Art and Ellen Sanborn

Base Directors

Art and Ellen Sanborn have been missionaries with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) since 1980. Art’s book, Walking Miracle, chronicles dozens of miracles they have witnessed, including Art’s miraculous recovery after a body-surfing accident that left him a quadriplegic. They have planted 12 churches in Thailand, led 65 outreaches and directed 29 YWAM and SMMI training schools. They have also produced a number of evangelistic CD’s and Broadway style musicals. They have a passion for equipping and releasing long term missionaries and Christian performing artists to impact the world for Christ!

Sean and Anne Sanborn

Directors of Training and Outreach Teams

 Sean & Anne Sanborn were YWAM missionaries in ChiangMai Thailand for 12 years doing Church planting. Sean’s book Missionary Kid Chronicles: Naga Trilogy: Rescue is about a missionary kid learning to hear God’s voice. Their passion is to train and equip young men and women as missionaries, worshippers and Church planters, so that every Tribe, Nation (people group) and Tongue will worship Jesus now and in the age to come. They homeschool their two children.
