CURRENT NEWS: Daniel & Katie Holmberg in Morelia, Mexico are taking a next step in reaching Mexico by developing young people, teams, and missions through YWAM Morelia with people cobbled together from all over the world!

TEQUILAS FUNDRAISER - "Bibles for Morelia": On December 7th 2016, our Evergreen community came out in full force to support this Fundraiser at Tequilas in Bergen Park! Nearly $9,000 was raised to help send Bibles to Morelia, through both food/drink proceeds, the silent auction and matching donations. If you were unable to come, you can still participate by sending checks to: Youth With a Mission Morelia, PO BOX 1427, Idaho Springs, CO 80452. Mark your check "BIBLES".

YOUTH WITH A MISSION is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), they unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.


After 11 years in YWAM, serving in Guadalajara and Costa Rica, Daniel and Katie have been in Mazatlan, Mexico since May 2014. Daniel has served as a Training Director for both YWAM Chapala, and YWAM Mazatlan. The University of the Nations is their Missions University which serves the mission of YWAM in equipping young adults to serve God full-time through their vocations. A large part of Daniel's work has been equipping, training, and discipling young leaders through UofN schools to go and transform the nations. Daniel is currently serving as the Training Director for YWAM Mazatlan. Katie has been serving as the Administrator of the YWAM Mazatlan Campus.

NEW HORIZONS: After 11 years, they are in a transitional stage of pioneering a new YWAM Campus in Morelia, Mexico. The goal is to finish preparing a team, rent a property and begin YWAM Morelia before May 2016. This past year, they have been doing Bible Seminars for pastors in Morelia and meeting with many leaders.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: The Holmberg family has had the same used vehicle for over 7 years. It has faithfully taken them back and forth from Mexico to the U.S. Now, it has over 200,000 miles on it and continues to leave them stranded on various trips. Due to Mexican law, Mexican roads and no vehicle history, it is too dangerous and almost impossible to get a vehicle in Mexico. Their goal is to raise $15,000 to buy a used Honda Odyssey. They are looking for a 2007 model with 90K miles or less. This will give them safe travel for the next 7-10 years and give them room to grow as a family and ministry. The $15k will cover the cost to buy the car, insurance and importation taxes to Mexico. Please help them drive back to Mexico! Contact them below to find out how you can give.

FAMILY PURPOSE: to be a marriage and family that models God's love and transformation through our love for each other and relationship with Him. To see individuals, communities and nations transformed through holistic development as models for multiplication.

FAMILY VISION: to be a marriage and family that reflects Christ's relationship with the Church and establish long-term missionary families and individuals throughout the communities and cities of Mexico, and to the ends of the Earth.

MISSION: Serve, Educate and Bestow...
