Serving at YWAM Kona
We arrived in Kona in July 2013, leaving behind family, friends, church, job, house, etc in Lynden, WA. It wasn’t an easy decision – the comfortable choice would have been the status quo, but we knew God was tugging at our hearts to return to YWAM (Youth With A Mission). Our primary focus here at the Kona base is to serve the campus in the area of finance and stewardship, both operationally and with the various training schools that are run by YWAM Kona year round.

Paul serves as a finance trainer for the campus, and sits on the Finance Working Group and CFO teams. His role is one of stewarding YWAM resources. By being faithful stewards in the area of finance, a subject Jesus talked about a lot, the campus and its program are becoming even more fruitful. And the end result is more missionaries, better outreaches, and a greater impact on the mission field. We love being involved with YWAM Kona; to see young people come and be discipled during their Kona lecture phase. Then, to see these same young people go out into the nations, and proclaim the good news of Jesus to a lost and hurting world.
We are super-blessed by our 4 amazing young men! Our mission is to disciple them into young warriors for the Lord. Our eldest son, Josiah is 18, now in college. Our middle son, Austin is 16, Kyle is 12 and Tre is 6. Life with 4 boys is never dull or quiet, that is for sure! We are blessed to watch our boys growing up in a “missions community”, seeing God at work, and we are excited to see how God shapes and moulds our boys as they grow up into young men.
