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, 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 Keith Green memorial concerts coordinated by YWAM across North America. During the event, Loren Cunningham the founder of YWAM invited everyone present to commit their lives to reach the unreached. There in the crowd, I caught a vision for the possibility of having a small part to play in one unreached people group being 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, Judy and I worked hard to mobilize, equip, send and sustain missionaries going to the least-reached people groups of the world. For a season we also served the Directors for YWAM Frontier Missions in North America.
For the last 10 years, God has been shifting our focus to mobilizing and equipping the new workers that He is raising up from the new sending nations in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In response to this, we moved our family to South East Asia. Presently we are also 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.
