"Reaching a new generation through music."
Ever heard of RevGen? It’s short for a ministry to teens called Revelation Generation, founded by Divinity alumnae, Kim Grom, and her husband Bob. The mission of RevGen is to “let today’s young people know there is a God who loves them and created them for His purpose, in a language that’s contemporary and with rocking music that’s relevant.” The Groms know one to reach young people is through cultural connections and icons that are hip, fun and engaging. So every year, they host the RevGen Music Festival on their 100-acre farm in New Jersey. This past year, almost 20,000 people showed up for the festival, which was crammed full of great bands, extreme sports, amazing food and, of course, the transforming power of the gospel.
Kim, also an ordained minister through the Assemblies of God International, attributes much of her ministry wisdom and success to the theological education and ministry training she received at the School of Divinity. You can find out more at their ministry website: www.revgen.org.
