Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Hello Church Family!
Our names are Matt & Shari Devine. We have 3 kids: Julia is 15 years old and loves acting, baking, and has always been an entrepreneur at heart. Ryan is 14 and loves to bladesmith, learn Krav Maga, and performs close-up magic tricks. Arabella is 9 years old and loves ballet, guitar, piano, and playing with friends. Shari and I have been married for 18 adventurous years! We were born and raised in Evansville and attended The Gathering the last few years we lived there, where we served as musicians in the worship band.

In 2016, the Lord led our family, including our kids, in Holy Spirit-led ministry by showing us who to talk to and pray for as we went throughout our day.

In 2018, the Lord called our family to attend a discipleship training school in Colorado Springs, CO. After completing our 3-month training and a 3-month mission trip to Macedonia, we prayerfully decided to join YWAM as Local Evangelism Team Leaders!

It continues to be an amazing adventure of seeing God move miraculously on the streets, the Rescue Mission, Teen Challenge, and with the groups of students we train to reach the margins of society.

Every week, we lead teams of young missionaries to share Jesus with the hurting and hopeless in Colorado Springs as the main focus of our full-time position

Our heart is to reach the lost while demonstrating the power & love of God through healing, prophetic words of encouragement, giving hope, our testimony, and sharing the Gospel empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Our vision is to bring hope to the lost, the overlooked, and the unreached by showing the power & love of Jesus on the streets; to mobilize, equip, and send missionaries to reach the unreached nations and in the process, reach this nation.

How you can help:
As missionaries with YWAM, we do not receive a salary, instead we have the privilege of building a team of partners (individuals and churches) to see transformed lives among the least reached. We are committed to keeping you informed on what God is doing in Colorado Springs and the least reached nations through monthly emailed newsletters and staying connected with you. Would you prayerfully consider being a part of the answer for the marginalized by supporting us monthly?
