Bear and Vanessa Yarbrough
Our God Story
Bear and Vanessa came to saving faith in Jesus Christ as children. Vanessa was exposed to missions in her local Alliance church that led to her calling to serve in missions. This led her to study at Liberty University where she was immersed in the Bible. Bear was called to vocational ministry as a teenager and studied at Liberty University. After graduation, Vanessa served for 10 months with the Alliance in Mexico City and Bear started a Masters in Intercultural Studies (Missions). They were married and served at Westgate Alliance Church as the pastor of student ministries and missions mobilization for 6 years before God released them to complete a two-and-a-half year apprenticeship with the Alliance in Mexico City; being confirmed as IWs June 2018. They have three children: Belle, Merida, and Maximus.
Bear and Vanessa desire to plant reproducing churches by discipling least-reached urban professionals in Mexico City.
God has placed us in a strategic area of Mexico City where urban professionals work, live, eat, and play. This gives us an incredible opportunity to reach into this least-reached class of people in Mexico City as we seek opportunities to demonstrate and proclaim the gospel. We also have the opportunity to journey with believers in discipleship as we live on-mission together with the intention of planting reproducing churches under called and prepared national leadership.
