Dave Donaldson writes, “Jesus commanded us to care for ‘the least of these,’ but we have to admit
that many of our churches have often cared the least for anyone but themselves.” Enter the
relentless generation—young men and women who see the greatest needs around the world and won’t rest
until they are met. They persevere in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges because they
are confident in God’s ability to transform lives and change the course of entire nations.
, Donaldson takes an honest look at some of the tragic problems that face real,
human beings who are struggling against the odds and fighting a losing battle. But bigger than all
these problems are the hearts and desires of the relentless who are joining forces with others and
allowing God to do something great in and through them.
When it comes to the troubles of our world, you are either part of the problem or part of the
solution. Do you feel a movement of hope gaining force all around you, drawing you toward making the
world a better, safer, healthier, and hope-filled place? Then you may be part of the relentless
generation, regardless of your age or position in life, individuals who:
• believe they can change the world through any profession,
• are committed to making the church more relevant and not abandoning it,
• humbly serve local leaders so they are encouraged and better equipped,
• hold charities accountable to the funds they raise,
• will do whatever it takes to defend others from injustice,
• are willing and eager to learn from the poor, and
• know that nothing is impossible with God.
Join the relentless generation, which will never give up because it believes in, and lives from, the
Apostle Paul’s words: “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in
despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down but not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:8–9).
