Combine two people with a burning desire to serve God, win the lost, minister to hurting people, anointed songs with a message, God given musical gifts and talents, and you end up with “Last Generation Ministries.” Based out of Somerset, PA, and formed in 1982, “Last Generation” consists of Mike and Karen Matieszyn. Married in 1979, Mike and Karen have dedicated their lives to the call of God and the furtherance of the Gospel.
Mike a former insurance agent, and Karen a former dental assistant, started “Last Generation Ministries” as a part-time ministry in 1982. In June of 1996, they answered the call of God on their lives by resigning their secular jobs and careers, and stepping out in full-time ministry. Both Mike and Karen, having been raised in Christian homes, dedicated their lives to Christ at a very early age. Their desire is to share Christ with a lost and dying world, and uplift and encourage those who are discouraged. Whether through a testimony, words of a song, a guitar instrumental or sharing the Gospel through the preaching of the Word, Mike and Karen strive to not just “entertain” but to “minister” so lives will be changed.
Since 1982, Mike and Karen under the name of “Last Generation” have been privileged to have made numerous recordings, and several of their songs have gone national, appearing on several Gospel Music charts across the nation. As one pastor said, “your music is just like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter day.” Mike and Karen have made the decision to do their part in fulfilling the Great Commission: “Go ye” by going; because as their name suggests: this could be the “Last Generation” before the Lord returns!!!
