Desiring God began inauspiciously in 1994 when John Piper handed off the church’s tape ministry to his assistant, Jon Bloom. What started with tapes and John’s books, Desiring God has blossomed into an international web ministry with 12,000+ free resources and 3.5+million monthly users. Today, John serves as lead teacher for the ministry.

The Gospel Coalition
We are a fellowship of evangelical churches in the Reformed tradition deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures. We have become deeply concerned about some movements within traditional evangelicalism that seem to be diminishing the church’s life and leading us away from our historic beliefs and practices. On the one hand, we are troubled by the idolatry of personal consumerism and the politicisation of faith; on the other hand, we are distressed by the unchallenged acceptance of theological and moral relativism. These movements have led to the easy abandonment of both biblical truth and the transformed living mandated by our historic faith. We not only hear of these influences, we see their effects. We have committed ourselves to invigorating churches with new hope and compelling joy based on the promises received by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
Rooted Youth Ministry
Statistics cite that perhaps the majority of students involved in youth ministries do not continue to attend church in college or as young adults. Most research surrounding this crisis considers the primary problem to be the message and theology of youth ministry, which Christian Smith described as “moralistic, therapeutic deism.” Rooted Ministry offers a place to reflect theologically on how student ministers can ground their message and ministries more deeply in the Cross and the Gospel of grace.
Youthworks’ vision is to see an effective youth and children’s ministry in every church. Youthworks College helps achieve this vision by raising up the next generation of church leaders through specialist training for youth and children’s ministry.
