Hey y'all! My name is Brooke Mason and I am currently working with a missions organization called YWAM.


YWAM (Youth With A Mission) is an interdenominational Christian organization that focuses on missionary work and training. The mission is to know God and make God known, as well as serve God's global purposes, and champion young people. YWAM has been sending missionaries around the world since 1960 and is one of the world's largest missionary training and sending organizations.


I just completed their Discipleship Training School this past June of 2024. But for me, missions began long before.

When I was 16 years old I went on my first mission trip to Thailand with my church in Allen, TX, called Church Eleven32.

My church partners in missions with YWAM, so I knew of YWAM during this time. After graduating high school, I was surprised when God called me into my local church's ministry school. I initially did not have a heart to work in ministry, let alone the 4 walls of a church rather than in the nations. I wanted to immediately go off to college and have fun. But what I didn't know at 19 was that God was giving me a heart for His people, in America and in the nations. As well, He was calling me into the entertainment industry to bridge the gap between missions and film.


After ministry school, I attended the University of Arkansas initially for Interior Design and Architecture but ended up getting my Bachelor's Degree in Communications. I thought I would work in Social Media and Marketing or Interior Design and maybe later in life would do something with the film industry or missions. I graduated college in 2020, the best year to graduate college:) Lol. In 2021, I started applying for Marketing jobs in Dallas. Being on the verge of accepting jobs, something in me did not have peace.


Shortly after not accepting a job, a door just happened to open in the film industry in Atlanta, Georgia. In August 2021, I moved to Atlanta for my first job on set working for 20th Century Fox and NBC under Disney. The next two years felt a bit like a rollercoaster in this industry. With Covid testing, vaccines, a shortage in jobs, and eventually in 2023, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) went on strike against AMPTP over labor disputes, and the whole industry shut down, leaving everyone without jobs.


During this time, I finally took a step towards what I felt God was inviting me into. I applied for a DTS with YWAM and left Georgia to head to YWAM’s biggest location in Kona in January 2024. Leaving a comfortable life in America is never easy, but I knew God was calling me into what he put in my heart years ago, which is to bring missions into the film industry. But even more than that my aim is to show the heart of God through signs, wonders, and miracles happening around the world in theaters for America and First World nations to see.


I believe in a living God who is alive and active and is after the lost and brokenhearted.
