Jeff and Tracy Van Veen have been serving with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Internationally since 2007. Their YWAM-specific service began in Kona Hawaii until the end of 2011. Subsequently they moved into community development and aquaponic food production/water technologies in mainly the Caribbean, Micronesian and Central/South American
In 2016 they moved to Europe to work with refugee response and integration, supporting various YWAM centres that were responding to the massive influx of refugees into the region. Their hubs of YWAM accountability remain with Kona, Hawaii (connecting with the Founders/core of YWAM globally) and Berlin, Germany (where they have been running Discipleship & Bible training programs, Bible distribution initiatives and other evangelistic ministries in Berlin
and across Europe).
Undergirding these diverse ministries is a firm belief that God is awakening and equipping His bride the church to be a bright light in a dark world — pointing people to encounters with Jesus in their day-to-day lives. They are extremely grateful for their partnership with Whistler Community Church and look forward to continually connecting with and serving the WCC family.
