You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:14-16).
Generations Church is literally a community set on the hilltop of Rayford Road! We have been strategically placed by God in this location to be a Ray of Hope, shining the light of Christ through good works that directly affect our communities struggling families.
Outside our doors are children and families in need. There are hungry, hurting, homeless, and neglected kids within our grasp.This is the goal of RayfordHope: to provide empowering assistance to Rayford's children and families in need and transform this community with the love of Jesus Christ. We target issues of hunger, poverty and neglect among children and families in our neighborhood.
Together we can have an impact on those within our sphere of influence with the love of Jesus and hands-on provision.
Wrapping Our Arms Around the World!
At Generations, we are passionate about world missions! Grace Global Outreach is the local and international missions arm of our church.
We believe that everyone has a part to play in God's plan to reach the whole world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But it takes all of us working together, each person bringing their own unique calling and gifting. That's why we partner with other proven ministries to help further the Kingdom of God around the world and right here in America.

"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans..." James 1:27
During a trip to Northern India in 2010, Pastor Albert met a local pastor, Peter Subba, who was caring for 10 children in his tiny home, along with his own wife and children. All of these children had lost one or both parents and had been abandoned by any remaining family. Despite having very little himself, Pastor Subba was doing all he could to give these orphans a loving home.
When Pastor Albert heard the story, God placed an unmistakable mandate in his heart to see these children well cared for. He determined to build a home that would provide a comfortable place to live and to provide them a quality education until they are able to care for themselves.
Ordinary people doing extraordinary things!
The 100 Club is reaching unreached people all over the world with the good news of Jesus. We are changing the lives of thousands by building churches in rural villages that are barely accessible to the outside world. The "100 Club Equation" is simple:
100 People Giving $40/mo = 1 New Church!
Members pledge to give just $1.33 a day or $40 a month. Through your contributions, the 100 Club so far has helped to construct 609 life-giving churches in Africa, Asia, and Central America.
These new churches stand as a beacon of light in impoverished villages. We are literally seeing entire regions come to Christ through the building of churches. Generations to come will finally know what it is like to grow up with their own church. In addtion, the churches are often used as schools for children who might otherwise have walked for miles to get an education.
Every year, around Christmas time, we use our Christmas Offering for Jesus to build 100 Club churches. This year our goal is to fund at least six new worship structures in the remote villages of East Africa, India, or Central America.
Imagine walking dozens of miles through lion country, back and forth every week, in order to tell people about Jesus, to preach in a tiny village church, or to provide education to poor children who have no school.
That's what hundreds of native evangelists do every single day in the bush regions of Kenya and in the mountains of Guatemala and Northern India. Some of these pastors will travel up to 20 km just to reach and disciple a small group of believers they have led to Jesus. These heroic preachers are willing to walk; nevertheless the great distance limits their ability to do all they desire to do for God.
We've found a simple way to help. "Motorbikes for Missionaries" purchases rugged off-road motorbikes that can stand up to the torturous terrain. With a basic, low cost, low maintenance motorbike, these dedicated evangelists can double and even triple the number of people they can reach. Fledgling groups of believers meeting under a tree or in a hut can be discipled and nurtured because their evangelist pastor can get to them regularly. New villages can be exposed to Christ because of something as simple as a motorbike.
