the days of the closing of the Twentieth Century, God spoke to Greg Austin
about an emerging generation of leaders within the church. This "generation"
- the generation of leaders emerging at the turn of the Twenty-First Century
would be made up largely of younger, and thus "inexperienced" in
the ways of religion but passionate in their pursuit of God and the
manifestation of His kingdom in the earth. While the majority of these
"pursuers" are young, God said there would also be people of greater chronological age who would

tired-out programs. I'm not talking about a "religious elite" leading a
limping church with yesterday's anointing.
