OUR ELDERS

 

We are very grateful for this wonderful group of elders who all serve us in various ways with their wisdom and care for the people and teams in Central Europe.


AL AKIMOFF

We both started in YWAM as teenagers in 1964 /1966 in YWAM. We currently lead YWAM Slavic Ministries in Salem, Oregon. We still spend around half the year on the road, mostly in Eastern and Central Europe.

How are you connected with YWAM CE?
In 1973 we started YWAM Slavic Ministries as a ministry to reach out to that part of the world in discipleship and evangelism. Doors quickly opened all over Central Europe, particularly Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Yugoslavia. We trained teams and sent them out of our base in Austria.

What is on your heart for YWAM CE?
We continue to have a heart for Central Europe and particularly seeing new bases and ministries raised up. Our hearts are into apostolic pioneering and we want to see more training and releasing in that area.

What would you like to offer to our region?
We hope that our years of experience, relationships and love for these countries can be translated into encouragement, help and training for a whole new generation to be released all over Central Europe.

LISA WHITAKER

I live in New Jersey and have been with YWAM since 1992.

How are you connected with YWAM CE?

In 1995 I moved to Budapest, Hungary to work with Maureen Menard giving leadership to the first Collaborative DTS Project focused on the Balkans, Central Asia and Turkey. From 1998-2007 I helped to lead DTSs in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. I have been involved in pioneering new DTSs, teaching in schools, doing staff training and being involved with church planting.

What is on your heart for YWAM CE?

My heart for Central Europe is to see the DTSs serve one another and offer quality schools to the peoples of Central Europe as well as those outside of the region who have a heart to come to the DTSs there. I would also like to see YWAM’s relationship with the local church – both Protestant and Catholic be strengthened.

What would you like to offer to our region?

I want to be a support to those ministering in the region and to continue relationship with both staff and locals that I have had over the years. I am open to teaching, doing staff training, connecting with local groups, helping with retreats and/or serving in ways that will strengthen staff.
