  1. GENERATION WORD Identification Generation Word is a local Bible teaching ministry that is internationally communicating the Word of God through books, cds and the internet. Purpose Generation Word is focused on communicating the Word of God to the people of this generation. Our goal is to stimulate spiritual growth and assist believers in attaining maturity in order that they might live fruitful lives in Jesus Christ. Ministry Generation Word teaches the Bible verse by verse in its historical setting and draws meaning out of the original languages. We categorically organize and compare each verse with the rest of scripture to form a unified theology that applies to our lives and our nation today. The Teacher Galyn Wiemers is the founder and teacher of Generation Word Bible Teaching Ministry. He began teaching the Bible in 1986, has served as a pastor for 14 years and has taught over 1,000 classes or sermons for Generation Word since it began in 2002. Galyn is a full-time public school teacher and coach.

  2. GENERATION WORD Who is Galyn Wiemers? Galyn and his wife Toni began Generation Word Bible Teaching Ministry in their living room in West Des Moines, Iowa in April of 2002. Galyn became a believer in Jesus Christ in 1976 at the age of 16. Galyn and Toni were married in 1981 and graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in 1983 with degrees in education. They have worked in public schools and coached since that time. Galyn coached his first varsity high school team in 1980 and began teaching high school shop in 1983. In 1985 they felt God calling them. Galyn wanted to attend a Bible College, but since they had already started a family this never happened. They began to attend Bible teaching churches. Galyn began to study at home and teach the Bible whenever and wherever he could. Over the years Galyn has served as a Sunday school teacher, a youth pastor, a head pastor, a Christian school chaplain, a Bible teacher and as a guest speaker at seminars and Bible college. In 2002 Galyn began Generation Word as a ministry to reach our nation with the Word of God. Galyn’s Bible teaching has now reached every state and is also requested, listened to, downloaded and read in over 60 other countries. Galyn and Toni have six sons: Justin, 25, is in the United States Marines, serving in Japan in broadcasting; Paul, 24, is a snowboard instructor at Steamboat in Colorado; Benjamin, 21, is training as an officer for the US Air Force and is in his third year at Iowa State University in computer engineering; Nathan (Hawkeye), 18, will study financing and jazz trumpet at the University of Northern Iowa. Zac, 16, is a junior at Valley in West Des Moines; Jacob, 14, is an eighth grader at Dallas Center-Grimes.
