Julia Hughes


Hello friends! My name is Julia Hughes, and I am currently a full-time missionary with YWAM (Youth With A Mission).

When I was a teen, the Lord placed a desire in me to do mission work, but I never thought this could be a realistic option for my life. I planned to go to college, but the Lord made it clear that I needed to go to a discipleship training school in Kona for six months. This is when my life was radically changed. I encountered the Holy Spirit and the love of God during a worship night, and I have never been the same. 

I am a full-time staff with a school called Fire and Fragrance within YWAM. Our motto is---"to know God and make Him Known." Our focus is to disciple students who are fully surrendered and sold-out lovers of Jesus. YWAM Kona is currently the largest missions-sending base in the WORLD! We desire for them to understand the character of Jesus and we disciple them through a three-month process of learning how to preach the Gospel and fall in love with God. I then lead a team on a three-month mission trip along with another staff to a specific nation so that they can live out what they learned. Sharing the love of God, and preaching the Gospel. I just returned from leading a team to Colombia, and we saw God move in BIG ways! 

I believe the Lord has a burning desire to see people in nations saved (Revelation 14:6) and I know I am called to preach the gospel in the nations (Mathew 28:19-20).

Although, I am not paid for this job! I need people to partner with me to fight for a breakthrough in this generation through prayer and finances! 

Please prayerfully consider giving to God's call in my life and reach out with any questions. I believe in partnership and community—and I would be so blessed to have you be a part of mine!
