In 2003, after a season of prayer, God spoke clearly to the hearts of our founders, Jacques and Lizzy van Bommel. God challenged them to help reach people with the Gospel that were not being reached by traditional Sunday ministry in South Africa. God challenged them to reach a generation of children, and to concentrate on the influences in their lives of young adults.
Jacques and Lizzy took a leap of faith, and Reaching a Generation was registered as a non-for-profit ministry in August of that year. Since then, Reaching a Generation has reached millions of children with the Gospel and launched several effective ministry follow-up programmes across Southern Africa. Children’s lives are being changed, and we believe that they will go on to change the world around them! Reaching a Generation is not just a name, it is a mission. To see a generation reached, so they can reach even further!
