Americas Area

The primary mandate of the Americas team is to empower, equip and encourage local, indigenous Christians in reaching this generation of young people.

Primary ministries include camps, Campus Life Clubs (on site at schools), Teen Parents, AIDs prevention, sports, and juvenile justice (prison work).

Two main strategies that undergird these programs are:

  1. Prayer – There are over 100,000 intercessors registered and praying for outreach, including National Days of Prayer for Youth, and
  2. Young Leaders – There is a new generation of over 100 gifted and called young people who are being coached, mentored and “released” for key national positions.


An invite to PRAY!

This is our second year celebrating a generation by setting apart a day to collectively pray for a generation! God is “up to something” – He is moving and working powerfully in and through teenagers and it is our privilege to support and invigorate this move of the Holy Spirit with our prayers. On August 12th, please join us in praying for the over 250 million teenagers of the Americas.  The objective is to have every generation praying for kids – grandparents, parents and young children praying for teenagers. AND to have teens praying for teens. This is not about filling a stadium or planning a large prayer meeting. This is instead about praying where you are at, at some point on August 12th with teens and for teens.  Take an hour that day to pray for the generation that God is releasing into ministry. Pray for Redemption and Revival.  A transformed generation will impact our nations. Prayer is our love gift to this generation.
