Mission Generation is a non-profit, Bible-based character development program used in public and private schools (Pre K-12) to bring students, parents and teachers to salvation and train them in the practical application of the Word of God.
In 1995, founders Rocky and Joske Malloy traveled to Santa Cruz, Bolivia with a dream from God to see entire nations reached with the good news of Jesus and trained in the Word of God. In 1996, they started River of Life Church as a movie theater to utilize the free advertisement local newspapers gave theatres. The free Christian movies drew the masses. After the movie played, an altar call was given followed by worship and biblical teaching. Within 6 months average weekly attendance had grown to over 1,000. People traveled from all over to hear the Good News and be set free. By anyone’s standards we’re talking about a serious harvest!
But there was a problem. God had given Rocky the dream to disciple nations. At a growth rate of 1,000 people every 6 months, it was going to take 500 years just to reach the small country of Bolivia – let alone nations! Rocky began to seek the Lord for a new strategy. God led Rocky to the book of Acts. In Acts 19:9-10 it says that Paul taught the Gospel to ALL of Asia from a school. That was it! The public school system is one of the largest existing networks in any country and nearly all of society passes through the schoolhouse. By teaching Jesus in the public schools, we have the potential to see entire nations transformed!
In 1999, God opened the door for our first pilot program in the public schools of Bolivia. Today operations are expanding throughout Latin America. Teachers are being certified, parents are being equipped, and students are being trained in the Word of God through an accredited curriculum as a required school subject. God is opening doors in countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean from Mexico to Chile. With the power of God and your partnership, we will see an entire continent transformed!
