About Every Generation Ministries
In response to God’s love for children and for His Church, Every Generation Ministries was founded in 1993 to transform children in Christ through His Church. The ministry found its beginning in Poland, but over the last 23 years, has expanded to work in 13 countries on four continents.
We are committed to developing National Ministry Teams that are led by local Christian leaders. We believe that local Christian leaders are best suited to govern, staff and fund ministries that will equip churches in their countries for effective ministry to children and their families. Our commitment to establish National Ministry Teams flows out of our understanding of incarnational ministry and the stewardship of the resources entrusted to us.
Incarnational Ministry – In Colossians 1:15-29, we see the very heart of incarnational ministry.Minimizing the barrier separating God and humanity, Jesus Christ chose to identify with humanity (c.f.Hebrews 4:15) by taking on the form of a man and becoming one of us. He affected his purpose for the world from within it. Affirming incarnational ministry, EGM believes the local church is best served from within, with the fewest cultural and linguistic barriers possible.
Stewardship of Resources – God has entrusted us with resources and we are accountable to Him for the stewardship of those resources. The parable of the talents (c.f. Matthew 25) makes it clear that God expects us to maximize His resources. Within many cultures, there are mature Christian leaders whom God has called to minister to children. Working with these leaders maximizes the financial resources of the ministry. For these two reasons, EGM seeks out local Christian leaders who share the vision that God has given. We partner with those leaders to develop national ministries that will transform children in Christ through His Church.
Vision for Every Generation Ministries
God has called Every Generation Ministries to develop a growing number of Model Children’s Workers by establishing National Ministry Teams that are governed, staffed and fully funded by the local Christian community in 38 countries where over 75% of the world’s children live.
National Ministry Teams provide innovative leadership development training programs and culturally relevant Bible teaching resources to children’s workers, serving in local churches, so that children will experience transformation in Christ through His Church.
About the Ministry Toolbox
To establish National Ministry Teams in 38 countries where over 75% of the world’s children live, the Ministry Toolbox is a much-needed organizational, capacity-building resource. We believe that this will allow the ministry to develop the infrastructure needed to support significant ministry growth and transform more children in Christ through His Church.
The current ministry development programs available in the Ministry Toolbox are:
- Board of Directors
- National Ministry Team Director
- Model Children’s Worker
- Leader of Leaders
- Titus Project
- Support Discovery
Hoped-for outcomes of the Ministry Toolbox
- God would open new doors for ministry opportunities.
- A significant, spirit-led movement in support of children’s ministry would develop through the Church.
- A shared resource for a significant number of churches and Christian ministries.
