YWAM Virginia Beach
DTS: Richmond / Virginia, 2014

Our Calling:

Having a heart for people, discipleship, service, prayer and worship Max and Bethany McCullough knew the Lord was leading them to join YWAM as a family back in 2014.  Both having been born and raised in the Virginia Beach area, they felt called to serve YWAM Virginia.  God has given them both hearts to serve this area and a passion to equip people from around the world to return to their own nations and cities and spread the Gospel.  They have a love for the nations but also feel called to serve from their own hometown and equip young people from around the world to reach the nations for Christ.

Why Virginia Beach?

Max and Bethany served through YWAM in Richmond for 5 years.  Still their desire, to return to their hometown and do the work of making disciples, serving, and training young people to reach the world for Christ, continued to grow.  Then in 2015 the leadership of YWAM Virginia shared a word of the Lord to pioneer a new YWAM Virginia Campus in Virginia Beach.  Immediately they both clearly felt from the Lord that they were to join the pioneering team.  In 2019 the YWAM Virginia Campus in Virginia Beach was launched; today Max, Bethany, and their children continue to serve in Virginia Beach.
