Meet The Team
After more than 30 years, YWAM-Madison continues to develop, grow, and follow the Lord wherever He leads. We have a team of over 35 staff members from all over the world spanning the ages of newborn to "seventy-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 to encompass many more things. However, we continue to embrace university ministry, are passionate about training and sending, and love to see the various spheres of society impacted by the Kingdom of God and Biblical truths."
