Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem Mission Generation addresses is the degradation of sociality because school-age children PK-12 are not being taught faith-based ethics and morals in schools. Lack of ethics and morals has resulted in increased violence, crime, teen pregnancy, illiteracy, suicide, substance use, truancy, and gang participation which have contributed to high dropout rates. The ministry seeks to provide students, teachers, and parents with the tools they need to make quality life decisions based upon the Word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit, allowing them to succeed in spirit, soul, and body.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Chaplain Program

In the past three decades, Mission Generation has developed a viable approach to reaching the largest unreached people group in the world, children between the ages of 4 and 14. The ministry accomplishes this goal through public schools.
1) We actively recruit teachers, counselors, parents, and church members to become school chaplains.
2) We equip future chaplains with two 128-hour online courses. Those who pass the courses and fulfill the requirements receive a Post Baccalaureate diploma that certifies them as spiritual school counselors or chaplains. This certification is recognized by teacher unions, school boards, and national governments.
3) Chaplains and spiritual counselors minister to and pray with students, school staff, and parents. They lead school assemblies with prayer and help establish Ekklesia on campus.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Mission Generation works through public education to win, disciple, and send PK-12th grade youth. The ministry goal is to have 100 million people in discipleship by 2025 by offering the school chaplain program in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

There is a massive lack of school counselors throughout public schools worldwide. The strategy is for Mission Generation to fill this void with certified spiritual school counselors and chaplains. Teacher unions and school boards recognize spiritual school counselors/chaplains, allowing chaplains to have designated rooms for counseling and praying with the students and parents. School chaplains also have the opportunity to share God’s word at school assemblies. Teachers certified as chaplains receive increased pay and qualify for administrative promotions.

Mission Generation has a world-class team of writers, editors, programmers, designers, illustrators, photographers, videographers, computer engineers, accounts, managers, and ministers creating and managing accredited training programs that certify teachers and parents as spiritual school counselors and chaplains.

The ministry has a long track record of success. It is governed by a diverse group of engaged board members and advised by education professionals, all of which indicate a high level of transparency and accountability.

Mission Generation tracks six variables to evaluate progress:
1. Number of people enrolled in online spiritual school counselor and chaplain courses.
2. Number and percentage of graduates from online courses.
3. Number of spiritual school counselors and chaplains placed in schools.
4. The total number of schools by country served by spiritual school counselors and chaplains.
5. The average number of students, teachers, and parents serviced by each spiritual school counselor or chaplain.
6. Anecdotal outcomes in school districts traced to the chaplain program, primarily the increase in high school graduations and the reduction of school dropouts, teen pregnancies, and suicides.

23 countries
22,107 spiritual school counselors and chaplains
23,709 schools in the program
21,343,356 people in discipleship

Impact

Up to 37% increase in high school graduations
Up to 80% reduction teen pregnancies
ZERO suicides reported

Chaplain Presence Improved
Student’s behavior and respect for authorities
Student’s self-respect
Student’s confidence and openness to discuss personal and family issues
Student’s motivation and goal setting
Grades
Inter-student relationships
Student-teacher relationships
Attitudes about solving problems and or overcoming personal or family challenges

Chaplain Presence Decreased
Bullying
Alcohol and drug consumption
Reported violence at school and in the home

Social Impact explanation
In Latin America, there are few baseline indicators. Poor school records make it difficult to obtain proof-based evidence. Social impact is therefore based primarily on anecdotal evidence. As such, not every item has a percentage. The percentages that are given are an average across several countries.

One noticeable observation is the overall health and improvement of a community when the school chaplain program is adopted across an entire school district. When all the students in an area are involved in the program, it reduces the negative components and peer pressure, elevating everyone.
