Our Mission

Our heart is for discipleship. We wish to see individuals, families and communities restored. We wish to show the love of Jesus by equipping people to meet their practical needs. And as we come alongside them, we can encourage and empower them with the hope and peace that can be found in Christ. He is our Savior and Redeemer! 

Since joining Youth With a Mission in 2011, we have been determined to use our time and skills to address the issues of poverty and broken families: providing housing for the needy, empowering youth through education and the arts, and equipping individuals for employment through skills-training.

Our family moved to Jamaica in March of 2014, just outside of Montego Bay. While we enjoy collaborating with several ministries, we focus on serving in these areas:

  • We started the New Life Skills Centre to provide the underprivileged and fatherless youth with the hope and skills to pursue God’s purposes in their lives. The program currently offers training in Wood-working, Reading, Math and Bible classes, as well as private counseling/prayer and group discussions. This is a job-creation, allowing students to earn income and provide for their families.
  • We were invited to partner with Baylife Church in Montego Bay. We are committed to growing the church through fellowship, discipleship and community outreach. We serve in children's/youth ministry, lead a worship dance group, and New Life Skills Centre is working on the renovation project.
  • There is a children's home near us for ages 7 & up. We have adopted this home as our Saturday go-to spot, where we teach dance lessons, play games, and read.  Now, 4 "special-needs" kids (who would otherwise receive no schooling) join us in our home for tutoring in reading, math and sign-language as well.

Our family relies on the Lord's provision. We are grateful for the generous giving of faithful supporters, which allows us to continue to live and work in Montego Bay. We welcome and invite you to partner with our ministry.
