In March of 2009, a small team from Youth with a Mission Tyler, Texas, called Take Action, visited my local church. At the end of their program, I found myself at the front of the sanctuary, on my knees, with someone praying out loud and over me. I can still remember hearing them praying, “God I pray that this young man would have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You;...

Recently, a group of us from YWAM Tyler went on an outreach to Enchanted Lakes to serve with mercy ministries. We cut hair, handed out food, and provided medicine for those in need. 

It was July 28, 1982, exactly 35 years ago to date, when Keith Green and others took off from an airstrip almost walking distance from where I am sitting now, leaving the earth behind never to return. The airplane accident that took the life of singer songwriter Keith Green, shook the lives of the evangelical Christian community around the world.

Let's just go ahead and get it out on the table. Hasn't taking a break between high school and college or college and a job been something you've wished for? There is a way to make that happen and for many it's been the best decision they ever made. But don't get me wrong. Everyone needs to consider what kind of Gap Year they are going to take. 

The first time I heard about a Gap Year was when...

As I sat in the classroom, listening to the speaker talk, I could barely focus on what he was saying because I was pumped about going on outreach. I was ready to do anything, go anywhere to share Jesus with someone who’d never heard about him.

It doesn’t take an astute observer to realize that there are many things in the world today that are not as they should be. Modern society is like a piece of shattered plexiglass; it’s still intact, but its integrity is compromised. The entire framework of our human reality is filled with cracks and fissures, all of which can and should be fixed by focusing and investing into our vertical...

“Nah, I don’t need to do that!” I emphatically told God one day after being asked by our ministry leaders to do a YWAM DTS. At the age of 34, my husband and I had already been serving the Lord in full-time ministry for years. We had worked as youth pastors in Kansas, while attending school. Then we planted a church in South Carolina. Missions was nothing new for us because we had led numerous...

In 2012 I reluctantly attended the School of Evangelism (SOE) at YWAM Tyler, which traveled to Greece, Germany, and France for outreach. You see this school was part of the launching in becoming a missionary; however, I had no desire or plan to do that at all. I was back and forth with God about what He wanted me to do in the future, but because I love Jesus and because I wanted to honor Him,...

We are blessed here at Youth With A Mission to be exposed to incredible things around the world that few will ever experience. This privilege is what propels many of us out of bed to continue doing what we do as full-time missionaries. However, through this privilege there has been some difficult, inconceivable moments revealing the depths of human depravity. We have taken a glimpse into what...

 

I used to say street evangelism wasn't something I was called to do. I didn't like the way I'd seen it done or been pressured to do it. I had no interest in shouting at people on street corners, telling them they were going to hell. I also didn't enjoy awkwardly handing out cheesy tracts. Things have changed for me though. Now, I love street evangelism and find myself addicted to it! I...
