Tom speaks with Jordan about what God is doing in this powerful Spark of Revival. A heritage of ministry through his family.

At 20 years old, Jordan's love for Christ is shining forth around the nation.

Jordan Whitmer, Founder / Executive Director, HowToLife Movement ®

     As a member of Generation “Z”, Jordan is uniquely positioned to impact his Generation with the Gospel.  Jordan has grown up in a multi-generational ministry family. He is a graduate of Liberty University, with a Bachelor’s in Religion: Biblical and Theological Studies, and is an ordained reverend.

     As a frequent speaker at churches and conferences, Whitmer challenges both young people and adults to join Jesus in fulfilling His Great Commission.  He has been the subject of numerous local and national media appearances for radio, television, and print.

     Jordan is passionate about mobilizing student leaders around the world to impact their generation for Christ.  He travels frequently, and can often be seen at Starbucks mentoring and encouraging young people to boldly lead for Jesus.


From Northern Arkansas, Jordan formed a prayer team in his high school and has seen great things in the youth of his area.

Forming The How To Life Movement as God has lead the way from 61 How to Life outreaches in the nation and around the world in 4 years time and in 19 states and 5 countries.

HowToLife is a fast-growing global youth movement of students mobilized together to lead their peers to stand and live for Jesus.

Your heart will break over a new study from George Barna, where he reports, “Generation Z is the Least Christian Generation in American History.”


  Here are some sobering conclusions --

  • 35% of Generation Z teens consider themselves to be atheist, agnostic, or not affiliated with any religion.

  • Only one out of three agree with the statement, “Lying is morally wrong.”

  • Only 4% of today’s teenagers hold a biblical worldview.


  These aren’t just statistics.  These represent lives of our generation.  I invite you to feel the brokenness of today’s youth.  The hurt. The pain. The lostness.

  So, how can we fix this?  How can we reverse these trends?  What we need is a spiritual awakening in today’s young people.  Our generation desperately needs Jesus.

        If a spiritual awakening DOESN’T HAPPEN, the future for this generation, this nation, and our world, is unthinkable.  We are one generation away from becoming a world that completely “forgot God.”

  Thank God He is raising up a movement!  HowToLife is a proven strategy that works.  The right message, the Gospel, is delivered through the right messengers – high school student leaders.  And God is transforming hearts.
