Hi! We are Brad and Maddie Owens, full time missionaries with Circuit Riders, a YWAM missions organization that runs training schools, evangelistic outreaches, and catalytic gatherings on over 500 university campuses, reaching over 50 thousand young people at our gatherings each year and many millions more through our media and music. We believe that God is not finished with America or this generation! That’s why at CR our mission is to save the lost, revive the saved, and train them all!
Back in 2011, Brad helped to pioneer Circuit Riders with a handful of YWAM'ers from Kona, HI who moved to Huntington Beach, CA with a vision for revival on university campuses in America. Now, after many years of serving as a worship pastor in local churches, we have been asked to rejoin the core leadership team at CR to help shepherd the 200+ full time staff and hundreds students in our training schools. We have a heart to disciple and develop young leaders and equip them for ministry, and the need for spiritual fathers and mothers in CR is overwhelming. At time of writing this, of the 200+ CR staff, only 14 are over the age of 30, and they are all hungry to be discipled.
Brad will primarily be pouring into the musician community here, developing worship leaders and bands for our outreach teams as well as helping CR Music to grow and expand its influence globally. Maddie will be helping to lead Brave Love Women, a CR ministry that seeks to activate women in their callings to be missional voices and leaders.
Our hearts are burning for the next generation to encounter the love of Jesus Christ and to lay down their lives to follow him. We want to lay down our lives to see this happen, but we need your help! All of the missionaries in YWAM raise 100% of their own support. As a family of five (Jonah, Asher, and Chloe), this is a massive leap of faith, but we are confident this is where the Lord is calling us and we are all in.
We are looking to build a team of Kingdom minded prayer warriors who will partner with us in seeing a generation of young people ignited with the power of the Gospel and equipped to go and make disciples of all nations! Would you prayerfully consider investing in us by becoming a monthly partner both in prayer and financial giving? We would be thrilled to have you on our team!
