The GOV Team

Volunteers at Generations of Virtue
The GOV team is comprised of 8 full-time volunteers in their 20s and 30s. With a desire to equip the nations to live a lifestyle of purity, the team diligently works to create events, speaking and print material, and helping young people see how God’s message of purity translates into our current culture. Whether the GOV team is on the road or hanging out at home, they are sure to be drinking way too much coffee. One of their favorite pastimes is jamming to worship songs. The team is blessed to live in the majestic mountains of Colorado and the beautiful countryside of western New York.
