God is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in him.
Desiring God began inauspiciously in the spring of 1994 when John Piper, then the 48-year-old pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, handed off the church’s tape ministry to his assistant Jon Bloom. Piper and Bloom founded the ministry and named it Desiring God after Piper’s book Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist.
What started with tapes of sermons, a few of Piper’s first books, and a single annual event, in God’s timing, has blossomed into a web-based ministry with 12,000+ resources and worldwide impact. To God be the glory!
