Jim Yost, International Church Planter
Jim, along with his wife Joan, left for Irian Jaya (now called Papua), Indonesia in February of 1977 to do church planting work among the northern Sawi and Asmat tribes. God has given him and his family great success in a variety of ministries over the years. Jim’s growing burden is to catalyze disciple making movements in Papua, throughout Indonesia and beyond. Over the last ten years, 1400 churches have been planted. He is actively involved in training cross cultural workers as well as ones from newly emerging churches throughout Indonesia and South East Asia in principles of rapid multiplication. He has sent many Papuan “missionaries” out to be a blessing to the Nations!
