Seventh Day Slumber's Joseph Rojas becomes CEO of Revolution Generation

THE POPULAR ZJAM Youth Ministries has been renamed Revolution Generation and appointed rock singer and frontman of Seventh Day Slumber, Joseph Rojas, as their CEO and president. Said John Young of the organisation, "We are so excited about the future of Revolution Generation. We know that God brought us together with Joseph and Seventh Day Slumber. Joseph has the heart, experience and vision to lead this ministry to the next level in the battle for teens. Now is the time and I know we are a part of a greater movement to raise up a new generation of the church." Rojas is well known for his testimony about his own salvation from self-destructive drug and alcohol addictions, and near prison sentence and death. Prior to starting Seventh Day Slumber in 1996 Joseph earned a degree in psychology that helped him to become owner, counsellor, and director of a chemical dependency centre in Texas. He has also gone to Bible School and is an ordained minister. Said Rojas, "I understand what it means to hurt so badly that suicide seems like the only option. I know what it means to be abused, to be addicted, to feel abandoned and empty, hopeless and depressed, lost and confused. But I also understand what it means to be accepted by a King and loved by the creator of the universe. We are a generation who has no clue who we are. Our young people are searching for purpose, a reason to live. We need to get them the message of Jesus Christ at any cost. We need a Revolution!"

Revolution Generation aims to raise up a generation of new leaders and missionaries, as well as reach out to the lost and hurting. This goal is realised through various branches of the organisation including a mentorship programme, a radio show (265 markets in North America and Europe, including Cross Rhythms Radio), crisis lines ( with nearly 100,000 teens reached in 2006), discipleship resources and youth conferences. The event branch will also now expand its reach through the existing ministry of Seventh Day Slumber, who recently released their third album 'Finally Awake'. CR
