Mike and Inga Stephenson serve with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) Furnace, based at Faith Bible College in Tauranga.
As volunteers, they pastorally care for staff and students, teach Kairos and in other schools, serve in administration/registrar, and lead ‘’Mission Adventures” (outreaches for High School teams), among other things. Their roles are unpaid and they would love to have more people support them financially as they follow God’s call, to disciple young people into mission- both in NZ and overseas.
YWAM Furnace focus is to “Train, Equip and Send.” Prayer is central to all (we partner with house of prayer) as we train people for lifelong mission. We run DTS, various seminars, prayer and leaders internships as well as higher-level schools, a yacht ministry in Fiji, prayer room and mission adventures. Staff serve in community outreaches locally and we now also have a ship= YWAM KOHA which is being developed to serve the needy in the Pacific with free medical /dental services in the near future.
