Missional Generation is about equipping young people to be influential for God in every arena of life. Our work is to help the Church strengthen its voice and be at the cutting edge in society. We are convinced that young people can ignite this into action. We are currently located in Leeds and Bradford. The team has been actively working under the name of Missional Generation since April 6th, 2013. MG looks to extend any resources we have to anyone that might find it helpful.
Our Desire Is:
To draw together a multitude of resources, especially key people and investors from every arena of life to help inspire and guide young people. We draw on these individual’s own experiences of living out their faith and hear how they are having an influence across society. We hope that from these stories a generation will learn and work together to create their own expressions of sharing their faith and influencing their arenas of life.
Our Belief Is:
To see a united front of individuals, churches, charities and movements come together to equip, train, empower and release a generation into the intimate knowledge of Christ as well as to share His wonders to their peers in school, neighbourhood, friendship groups and other areas of life… all with a missional focus. To disciple a generation to develop a sacrificial mindset through participating in missional learning and practice.
Our Intentions Are:
To help young people develop as individuals who become an active resource, both sharing Jesus and knowing how He wants to use them: for example standing as agents against injustice both locally and globally. To teach them to see, learn and feel the way Christ feels and to declare in prayer the things that God is revealing and wanting to awaken across the UK.
The focus of MG is to help young people realise that mission does not just happen at specific organised events or gap year programmes, but that through their faith in God they can live a missional lifestyle every day. We hope to teach, coach and resource churches to share with young people how the 7 characteristics of mission we have within our theory can give a generation a positive start to help deepen their understanding for living intentionally missional.
Legacy of Missional Generation:
Missional Generation connecting along the M62:
We have working relationships with individuals, churches and Christian charities within the seven cities along the M62 corridor (Hull, Wakefield, Bradford, Leeds, Manchester, Salford and Liverpool). If you are from one of these cities we would like to connect with you and see how Missional Generation might be able to help support your work, and to learn from what you are doing.
