What is Presence?
Presence is an organization that reaches out to family and youth, helping them to live in accordance with God’s values in their daily lives. We work to protect faith in families and seek to strengthen family relationships to equip them to serve others in their community. We want to encourage others to live God-centered lives. That’s why we’re called Presence, because it’s all about God’s presence in our everyday lives and in every aspect of life. We also seek to inform Christians about how current cultural issues affect our faith and to equip them to respond in truth and love.
How is our ministry responding to this generation’s needs?
There are three parts to Presence: Presence Quotient®, RE:NEW a Presence movement, and Presence Possibilities. Our offices are located in both Southern and Northern California. We also extended our services to Hong Kong in 2012 when we established our sister organization, Presence Hong Kong.
- Presence Quotient® provides holistic training to churches, families and individuals. We focus especially on building bridges between the two-generational gap in families and between churches and society. We use the word “Quotient” in our name because we train people in the areas of Intelligence Quotient, Emotional Quotient, Moral Quotient, Adversity Quotient, and the like—everything is about building the skills needed to handle challenges in life.
- RE:NEW challenges youth and young adults to apply their faith in every aspect of their lives, encouraging them to live with purpose. We seek to view our campuses, workplaces, and homes as a mission field, and to recognize the impact we can make in the here and now, utilizing every talent and hobby for the glory of God.
- Presence Possibilities focus on empowering youth and adults to find their niche where they can utilize their God-given talents to serve, particularly in the work place. It’s all about being in the right role to fulfill your purpose. One of our main services is providing consultation to help people find their strengths and interests through professional assessments, by which we point them suitable career fields. What’s unique about Presence Possibilities is that it carries both the mission of Presence Quotient® and RE:NEW, and aims to educate and train individuals to serve in the community in a way that glorifies God.
