Reaching Out

Blessings from Baguio City, Philippines!

Our Discipleship Training School has gone though 10 Lecture weeks already! "Bible Interpretation, Godly Relationships, Biblical World-View, Forgiveness, Plumb-line, Father Heart of God, Discipleship, Worship, Spiritual Warfare, and Missions. And we are on our last week of class and preparation for our 3 month outreach here in the Philippines. The last few weeks have been very busy with assignments,lectures,studies,preparation,meetings,writing/recording. But God has been so faithful and amazing in giving, in strength, and also in applying so many new teachings for my life.

About 2 weeks ago I was truly inspired to compose a song that was personal, yet could relate with many people, and also to use this as a fundraiser for my mission outreach on October 1oth the the Northern Philippine Mountains. So, thankfully my song "James" came to be real, and decided to record it with what I have. The vocal ideas was stuck in my mind for days, and then finally finished writing it musically. This was the first time to record a song with all 6 tracks on an iphone and then to mix/master it on my laptop. Amazingly everything went so smooth and better than expected! "Thank you Lord!" One of the students here "Judy" from China, helped in doing back up Vocals and did a great Job! I played the acoustic guitar,vocals, lead guitar line, and beatbox/drum. So Blessed how it turned out, Hope you can listen, and enjoy it! :)

  • As we prepare for outreach for 3 months, I please ask for much needed PRAYER!
  • All the preparation, practice, the fund raising we can do so we can all go.
  • For God to lead the team, and our hearts to be transformed continually in giving/serving others.
  • For the Visa I need to stay in the philippines another 2 months is 200.00
  • For the funds to come in that are due October 10th for me to go, 400.00
And most of all, To bring his people into the Kingdom sharing the Love and Truth of The Gospel.

Thank you all so much for your Support and Prayers.
Blessings! Jordan Scarbrough.

The Fathers Heart.

It's been almost 3 months since first arriving in The Philippines following His voice. 3 months of amazing wonders, and true miracles before my eyes to really start realizing how big God the Father we serve truly is.. Listening to his voice that is omnipresent in our lives, has been the biggest growth for me. He is always speaking truth and wisdom for us all to hear, and for us to step out with faith and Obey. In Our community, or to the ends of the earth.

Our Discipleship Training School is now getting ready for the outreach portion in the Philippines. I Found out that i'm going to the Northern part of the island mainly mountains, villages, and Rice terraces, with our team of 5 students and 1-2 leaders. It Will be a huge, and exciting experience being on the move constantly and evangelizing 24/7 in villages of a foreign country. And being the only American in the group... - I will be asked to Preach/Speak very often. -
- Thank you Lord, for Truly stretching my faith/comfort, and teaching obedience, whatever you have planned for the future.... I Will Follow. :)

I Continue to ask for support, and all your prayers! Thank you all so much for everything, i love sharing the stories and the experiences together how God is working in the ministry everywhere. Always blessed hearing whats going on in your lives, Please Let me know what I can pray for??

Hello! From “YWAM” Baguio City, Philippines.

This is Jordan Scarbrough, and I’m currently in Discipleship Training School in The Philippines. Being discipled and receiving Missionary Training through the Discipleship Training School (DTS) in the University Of Nations Credited College. The DTS was designed to help young people catch hold of God’s vision for their lives, to encourage them that they can do great things with God right now. It is part of “Youth With A Mission “(YWAM) in Baguio City, Philippines Vision. The DTS is dedicated to reaching my generation and equipping us to fulfill God’s destiny about our lives. I think it’s an amazing way to hands on learn how to share the gospel, learn deeply about who God who is, and to see my life changed.

Every year, YWAM International sends out thousands of people (pre-teen to retired) all over the world on short-term mission trips. YWAM begun with the vision of waves of young people crashing onto the shores of other nations, ministering to the broken-hearted and witnessing to people about Jesus. YWAM seeks to disciple young people, so they can bring the kingdom of God to the rest of the world. We are getting to do things together with children in orphanages, pray with people on the streets, teach morals to youth, and in local high schools, Lead worship, and even give out shoes to needy kids! (TOMS) And also, currently learning dances, dramas, and how to freely evangelize. This is a cultural experience in understanding God’s heart for another city/country, while also training me to be more influential with my peers when I come home. Our training has begun in Baguio City, Northern Philippines.

After 12 weeks of training, we’ll leave for an outreach mission for 9 weeks. Last week I owed 25,000 Pesos still for schooling tuition fees ($600.00) American. And with 50 dollars in my bank account… We agreed for a week of fasting and interceding in deep prayer to see what to do next. A week later, Monday morning the 22nd I received the shocking news that someone in the Philippine’s anonymously paid my tuition IN FULL. Such a HUGE Blessing. An answered prayer! And a major Faith-Building experience. But with that, I have also learned that in the book of James, “Faith without Works is Dead.” So I am working hard to raise the 25,000-40,000 Pilipino Pesos, ($800.00 - $1,000) American, for the cost of my outreach fees coming up soon.

- I will be recording an Acoustic Demo CD with my I/phone-Mac set up, and will try and raise any funds and donations towards outreach. Because I know that I cant do this by myself, I am asking you to be apart of my support team. Would you pray about giving financially towards my mission? I am also looking for any prayer warriors out there during these next few months being here. Please let me know if you can give or pray!

