Liz Bilkert, Chair

Why YHM?
In YHM, you travel to hear and tell stories - just like Jesus' time of ministry.

Words to live by....
"The true monastic goes through life with a barefoot soul - alert, awake, thankful, and never quite at home"

Craziest thing I've ever done...
crossed paths with a hippo on a safari

I want to .... before I die.
Spend the day in an Egyptian spice market.

It bothers me when...
my feet are covered when I sleep.


Nathaniel Mullins, Administrator

Why YHM?
I love talking to people about what they believe and sharing with them why I love Jesus. YHM attracts me because of the intensive evangelism.

Words to live by:
Rejoice always. Pray continually. Give thanks in all circumstances. Test everything - hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.

Craziest thing I have ever done....
held my breath for over five minutes.

I want to ..... before I die.
memorize Psalm 119

It bothers me when....
I can't think of something more creative than this.


David Ko, Orientation Coordinator

WhyYHM?
God has endowed each individual with unique gifts and experiences. I enjoy taking part in God's kingdom by affirming people in the confidence that their story is interwoven in God's much larger narrative.

Words to live by:
"I don't know where I am going, but I know who I'm going with" - Matthew Ference; "We don't know who discovered waters, but we know it wasn't a fish" - John Culkin; "The best way to predict the future is to invent it" - Allen Kay; and my personal favorite, "Just do you."

Craziest thing I have ever done...
Asked people I didn't know if I could pray for them on the spot. (Hopefully this "crazy" thing continues to become more normal. What is normal?!?)

I want to ..... before I die.
I want to repent before I die. And play in a NHL game, at least for a few seconds, and why not for the Flyers?

It bothers me when...
there is no ketchup.


Marcus Craig, Travel Coordinator

Why YHM?
YHM gives so many opportunities to meet and care for many different kinds of people. It's basically the best.

Words to live by....
Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry.

Craziest thing I've done....
Once I went two nights without flossing.

I want to .... before I die.
Visit every MLB park

It bothers me when:
I lose my phone or wallet, which is often.


Alyssa Overturf, Travel Coordinator

Why YHM?
YHM is such an incredible opportunity to learn what it means for evangelism to become a lifestyle rather than just an aspect of short-term missions. Learning how to build deep, meaningful relationships and to be bold for Christ is an incredible journey that I am blessed to be a part of.

Words to live by....
Don't take yourself too seriously. God is in control.

Craziest thing I've done:
Bungee jumped off a 265 ft bridge in Costa Rica.

I want to .... before I die.
Backpack South America and hike the Inca trail to Macchu Picchu.

It bothers me when....
People read over my shoulder - not really sure why because I do that to other people, but it drives me nuts!


Kim Holder, Special Projects Coordinator

Why YHM?
Because I love people, love adventure, and love Jesus. YHM is pretty rad.

Words to live by...
All I need is a beauty and a beat. OR Just dance.... it'll be ok! dadadudu

Craziest thing I've done:
YHM

I want to .... before I die.
Swim with dolphins and penguins in the deep blue sea

It bothers me when...
I have to fill out forms.


Grace Hong, Fundraising Coordinator

Why YHM?
Because you get to engage in fellowship and relational evangelism with the backpackers in Europe. Also, you get to make copious amounts of pancakes while working at the hostel.

Words to live by...
Follow Jesus.

Craziest thing I've done:
Hitchhiked to the beach in Europe :)

I want to ..... before I die.
Backpack through Europe one more time.

It bothers me when....
People fidget (tap their pencils, tap their shoes, etc.)
