A parent, or guardian, meets with one of our Discipleship Facilitators, in person or by phone, to go through our Essentials for Spiritual Growth process.
After going through the Essentials for Spiritual Growth process, the parent begins going through the same process with their own child or teenager.
After processing the Essentials for Spiritual Growth with their child, the parent becomes a Discipleship Facilitator with other parents.
4Gens started at Woodmen Valley Chapel in response to parent’s disengaging with child’s spiritual growth. 4Gens' main focus was on equipping parents in a one-on-one format so the parents could equip their children. 4Gens started purposefully small by discipling four women and four men through the Essentials for Spiritual Growth
Ministry grows to eleven parents in Colorado Springs and two in Minnesota. Added PrayerMats as a tool for the prayer section of the Essentials for Spiritual Growth. Further developed methodology for reaching future generations (Exodus 20:5b). Added the “baton” of faith as a concept with a real baton and letter inside as the physical representation.
Expanded vision to help a parent reach their great-grandchildren (4th generation) for Christ. Added second church in Colorado Springs as a partner and added first parent in Texas. First children discipled by parents. Created first video showing results of an equipped parent meeting with a child. Converted the Essentials for Spiritual Growth to electronic format.
Incorporated 4Gens as a non-profit organization 501(c)3. Added new church in Minneapolis to drive 4Gens forward. Facilitated new parents remotely across the United States, and brought our first international participant (Japan) online. Modified focus to work to equip Millennials in passing on a legacy of faith to their children and to their generation. Added Life Coaching certification to assist disciplees with life issues they are facing. Added prayer journal tool to “Prayer” section.
Leveraging technology to create tools based upon Essentials to equip parents to create conversation and pass on faith to their children.
"I have noticed the potential of the tool provided by 4Gens after actually using it for ministering, this is because it teaches from the very beginning about the intimate relationship our loving Heavenly Father wants us to have with him based on irrefutable biblical facts. 4Gens is indeed a very powerful tool from God”.Daniel
"4Gens has been an amazing tool and has given us so much guidance, not only for our lives, but for ways to share/disciple our kids to grow in their own faith."Joel
Just amazing, totally God focused – I learned so much about God and my relationship with him! The best is yet to come, God is just getting started in my life. Thanks is not enough to my friend and brother in Christ, Reed. There is much work to be done in the name of Christ.Rick
Meeting with my mentor was amazing. I'd talked about these topics before, but never in such a fresh and conversational way.Leslie
Now I know what I believe and why I believe it.McKenna
Maybe the biggest deal in being a believer and follower of Christ is the assurance of rest at the end of a life. Having just experienced this with my dad, I realized that at the end of a life, “all that matters is faith.” Pop had this assurance that his path forward was secure in […]
I grew up in Minnesota – The land of 10,000 lakes – and faith that temperatures will consistently freeze these lakes every winter. Frozen lakes can be very enjoyable. Skating, snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice-sailing and other activities bring this “winter wonderland” to life on a frozen lake! I even remember the Winter Carnival, where ice […]
