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.

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 CenterGrimes. Galyn is in his 9th year as a full-time shop teacher
and cross country coach at the DCG middle school. He is also
in his 6th year as the pastor/teacher at the Faith Evangelical
Free in Audubon, Iowa.

History of Generation Word
In March of 2002 Galyn and Toni Wiemers hung up some flyers in West Des
Moines, Iowa and made a few phone calls to announce the first Bible
study. It would meet in their home every Monday night in April at 7:30.
Here are the memories recorded after that first Bible study :
"Attendance was 18. People started arriving at 7:20.
Class started about 7:55. Everyone was talking and having fun until
then. Randomly set up chairs. Made a tape. Used the white board.
Handed out notes and a flyer. Toni had snacks. Everyone stayed at
least 30 minutes after class. Some stayed longer. Seven people stayed
until 12:30. A lot of excitement. Should have more next week.“

The chart above shows the number of website hits per month from

attempt to take over our website. This appears to have been corrected
last fall. Now between 18-25% of visitors spend an hour or more on our
