Fred Markert

After becoming a Christian in Berlin, Germany in 1973, Fred pastored a church of young people involved in Bible smuggling and ministry to the underground church of communist Eastern Europe. He graduated from Christ For The Nations Institute in Dallas, TX in 1977, and then joined Youth With A Mission.

Fred's ministry has taken him to 150 countries over the past 30 years and allowed him to collaborate on projects with a wide array of churches, denominations, mission agencies, universities and non-profit organizations worldwide.

Today Fred leads Youth With A Mission Network for Strategic Initiatives (YWAM NSI), an international networking team based in Colorado Springs which identifies and coordinates large-scale ventures, and the Terra Nova Project (TNP), also in Colorado Springs, which integrates local churches, church networks, international ministries, and YWAM locations in order to focus coordinated effort into the seven strategic initiative regions of the world.
