How it all got started

I remember where I was standing when I got the initial vision, the first ideas in my head for what would become NGI and the parenting resource known as Shaping Your Family Story.

Who is NGI?

NGI – Next Generation Institute is a not-for-profit and a U.S. registered 501(c)(3) organization. Our headquarters are located in sunny Central Florida not far from Disney World.

Our passion is to see a generation of young people raised with a sense of purpose, living with moral character, growing up with a strong sense of worth and value, prepared to live their lives with significance, purpose and joy.

We all know parenting is not an exact science.

There are no magic pills to take, no formulas to memorize that will produce perfect results. We are human, flawed and unique, yet awesomely, wonderfully and divinely created, with amazing potential!

Parents are the single most powerful influence in a child’s life. At NGI we are committed to helping you develop a parenting strategy… something that is doable, attainable and will help you through every stage of child-rearing.

NGI works with gifted professionals from around the country to bring you innovative yet simple insights and training you can use to help see your kids become, healthy, happy, successful and significant individuals.

We understand that today’s culture and society is different from previous generations. Yet, with all the problems and pitfalls, technology and culture affords us many exciting new opportunities.

Become a partner

The need for a ministry such as NGI is great.

Parents want to do a good job.  They just need a little help, a little encouragement, and a little direction.

We want to provide that help in culturally relevant ways, ways that don’t involve shame or judgment, just some honest, heartfelt help and insight offered by other parents who happen to have specific training, experience and expertise.

Will you help…

In order for us to operate, to grow, and to reach more and more parents, we need support from individuals and organizations. We would love for you to partner with us. If you would like to get involved by supporting us financially we would be so grateful. We have respected organizations willing to help us distribute copies of our book free of charge to families in need.
