As a Pastor in training in Providence during 2011 Stephen Mook had an unexpected and unshakable burden to return back to his hometown of South Kingstown. The burden and dream from the beginning was to proclaim the good news of Jesus to the over 100,000 plus people in South County who have been made in the image of God.
The decision to plant Generation Church came after two years of praying and being constrained by the Spirit to plant the gospel with the vision to reach all generations on the unbreakable promises of God’s word:
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” (Psalm 46:10-11)
“Jesus is good, his unfailing love endures forever and his faithfulness continues in each generation.” (Psalm 100:5)
In the fall of 2013 Stephen (Lead Pastor and Church Planter) and his family returned to their hometown in Rhode Island after years of having a gospel dream. Generation Church began as a Bible study/Community Group in Stephen and Lindsay’s home. In 2014, God gave birth to Generation Church. Generation Church had their first public Sunday gathering at The Contemporary Theater on February 2, 2014. Along with a special Easter service at the South Kingstown High School.
We’re excited to see how Jesus continues to build Generation Church in these early days through his word and by the power of his Spirit.
No matter your reservations with religion, no matter your past, no matter your age and no matter how far you feel from God; we believe there is still good news for everyone. Jesus is good, his unfailing love endures forever and this faithfulness continues to each generation. Generation Church – The Vision
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
