Converge Stories Podcast


Welcome to YWAM Converge where we know that everyone has a calling; following the crowd will not get you there, and a missional internship is the best way to discover your purpose. Hear testimonies of students, missional leaders, and donors engaged in sending a new generation of missionaries. YWAM Converge is part of Youth With A Mission, an international, multi-denominational movement of people who follow Jesus and want to know God and make him known.

Ryan started out as a YWAM missionary. He attended the YWAM training course John Henry led in 2010 called the School of University Ministries & Missions. For his field assignment he and his new wife, Crystal, traveled for 11 months visiting 10 countries gathering video footage and doing interviews around the world for a documentary on Student Mobilization. Ryan also filmed all 50 of the videos for the Converge pre-departure lessons, which every intern completes before traveling to serve a missional organization somewhere in the world.

Ryan served for several years at YWAM Salem, OR where he developed some of the tools to start a consulting agency called Upswing Strategies, helping organizations create a clear plan for growth and reach more people who will invest in their mission.
