Hi! My name is Beth and I am full time staff with the YWAM base in Kona!
I completed a Discipleship Training School with YWAM in 2019. My D DT) gave me the amazing opportunity to serve in the Himalayas for 3 months and Peru for 1 month. After completing my DTS, I went back home and completed a Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design. During my years at University, the Lord continued to speak about making Him famous in the nations and kept the door open for me to serve with YWAM.
YWAM's heart is to "know God and make God known." I serve with a school called "Fire and Fragrance" on the YWAM base: as the name suggests, we live to follow God with zeal and passion, and live a life that is a fragrant offering to Him. F&F Discipleship Training Schools equip young Christ followers to know God intimately through the word and seeking God face-to-face during the lecture phase. The DTS also equips students to then share their faith in the nations for a 3-month outreach.
As staff, I have the incredible privilege of leading DTS students through their school. This process starts during staff training (Leadership Track) that runs in the summer. This track equips staff to become leaders who are, first and foremost, after the heart of God. Staff training includes leading commission camp, contending regularly for the nations, being poured into by our school leaders, and serving campus needs.
As DTS staff, I get to disciple young women through their lecture and outreach phases. This takes the form of supporting a room of girls in Kona while they learn and explore more about who Jesus is. I also have the privilege of disciplining/leading a small team to the nations during the 3-month outreach portion.
It is an extreme honor to go into the nations and declare the name of Jesus to those who may have never heard it before. I consider it an even bigger honor to be trusted with a group of young women who are hungry to get closer to the Lord. DTS changed my life and I have seen is transform so many others lives'.
I would be honored if you would pray about partnering with me financially as I serve as YWAM staff.
