Jared & Carissa Koopman


We are Jared & Carissa Koopman!

Our mission is to be a pioneering couple that labors to see the lost saved, discipled, and released into the harvest through investing locally and globally.

We are committed missionaries with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

YWAM Lancaster is a discipleship community catalyzing a movement of Jesus followers to fulfill the Great Commission. The mission is to see lives transformed, nations impacted, and eternity shifted. The four core values that YWAM Lancaster has are to prioritize the presence of God, embrace the full work of the Holy Spirit, model family through unity, and live the bold gospel message.

As our ministry is our full-time career and YWAM is a volunteer-based organization, we receive no salary. This means we are fully dependent on God to bring partners alongside us to invest in the work of ministry and make it possible for us to keep answering the call. Our desire is to build a team of ministry partners. We need to link arms with others who have the same passion to see God move in all nations and people groups.

We would like to directly invite you to join our team!

Ministry could never function through one person or even two! It was always meant to be done through a community and absolutely saturated in prayer.

Thank you for your prayers and partnership!

Jared & Carissa
