Generation LINK is an intensive discipleship program owned and operated by local churches through national and international partnership.

Generation LINK trains young adults through the local church to be lifelong disciple-makers, whether as future pastors, church planters, missionaries, or men and women in the marketplace.

 

Generation LINK operates through sending and receiving participants; churches receive participants to disciple and equip, with the intention of sending them out on mission.

Generation LINK is defined by its five core values

  • Intentional Discipleship

    Be mentored by pastoral and ministerial staff, trained to mentor others, and equipped to advance the gospel.

  • Ministry Experience

    Use your gifts and passions to serve through various ministries of the local church.

  • Gospel Community

    Live, learn, serve, and have fun together as part of a local body of believers.

  • Leadership Development
