Currently we are a community of about 20-30 staff members at the YWAM Kona campus. However, our network of student alumni expands to over 800 people around the world! Below is a glimpse into our global leadership team.



Justin is Korean-American with a little bit of aloha. Jesus radically saved Justin's life when he joined YWAM and found a community committed to one another. He has worked with YWAM for the last ten years and is believing for another great wave of missions out of America. Justin’s heart is to see a generation live worthy of Jesus’ sacrifice, to create a space for unheard voices, and to see people of color walk in their identities and know their inheritance. 



Grant and Taylor have been in Kona since 2013 and married since 2015. They have a desire to see radical leaders raised up through discipleship and the lost saved through the goodness of the gospel. They are working alongside other leaders to develop leadership training programs that build faith, character, leadership skill, and community.



Daniel and Midian are from England and Brazil respectively. Daniel did his DTS in 2012 with Awaken in Kona and Midian did hers in England in 2015. They were married in 2017 and together have helped to oversee DTS's in both England and Kona. They both have a passion for raising up disciples of Jesus into maturity, training leaders and building family.
