Founder and President
Steve believes that when God calls, the answer is always "Yes." In 1996, the Lord called him and his wife, Peggy, to put young people on airplanes and let him make missionaries out of them. He thrives on the mission field and loves to take youth with him.
Chief Operating Officer
Terry had a career in finance and accounting for more than 30 years. Upon retirement, he thought he would spend his time scuba diving and taking pictures, but God had other plans. Terry is now a core part of GPM's team, helping direct its growth.
Alycia wasn't sure what direction her calling would take until her father started GPM in 2001. She started as a volunteer and stepped in fulltime in 2004. With an eclectic mix of skills and responsibilities, she is the backbone of GPM.
God used a trip to Africa to turn Allison's passion for missions into a career. She has worked at GP for three years, guiding the growth of the short-term trip department. She loves seeing young people step out of their comfort zones and onto the field.
Events & Services Coordinator
Jaclyn Hooker came to Global Passion through GP's two-year internship program. After finishing the program with six months in Serbia, she returned to Napa with a heart to send others to the mission field and a passion for people to know Jesus.
Outreach Coordinator/Marketing Coordinator
While in the thick of a journalism career, God called Alli to lead a mission trip to the DR in 2010. He used that trip to prompt her to step into coordinating mission trips with GP. The unexpected turn brought her to the dream job she didn't know she had.
Northwest Regional Coordinator
Ashley was on a mission trip to Africa when God asked her to make a choice: follow Him or the world. She chose to be obedient and stepped into full-time ministry as a youth leader in Las Vegas. Her job at GPM combines her passions for youth and missions.
Southwest Regional Coordinator
Kelly's brush with missions began as a youth pastor seeking to give his students exposure to the field. He took teams with GPM for 10 years until he felt God calling him to shift his role. He is now part of bringing mission opportunities on a wider scale.
Adult Ministries Coordinator
Ingrid has long had a passion for missions, with past job titles including missions director and missions pastor. In 2013, she felt called to help more adults serve worldwide and joined Global Passion to connect that demographic to missions opportunities.
Southern California Representative
Gary has been in full-time youth ministry for 20 years. He's married with 3 beautiful children. He has taken students from the under-ground of Romania to the green hills of Northern Ireland. "My heart is to see every Christian teen answer the call to GO!"
