YWAM Converge Podcast

We connect interns to missional organizations.


Each week we talk with guests about God’s character and nature and how God calls us to be his witnesses in every area of influence. In addition to missional leaders around the world, we invite project hosts for Converge internships and former interns to hear their stories. You can be his witnesses through your career, at your dinner table, across the globe, and in all your relationships right where you are. This weekly show is hosted by Delon Torres and John Henry, director of the Youth With A Mission Converge Program Office in Ocean City, NJ.
