Who We Are Serving

Jeremy & Lindsey Bolton have been married for 13 years and have three young boys age 3, 6 and 9. They've been with YWAM since 2005 and were a part of pioneering YWAM Queenstown, New Zealand in 2014-2019. The Lord richly blessed this ministry to grow. During that time they focused 75% of their outreach teams to the nation of Papua New Guinea. Over the past eight years they've been leading different initiatives in Papua New Guinea, from pioneering the Discipleship Bible Schools in PNG, raising up local leaders, and adopting 33 languages to translate. They've been a part of raising funds for the translation work in Madang and the YWAM Liberty ship in PNG. In 2019 they moved to Kona, Hawaii to join the leadership team of End Bible Poverty Now. The UofN Kona campus also asked them to lead all initiatives for Papua New Guinea so they'll be moving to Papua New Guinea full time this January to lead the base in Madang. Madang is the most concentrated place in the world for languages without the Bible!


YWAM Madang Bible Translation & Distribution Center, along with a base to host a Discipleship Training School. The property now consists of a large vacant steel building warehouse on the waterfront. Plans are to erect a 2-story, wood framed build-out inside the existing steel shell. Facilities will include an auditorium, translation offices, recording, studio, DTS classrooms, offices, restrooms, and a cafe. Early teams will work on building the restrooms and getting septic and utilities functional, to be followed with all the interior framing and finishes.
