tremendous opportunity to lead kids in anticipation of the wonderful things God has in store for them while giving them a vision of how God can use them now. Students will grow in their relationship with Christ through customized programming with opportunities to ask questions and be challenged.
Our Preteens meet weekly on Wednesday Nights from 6:30-8:00pm, and Sunday mornings during all three services (8:15am, 9:30am, & 10:45am) in the D building.
Special activities and trips, specifically designed for this group, are planned on a regular basis. Activities include retreats, summer camps, and fellowship trips.

Hello, my name is Frank Pinterics, and I currently I live in Chandler, AZ with my wife and 2 children. We are originally from the Seattle area but moved to Arizona in 2014. My wife is an accountant and Chief Financial Officer for a printing company here in Phoenix, and I currently work at Arizona Community Church (ACC) as the Children’s Director. I entered ministry about in 2015 when my son was in preschool and discovered I had a calling for it. I am also working on my Master of Divinity at GCU.

Back when I had spare time I loved to play volleyball (former collegiate indoor setter/hitter) in various sand leagues around the valley. As of late, I have spent my extra time coaching my son’s Little League baseball team and taking my daughter to dance classes. Our family is also big Seattle Seahawk fans!