I am happy to update you on the amazing things God is doing through the ministry here. And I’d love to hear from you, you can E-mail me:

- Thank you for your prayers and support. -

Blessings from The Philippines!

God Will Provide Our Needs.

Blessings From Baguio City, Philippines!

The first 3 weeks being here in YWAM DTS have been truly amazing!
Learning so much, and continually challenged daily in my Faith.
So Thankful and Blessed to be here being discipled.
Building each other up, Devotion. Prayer. Worship. Constant growth. God's provided!

  • First Week, we arrived here we settled in and got used to the daily schedule and routine of how the base is run.
  • Second Week, Lecture started with "Bible Interpretation" - Which was very intense and great knowledge to use in teaching/preaching verse by verse interpretation on the Bible.
  • Third Week, Lecture was on "Godly Relationships" - which was focused on Marriage, pretty deep study on healthy Relationships/Marriage, Thank you Lord!! :) haha
  • Fourth Week, Lecture is now on "Biblical World View" - Which is mainly on being Mindful of our thoughts, Conformed & Transformed to God's Thinking & Likeness. Deep!

> For a week we are going to Fast and Pray for the Financial funds for us all to stay in DTS.. Most the students here, Including Me, don't have all the funds in to finish the schooling. The Deadline to have our tuition in is next week... We need God to step in BIG, and anyone to help us where we are at. Praying diligently for ideas, we will use our given talents and abilities to try and raise Funds for our schooling this week. The rest is up to God.

- Please be praying for us, and that we will have all our needs for our Tuition taken care of.

The rest is up to God. :) He Will provide.
Blessing, and Love to you all!

Discipleship Training School. YWAM

Yes, it's truly amazing seeing the Spirit work. 2 weeks ago I arrived to Baguio City, A Discipleship Training School In YWAM "Youth With A Mission" on the north island of the Philippines. Something that was so Spirit led I can't even describe how God worked out all the details. Not my plan at all, but heard the Lord so strongly telling me to GO to learn/grow.. So in obedience I have been here for 2 weeks now. Last week was our first full weak of lectures on "Bible Hermeneutics" - on Narratives=Book of Judges, Hebrew Poetry=psalms, and Paul's epistles=Philippians and tons of extra assignments, very challenging.. But am so humbled God put me in this place.. I have never grown so much in my Faith, knowledge, and understanding God's Calling for me to be in the Ministry. Leading worship, Leading Bible Studies, Preaching, ext... "God is Truly Stretching me" :)

The plan of now is, to be in the DTS through YWAM in Baguio City, Philippines for 3 months, then will be sent on a 3 month outreach mission somewhere in central Asia. "Still praying for Locations" This has been truly testing my Faith. I had a little over 2000 in my bank account - DTS schooling is 1650. And the outreach mission will be another 1500-2000 in 3 months. And it will go past December into January ( my original plane ticket for december 13 to be home for Christmas will be wasted)
- not exactly knowing when/how getting back to the U.S -
But God is showing me to truly obey and completely trust he will provide. :) Showing me Blessing after Blessing.

Life of Missions, Thank you Lord!
And everyone who praying, and supporting the Ministry.

Training and Learning

July 5th here in Surigao City, Philippines!

The Past 3 weeks have been a blessing! and God has opened so many doors for ministry and to grow in his word. From blessing a village with clean water for drinking, to recording/mastering a CD for our Friend Emmon's YWAM DTS Missions fund, God is using me in ways I didn't expect were possible. That is what has been overtaking my heart to learn in the ministry, and an encouragement to give God the Glory.

Now settled in Surigao "our home" for the next 5 1/2 months we get to branch out in this community and Link with the Oconnors ongoing ministries. This full week we are training in a TCE "Teaching Children Effectively" course from 8am to 5pm Mon-Fri to better our understanding and knowledge on how to lead children to Christ. An awesome and challenging course that's pushing our faith.

Last night we had a TLW "True Love Waits" training workshop to understand and be equipped with the knowledge/material for teaching on impurity,broken hearts, premarital sex, and dysfunctional family's.. And how God can Save us from this and direct our lives in a pure way,
- Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are those who are pure in heart, for they will see God" -

It has amazed me to now be across the world and strongly feel the spirit moving, the hospitality has blown me away.. Family's that have nothing prepare what they have for "us" their guests. Worship that lasts hours, people that have nothing have faith God will provide everything they need. Its definitely working on my heart, teaching me hospitality and Spirit-filled Faith.

Thank you! all my Family and Friends for the Prayer and support! It's impacting my heart and helping my spiritual growth exponentially! I Love you all and will keep you updated on upcoming events as much as possible. Blessings!!

Mission Statement

I've been called to serve and share the love of Christ with anyone and everyone, including the people of the Philippines and surrounding areas using my musical abilities and verse-by-verse teaching to encourage struggling believers. The mission is a response to the need for getting outside of my comfort zone, all the while trusting that God will provide my spiritual and physical needs. This is not just a trip; it is the beginning of a new way of life as a Musicianary. I want to witness to those who have suffered pain and addiction on a personal level. My plan is to leave the country for six months and see where God leads me from there.
