Our Story

Next Level Church held its first experience on March 23, 2008, in Dover, NH. From day one, NLC has not wavered from its desire to be a church that people who don’t go to church love to attend. Its vision to be a loving, relevant, life-giving church was birthed in the heart of Lead Pastor Josh Gagnon and his wife, Jennifer, and has sparked a movement in unchurched communities throughout North America.

Today, NLC shares the love of Jesus with thousands of people across multiple locations every week and has been consecutively named among the fastest growing churches in America by Outreach Magazine. Next Level continues to see the kind of growth that only God can provide through its commitment to reaching people who do not know Jesus and the passion, prayers, and sacrifice of thousands of people who give of their time, talents, and resources to make this vision a reality.

Through the power and favor of God, NLC continues to see its influence expand into new communities where we are able to serve people, love our neighbors, and give hope to those who do not yet follow God. Every year, as God provides new opportunities to reach even more people, we look forward expectantly to what God continues to do in and through His church.
