* * Meet the team * *

JEFF AND RACHEL MATTHEIS have been on staff with YWAM Kona since 2015 and have lead a number of different schools and projects in YWAM. They have a passion to see this generation empowered and equipped to take the Gospel places that have yet to experience Jesus! They are super fun & have the cutest baby boy, Rees. Jeff also really likes coffee ☕️
FRENCHIE GAMERO is a wild, surfing, totally surrendered leader who has been faithful serving YWAM and the Big Island since 2017. Currently helping lead Messengers, Frenchie's heart cry is for the lost to know Jesus. Frenchie has spearheaded many local outreaches and movements and now facilitates multiple such as Skate Night and Kosraen Youth.
ESTHER STEVENSON currently serves with Messengers & YWAM Kona’s Media & Mobilization team. An international, YWAM-kid gal, Esther’s dream is to see the youth of the nations come to know who they are in Christ. Esther would rather choose joy than any other human emotion & loves ice cream even though she’s lactose intolerant.
ASHER BYRD is the youngest leader on the team. He has grown up in YWAM since the womb. He has a huge heart to see his generation set ablaze for Jesus, and to see high schoolers equipped and empowered to use their voices. Anointed with a voice to lead and a heart to serve, Asher is stoked for this summer. Come to camp, he’ll be your friend :)
