Since 2005 we have worked full time with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Although we have served through Africa and Europe, our home base is at the University of the Nations in Kona, training and equipping the next generation of Missionaries. The U of N in Kona is our organizations largest training base.
YWAM is an international and interdenominational Christian missions movement. With the clear goal to "know God and to make him known", YWAM ministers through training, evangelism, and mercy ministries. Currently there are over 20,000 full-time staff worldwide, and we have ongoing projects in over 180 countries worldwide.
Currently, Jeff and Bethany work with the DTS department, training both YWAM Staff and Students through a variety of programs and avenues. Discipleship Training Schools are the foundational missions training program for all prospective staff of YWAM, and many students attend simply to receive six-months of training before returning to home, university, or the workplace. The Kona UofN campus graduates over 1200 DTS students annually. Bethany is currently co-leading the April Fire&Fragrance DTS.
Together Jeff and Bethany serve with the Fire&Fragrance community—a growing family of ministries—full of joy, completely surrendered to Jesus and wildly in love with his presence. We want to see the world changed by His love and are committed to bringing His good news to the ends of the earth! We consider it a great honor to take the gospel to those that have yet to know of his great love!
Jeff and Bethany regularly travel on short term missions and speaking trips or to visit teams on the field. They get stoked to see the love of Jesus being proclaimed to people who don't yet know this love.
