Hi! I’m Danyelle Madden and I am a twenty seven year old missionary with Youth With a Mission(YWAM) in the Middle East!
The heart of YWAM in the Middle East is to be obedient to Jesus’ Great Commission to make disciples of all people groups and nations. We work to see the nations love like Jesus.
I am a graduate of the Discipleship Training School (DTS) at YWAM Yosemite. I have been completely transformed by the love of Jesus and my heart is to see the Muslim world brought into their place in God’s kingdom. Since Yosemite, I’ve been following the calling Jesus gave me to follow him into the hardest and darkest places to see the light of the world break through with salvation.
I am currently wrapping up four solid months of ministry and training with Circuit Riders and the Organic Agriculture Trainers Seminar (OATS) with YWAM Herrnhut, Germany. I have accepted a wonderful and lovely opportunity to briefly join YWAM Amsterdam and other YWAM bases in Europe so that I can rest from the past four months of intensive ministry and to cast a vision for the future.
Here at YWAM Amsterdam, I am re-learning what rest looks like. I am taking time and space to seek the Lord and hear his voice. I am strategizing how to best use the summer to connect my training with OATS to practical ministry application. I am gaining wisdom and insight on how to best move forward into full time ministry in the Middle East later this year.
This is my fifth year serving short-term in the Middle East and I fully expect to now continue full-time for many years to come. I am committed to staffing in the Levantine region of the Middle East with a team that educates women and children, and meets the immediate and long term food security needs of our refugee neighbors. I’m also excited to use my extensive background in music to enrich children's lives and education with individual and group music classes in our local community center. We believe that through the power of the gospel, we will see the nations healed and loving like Jesus!
