Jeff and Christine have served with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) since 1992. They have three adult children: Natalie (married to Jon), Nick, and Nathan (married to Amy). They also have four grandchildren.
Based out of the YWAM Minneapolis ministry center, Jeff and Christine’s goal continues to be that of investing in young people’s lives and sending them into every sphere of culture as agents of Godly change. Much of their time is spent providing mentoring, coaching and pastoral care for young people seeking to follow the call of God on their lives. Former students from the training programs they have led are presently working full time in places like Peru, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Colombia, Guatemala, India, Thailand, Mexico, the Middle East, the US and Canada as workers for the Lord’s kingdom. Jeff travels several weeks throughout the year teaching in other YWAM training schools, focusing on discipleship topics. His travels have taken him to more than 30 countries. Christine provides care for their two youngest grandsons and applies her administrative skills when she can to serve the YWAM Minneapolis ministries.
As part of raising up a new generation of leaders and missionaries through teaching, coaching and discipleship, they also desire to empower former YWAM staff and students now in the secular work force to live out their missional calling. They are working to do this through one-on-one meetings and developing transitional training and support programs. Jeff also writes a weekly blog to encourage and challenge readers in their daily choices to follow and serve Jesus. https://choosethisday.blog
