Jeff & Christine Herringshaw
Jeff and Christine have served with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) since 1992. They have three adult children: Natalie (married to Jon), Nick, and Nathan.
Their calling centers on raising up a new generation of leaders and missionaries through intensive discipleship. Jeff directs the YWAM training schools at YWAM Minneapolis, west of the Twin Cities in Rockford, Minnesota. They oversee the Discipleship Training School (DTS), School of Ministry Development (SOMD), English and Cross-Cultural Orientation (ECCO) school, and the Biblical Studies for Discipleship (BSD) school. Several short-term outreach teams are sent out all over the world each
year from these training programs.
Jeff and Christine’s goal continues to be that of investing in young people’s lives and sending them to the nations. Much of their time is spent providing mentoring and pastoral care for people seeking to follow the call of God on their lives. Former students from their schools are presently working full time in Russia, Peru, Azerbaijan, China, Guatemala, Kosovo, Mexico, and the Middle East to name a few. Jeff travels several weeks throughout the year teaching in other YWAM training schools, focusing on discipleship topics. His travels have taken him to more than 30 countries. Christine applies her administrative skills by overseeing the training school's admissions and offering hospitality to the guests of our ministry.
