A Generation for the Cultural Mission - A Unique Life Filled with Wisdom

Who we are

Presence – a New Generation for the Cultural Mission

 

Presence’s Mission Statement

Presence Quotient®, also known as Presence, is a Christian 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that equips individuals and families to become a new generation of Christian cultural missionaries who have the skills and wisdom to lead, serve, apply Christian values in their daily lives, bridge the cultural and generational gaps, and create healthy families and multicultural communities through training programs, interactive skill-building seminars and workshops, educational resources, and professional assessment and consultations. In response to a vision from God, Dr. Agnes Ip founded Presence in September 2003 , and Presence was established as a Christian non-profit organization in November 2004.

Since its beginnings in 2003, Presence Quotient® extended its services and now offers a diverse array of programs, workshops, publications, and resources designed to build healthy families, churches, and communities. Services are also provided through two initiatives: RE:NEW a Presence movement established in 2011 and Presence Possibilities™ established in 2012. Presence has partnered with its affiliate partners Presence Hong Kong Limited since 2012 and Presence Quotient Canada™ since 2021.

 

Presence’s Faith Statement

 

Presence and Our Initiatives

There are three parts to Presence: Presence Quotient®, RE:NEW a Presence movement, and Presence Possibilities™:

  • 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.
