Season of life

Update on the University of the Nations Maritime Academy During the last few weeks of 2018, leading up to New Years, I was really pushing to see what God had envisioned for 2019.  This year will definitely have a different flavor to the one we just saw. In 2018, we traveled around the world (twice), planting seeds about more efficiently equipping those called to serve the forgotten people […]

Seeing the fruit

“When predictability is high, impact is low. In other words, when the audience thinks they know what you’re going to say, and you go ahead and say it, your words make very little impact. On the other hand, when an audience is surprised or intrigued, they will think long and hard about what they’ve heard…. […]

I am still The Clueless Disciple

Not knowing what the next step is, is honestly, stressful. “When I first heard The Lord speak to me about going into the mission field, I wanted to know exactly what His long-term plans were.  My desire to understand what was in store for me soon blinded me from His desire for spontaneity.  It took […]

Quick Updates

Based off of my current busyness with serving as Purser on the s/y Next Wave, co-founding new training programs through YWAM’s University of the Nations for the ships ministries: brining hope and healing to the forgotten coastlines and island of the world, and coordinating and staffing the School of Navigation and Seamanship and the Bluewater (Sailing) Discipleship Training School (DTS), I have […]

Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

I can’t do it.  All the responsibilities, being a good influence, always practicing patience, and living a life that always looks good from a ministry perspective.  It is hard.  My past still looms in my mind.  What I could have been follows me.  What would my life be like if I would have stayed on […]

Professor Jordan?

For some people it is kind of unclear or confusing what I do as a Missionary with Youth with a Mission (YWAM).   I have heard things like, “He travels a lot!” or “Sailing? What does that have to do with being a missionary?” all as a result of not knowing what my current role […]

A full schedule

Life is complicated, busy, and there are too many opportunities to even think about merely doing one!  I absolutely love what I am doing, and it helps that I have an amazing boss; Jesus! As mentioned below, I am pretty busy, but there are always things that I would still love to do, but there […]

I’m back!

Twenty-nine days at sea really makes you appreciate the life of a landlubber. The sweet feel of stable ground beneath your feet.  The plethora of food options.  The aroma of nature. These everyday things can be sorely missed when you are isolated on a ship in the middle of the ocean!   The YWAM Ship, […]

Serving God in the Pacific

The ways God works never ceases to amaze me.  He orchestrated the YWAM ship the Pacific Hope to be moved to the Caribbean months ago, and now there is a huge need for hurricane relief in the same area where ship is going. Through the continuation of developing the new ministry for training missionaries to […]
