Hi, I am Bevin, co-founder of GlobalCAST Resources.
I have served for over 20 years as a missions trainer, mentor, and coach with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). I long to see the whole Church bring the whole Gospel to the whole world, prioritizing the most gospel–deprived people until the earth is “…filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” (Hab 2:14) I am convinced that if we are able to equip more missions leaders, trainers, mobilizers, and advocates, the result will be many more believers effectively stepping into their Great Commission roles.
I grew up as a Third Culture Kid (TCK) in Southern Africa until our family returned to the USA after 12 years of missionary service. In the early ’80’s, I attended one of the Keith Green Memorial Concerts coordinated by YWAM across North America. During the event, Loren Cunningham, founder of YWAM, invited everyone present to commit their lives to reaching the unreached. There, in the crowd, I caught a vision for the possibility of playing a small part in seeing one unreached people group represented at the wedding feast of the Lamb described in Revelation 7:9.
After University, I completed a Discipleship Training School and joined YWAM. Later, I served as a member of the leadership team of a large YWAM community in Colorado Springs. In YWAM Colorado Springs, my wife Judy and I worked hard to help mobilize, equip, send, and sustain missionaries going to the least-reached people groups of the world. For a season, we also served as Directors for YWAM Frontier Missions in North America.
For the last 15 years, God has been shifting our focus to mobilizing and equipping the new workers He is raising up from the new sending nations in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In response to this shift, we moved our family to serve with the YWAM University of the Nations Campus in Battambang, Cambodia. We are also currently investing in a YWAM leadership development initiative called the Asia Leaders Learning Community (ALLC) while continuing to equip new workers and mentor missions advocates around the world.
