Our fundraising effort for January involves helping a former BF member, Bryant Pitts, as he continues to serve as a part of YWAM. You can read all about Bryant below. Follow the likes if you would like to support him further.
Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is the largest international and interdenominational missionary sending organization. Begun in 1960, it has since grown in the past 60 years to train over 50,000 short term workers each year. The last estimate of long-term full-time staff in YWAM averaged 35,000 globally, with missionaries present in over 190 nations. Training is held in over 60 languages worldwide, training believers in various aspects of discipleship, worldview and Biblical studies, to name a few. YWAM is focused on evangelism, training and mercy ministries. YWAM’s primary focus has been the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), faithfully sharing the gospel with those who do not know Christ. YWAM also trains those who come to know Christ or already do, and serves local peoples through mercy ministries.
YWAM’s training arm is the University of the Nations. They use a unique modular style education that trains students in a particular field of study, with opportunities for direct application of knowledge through field assignments/short term outreaches. These often lead to longer term commitments in various nations.
We are excited to introduce Bryant Pitts! Bryant has been on staff with YWAM for over a year in Salem, OR working and preaching with a ministry called Gospel Focus Ministries. He has also had the privilege of leading mission trips to Albania and teaching at YWAM’s “Discipleship Training School”. We have the unique opportunity to hear from him in person Sunday, January 16 at church, so take the time to chat with him before or after service!
