LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
In the two years since New Generations moved from being a division of Cityteam Ministries to becoming an independent organization, God has done more than we could have ever imagined!
Anniversaries are a time to reflect on the good things of the past. In this report, you will see just a few of the many testaments to the greatness of God that we are celebrating.
But anniversaries are also about the promise of the future. We believe that what God has done so far is just the ‘down payment’ on what He plans in the days ahead. We are firmly convinced that the best is yet to come!
As we celebrate the past and dream into the future, we are well aware that we stand on the shoulders of men and women who prayed, cried, bled, and died to make these things possible. To them we say, “thank you” and to God be the glory!
Privileged to partner with you,
President, New Generations

CELEBRATE WITH US ALL THAT GOD HAS BEEN DOING OVER THE LAST 2 YEARS!
A BRIEF TEAM HISTORY
While New Generations is a 2 year old organization, our team has been serving together for more than 15 years. Previously, our team was the International Church Planting division of Cityteam Ministries. The story of God’s glory is that since March 2005, the Lord has used this team and the DMM* process to catalyze 75,931 new churches, with 1,783,732 new Christ followers. During the last 15 years, our team has witnessed God launch 128 DMMs. And while we are have seen exponential growth in the last couple years, we recognize that we are standing on the shoulders of those who came before us.
We define a Disciple Making Movement (DMM) as at least 100 new churches that have multiplied to the fourth generation or beyond.
What we have seen God do in the last 2 years
In the summer of 2018, our team launched a new organization focused on Disciple Making Movements. Since that time, we have engaged 229 new people groups and seen God raise up 345,102 new Christ Followers (90,188 from Muslim backgrounds), within 18,851 new churches, and the launch of 17 new Disciple Making Movements.
2 Year Accomplishments
New Generations launched as a new organization focused on Disciple Making Movements in the summer of 2018. Here’s a summary of what we have witnessed God do through the help of friends like you:
Jesus said, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5). In recognition of this reality, we put a lot of time and resources into mobilizing and training intercessors. By God’s grace, we now have a prayer base around the world that includes over 100,000 dedicated intercessors!
LEADERSHIP TRAINING & RESOURCES
While we are consistently doing leadership training and coaching around the world, during our largest event in the last two years, we filled a stadium in West Africa to train over 5,000 leaders involved in those movements. We have also released the book, “The Kingdom Unleashed” and written multiple articles on Disciple Making Movements.
Our teams have distributed 14,000 printed bibles and 13,500 audio bibles in 55 languages.
HELPING HURTING PEOPLE
At New Generations, we believe that for the gospel to be “good news” to hurting people, it must be something they experience, not just hear. So, we have been working hard to minister to people suffering from:
- Droughts & Floods
- Hurricanes & Cyclones
- Locust Infestations
- Persecution & Famine
- And Covid-19
HELPING NEGLECTED PEOPLE
We do not provide clean water, start schools, or help people feed themselves so that they’ll come to Jesus. We do it because we have come to Jesus! We have found that the doors of communities swing open when love knocks. And because of this, the journey starts where we want it to finish – with seekers becoming followers who love their neighbor as a lifestyle, not a program.
We’ve helped a wide range of people providing a future and hope through:
- Schools and Education
- Medical Camps and Clinics
- Distributing Eye Glasses
- Delivering Food and Water
- Establishing a Seed Bank
- Setting Up New Businesses
- Providing Micro-loans
We are bringing in qualified outside professionals to do an external audit to confirm the quantitative outcomes within movements.
We have launched what we believe is the first-ever quality assessment with movements. The purpose of this assessment is to evaluate the spiritual DNA expressed in lifestyles of prayer, obedience, replication, service, etc. and see how well it is transferring from one generation to another.
Both of these will be a multi-year initiatives that will provide us with the ‘actionable intelligence’ necessary to sustain and improve movements well into the future.
Thank you for your part in two years of inspiring impact for the Kingdom of God!
