Hello everyone, my name is Ben Wood and I am a missionary working with YWAM Circuit Riders in Huntington Beach, California!
Circuit Riders is a collaborative non-profit missions organization empowered by Youth With A Mission (YWAM). The heart of the Circuit Riders is to save the lost, revive the saved and train them all. We want to inspire a generation to love like Jesus!
Over the last few years my heart has been stirred for missions and reaching not only the nations but also my generation, and this is my next step into that calling. I recently completed a training school with Circuit Riders and will be moving back to become a full-time missionary with them!
I will be spending most of my time helping with the discipling and training of the DTS students and equipping them to share the gospel both in their everyday lives and wherever they go on outreach. Our primary form of outreach is our Carry the Love tour where we send teams to hundreds of universities all over the US, Europe, and even in Australia. Carry the Love tours are evangelistic tours held at college campuses in our assigned region to meet students, evangelize, worship/intercede, and train believers at each school in sharing the Gospel and leading revival. This past year during our tour we reached over 27,000 people! We have seen thousands of young people choose to follow Jesus out of these tours and have seen revival sustained by the students we equip year after year.
As staff with CR my role will be helping with discipling and training the new students, I will also help to prepare for the different outreaches we have each year. Part of training students will involve taking teams out weekly to evangelize. I will join them on at least one tour every year! In addition to training others, I will continue to be developed and grow as a leader and disciple of Jesus.
Would you pray about partnering with me both financially and in prayer? While I am specifically building out a monthly giving team, one-time gifts are also appreciated.
Thank you, Ben
