Let $A$ be a Banach ternary algebra over a scalar field $\mathbb{R}$ or $\mathbb{C}$ and $X$ be a Banach ternary $A$-module. Let $\sigma, \tau$ and $\xi$ be linear mappings on $A$, a linear mapping $D : (A,[ ]_A) \to (X, [ ]_X)$ is called a ternary $(\sigma,\tau,\xi)$-derivation, if
$$D([xyz]_A) = [D(x)\tau(y)\xi(z)]_X + [\sigma(x)D(y)\xi(z)]_X + [\sigma(x)\tau(y)D(z)]_X$$
for all $x,y, z \in A$. In this paper, we investigate ternary $(\sigma,\tau,\xi)$-derivation on Banach ternary algebras, associated with the following functional equation
$$f(\frac{x + y + z}{4}) + f(\frac{3x - y - 4z}{4}) + f(\frac{4x + 3z}{4}) = 2f(x).$$
Moreover, we prove the generalized Ulam-Hyers stability of ternary $(\sigma,\tau,\xi)$-derivations on Banach ternary algebras.
