LOUISVILLE — The Congregational Ministries Publishing (CMP) ministry of the Presbyterian Mission Agency and GenOn Ministries have launched a newfound collaboration in order to support more churches with the best educational resources available.
“Partnering with denominations and other organizations to reach further with our resources is exciting,” said Liz Perraud, executive director of GenOn Ministries, a 50-year old nonprofit organization whose mission is to equip faith communities for Christian discipleship through intergenerational relationships. “We all want the same thing—to equip and support church leaders and volunteers in their ministry. Working in collaboration with Congregational Ministries Publishing helps us do that well.”
The relationship between the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and GenOn Ministries goes back over 50 years. GenOn, previously known as Youth Club and The LOGOS Ministry, sprang up as a grassroots organization of Beulah Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Rev. Dale Milligan, the organization’s founder, envisioned developing disciples of Jesus Christ by training and resourcing churches in dozens of Christian denominations in their ministry with children and youth.
To inaugurate the partnership, Mark Hinds, publisher of CMP, is leading the project to revise GenOn’s Faith for Life Bible study curriculum. In addition to Faith for Life, CMP is also offering GenOn’s resources for midweek ministry and intergenerational ministry.
Congregational Ministries Publishing serves to the glory of God as a ministry of the Presbyterian Mission Agency of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). To that end, we pledge to produce and provide excellent and faithful educational resources that help people and congregations. GenOn and CMP materials are available for purchase through The PC(USA) Store.
