My name is Liza Berkmans!
My heart burns to see the pain and dysfunction that our culture has normalized be eradicated. Our generation accepts broken families, abuse, and mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety as the standard. Many feel unloved and powerless because of the problems they see around them. Gen Z is plagued with identity confusion, increasing suicide rates, and overwhelming hopelessness, all coupled with a desperate search for more.
I believe that "more" is Jesus. When we are in unity with God, peace, wholeness, and joy are the new norm. We have access to constant encounter with God's perfect love! All the brokenness we see around us today can be attributed to our separation from God. But Jesus came to bring life and life abundantly! Through His death and resurrection, He made a way for us to be restored to God and His perfect love once and for all. Despite our society's current state, there is Hope! God hears the cries of His people and is willing and able to deliver them! Romans 10:14 states, "How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?"
I have committed my life to telling a generation that they always have been and always will be loved by Jesus -- that there is a perfect Kingdom that has no tears, no pain, and no poverty, and that victory over all these things was won on the cross. This generation needs to know that Jesus sees, knows, and understands them. My heart burns to see the broken leave their coping mechanisms behind and step into the abundant life found in Jesus.
As a full-time missionary with YWAM Circuit Riders, I am part of a team that gathers college, middle and high school students all over the globe. Through summer camps, discipleship groups, and both large and small gatherings, we raise up young leaders and train them to walk in a biblical lifestyle and impact the communities around them. Our mission is to save the lost, revive the saved, and train them all.
Thank you for partnering with me to see a generation saved and delivered across the nations of the Earth! It is your financial investment that allows me to be sent as a messenger of good news. I could not do this without you and am honored that we get to see the Kingdom advance together!
Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
