Kendra & Jordan

We have been serving as full-time missionaries here in Mazatlan Mexico since 2012. Below is a little more about us, although we are also proud to share with you many of the ministries we as a mission run here at YWAM Mazatlan.

Jordan serves full-time with YWAM Mazatlan leading the Student Mobilization Department. In a nutshell Jordan leads a team focused on recruiting missionaries to be trained and sent out all over the world. Over the past 5 years of his work he has played a critical role in the growth of YWAM Mazatlan; growing from training 40 missionaries per year to now over 150 yearly(185 in 2018).

The team uses modern communications strategies and mediums to mobilize people in missions; calling all who have a heart to join missions to take the jump to becoming a missionary. This is primarily outworked through recruiting for the DTS or Discipleship Training School, our introductory missions training course. They accomplish this using marketing, social media, phone calls, and whatever it takes to make it easier for people to join missions. On a global level he serves with “Mobilize Your Mission” a group committed to helping YWAM bases around the world grow in communications and mobilizing missionaries. Locally Jordan  also serves on the YWAM Mazatlan leadership team.

Kendra is blessed with the best job in the world, raising our daughter Elouisa! As well as being a full time mom she’s actively involved in the community playing on multiple local soccer teams. She also recently started a group for young mothers in the city called “MazMamás” which a weekly gathering for local moms and their little ones to build community and relationships.

As a base we are passionate about training people to know God and make Him known. We run programs designed to bring personal transformation to peoples’  lives, preparing and equipping them to become missionaries; short term and long term.

YWAM Ships Mazatlan exists to bring hope to the most isolated and least reached communities on the islands and coastlands of Mexico and the Pacific Rim. Our vessel is called The Amazing Grace, and we are excited to see how God uses it to serve those in need.

In just three days YWAM Mazatlan partners together with visiting teams to build a home for a family in need. Our vision is to not only build a home, but to also lay a foundation in the lives of these families for God to further build upon. We work together with the local church in these poor communities to connect those who’ve received a home with a group of believers within their village.

Our personal favorite, “Club de Fútbol” is a soccer ministry we run for the youth of our “colonia” or area of the city. Every week we get together with the kids, play games, do training drills, and teach the Bible in a practical way.

Carnaval is Mazatlan’s annual celebration of Mardi Gras. It is said to be the third largest in the world as each year over 400,000 people fill the city ready to party.  Our Carnaval ministry is focused on all ages. Performing arts, skate and graffiti competitions, free coffee and hair cuts, are just a few ways we are able to connect with the people, opening the door to sharing the Gospel!
