Hello all, and welcome - Ricco here!

If you have landed here, I am a full time staff leader within YWAM Kona (Youth With A Mission) with the Discipleship Training School (DTS) called Fire and Fragrance!  As a school we believe in championing, equipping, and training youth (GenZ and Gen Alpha)! We believe in seeing youth being wholehearted lovers of Jesus and fulfilling The Great Commission. YWAM Kona is a launching pad for young missionaries to go into all the nations of the world!  

In 2016, I began to do overseas missions, and over the past 8 years, I have been blessed to step into 6 different countries and share the Gospel of Jesus. I believe every nation, people-group, and tribe across the world deserves to hear about salvation through Jesus! 

In 2022, I did my Fire and Fragrance DTS, and began staffing in 2023. Afterwards, I felt God inviting me to partner with Him in seeing nations reach for Jesus, but not only that... but also, to see a generation of minorities being mobilized into these places trained with correct knowledge of the Bible and how to preach the Gospel of Jesus with boldness and love. I believe each culture and race is needed in this task! All are welcome; all are needed! We each carry a unique cultural sound and piece of His heart that will reach all people! Within YWAM Kona, I disciple students from many nations, but I also get to help train worship leaders. I believe that music has a specific role in fulfilling The Great Commission, and has access to not only reach people, but to activate them to love Jesus and share the Gospel. I believe the Lord is raising up a new generation of fiery lovers of Jesus... evangelist and worship leaders... from every race who will GO! 

In order to do this, as a missionary, I have to build a support team of people who will commit to praying and/or financially giving. Would you pray about partnering with me both financially and through prayer? While I am specifically building out a monthly giving team, one-time gifts are absolutely appreciated as well. Each gift is tax-deductible! Follow me, as I follow God's call for my life!

Thank you, Ricco Rainey
