Blooming Season

By Brandt Overman

Hi everyone! Many of you have been wondering what I am doing after YWAM (Youth With A Mission). The good news is that I am still working at YWAM until the end of this year! A few months ago I had been praying and seeking the Lord regarding my calling. God showed me clearly I have a heart for both leading and teaching a group or a ministry. Soon I will be joining a program called LEAD. LEAD is a 2-1/2 year program designed to equip men and women to become ministry leaders. I will be taking a class and meeting with a cohort group once a month. The cost will be $200 every month. Here is the link for more information:

Bruce Persons is the Lead Pastor of The Table Church C&MA in Frederick, Maryland and a Chaplin of Bison Christian Fellowships at Gallaudet University.

Fire Season

These past few months was a busy season but God is good as I grew a lot spiritually. My team and I don’t have Discipleship Training School during the Spring and Summer months, however, we are focused on working around the YWAM base and deeply studying specific books of the Bible (such as Acts, Colossians, Philemon, Nahum, and 1 Thessalonians) every two or three week. I enjoy to learning about God more and I will not stop studying His Word.

My team and I attended to the gym three to five times a week. We want to stay healthy as well! I am easily motivate for going to the gym with a group instead of myself. Even since, I saw good results in good health. I felt more energy especially I am a morning person!

I was in an internship with Pastor Bruce in Bison Christian Fellowship and at The Table Church. I worked in the AV tech room, set up for worship service, and took the place of Pastor Bruce preaching when he was not available.

Personal Season

God challenged me the first six months of 2018. I learned to express my love through a serving and developing my character for my leadership roles. I want to challenge myself to read and study the Bible more. I have felt impressed to memorize more Bible verses and be able to share the gospel boldly with people.

How can you support me?

I will be relying on family, friends and others to assist supporting me financially to cover my monthly seminary educational fees and living expenses.
