Kenna Franklin


Hi! My name is Kenna Franklin, I’m a missionary with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in Kona, Hawaii!

YWAM is a non-profit organization that helps young people know God and make God known. YWAM bases all over the world train young people in prayer and intercession, preaching, evangelizing and ultimately having a strong relationship with Jesus. After three month trainings, students are sent all over the world to different nations to preach the gospel, heal the sick and reach the lost! I did my DTS (Discipleship Training School) in 2022. During that time my heart grew towards missions and I knew I wanted to be a bigger part of the Great Commission!

During my DTS, God completely changed my life and showed me what wholehearted love really is! I got the opportunity to travel to Europe for three months where my team discipled the youth and did street evangelism. When I got home, I knew God was calling me back. I returned to YWAM to receive training to staff the next DTS and lead an outreach team!

I now have the privilege of co-leading a team of 8 to the Philippines in December 2023! My team will be traveling all through the Philippines for three months preaching the gospel at high school assemblies, discipling youth and college students, and street evangelizing! I’m so expectant for this outreach trip and cannot wait to work along side God to see people come to know Jesus in the Philippines!

I’m currently raising $4000 to be able to lead this outreach. This will cover flight tickets, housing, food, etc. I would be honored if you would prayerfully consider partnering with me to help ignite a generation into being catalysts that will touch the world.

I long to see captives liberated and every person fully alive in the love of God!
