An initiative training students as catalysts for a generation

YWAM has always believed that every young person has a part to play in the Great Commission.

As Commission Youth, we want to see every student believe that they have an important role in seeing this task fulfilled.
We are creating an epic week of worship, teaching, training and fun!

Meet the Team!
Jeff and Rachel 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 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.

Katrina is a passionate revivalist and adventure fanatic. She has been involved with youth ministries in Kona for several years. Katrina has a big heart to equip people to walk in relationship with Jesus and live out their purpose. She also loves playing spikeball and can’t wait to see you at camp!

Asher 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 :)
Esther  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.
Bryanna is from the Bay Area in California and has been involved in youth ministry since 2017. She loooooves to dance and loves to cook lots of food for lots of friends. As the gals’ counselor director she is excited to partner with all counselors to see each student be met by the love of God and activated into their missional calling.
Joel is originally from El Salvador and grew up in Alaska. You’ll find him near the loudest places at camp and you can ask him how in the world a Salvadorian ended up in Alaska. He loves to tell stories and ask questions. In his 7 years of camp experience, and 6 years working as a missionary, his love for youth ministry has only grown more and more. As the guys’ counselor director, he hopes to empower all counselors into their full leadership — So that every camper may have a chance of being led by “the best counselor ever”.
