Meet The Team
After more than 30 years, YWAM-Madison continues to grow in staff, influence, and areas of ministry. Our team is 85 strong and counting! We come from all over the world and span the ages of newborn to “sixty-something.”
Warren and Gayle Keapproth led a small team to establish YWAM Madison in 1986 to meet the spiritual needs of university students, and to encourage, engage, and equip students to serve a needy world when they return to their home countries and jobs. Since then, the vision of YWAM Madison has grown and continues to embrace the individual callings and passions of those who join us.
