Danny Lehmann lives in Hawaii with his wife Linda. He is the director of Youth With A Mission Hawaiian Islands, serves on the Global Leadership Team of YWAM International and is the overseer of YWAM’s Bible and missions schools worldwide as the Dean of the College of Christian Ministries.
While a surfer in California he was confronted with the Gospel on the beach and shortly thereafter converted to Christ. After a few months of rehabilitation and growing in the faith at Shekinah House (an outreach of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa) he began to share his faith on the beaches and streets. He assisted in planting Mission Christian Fellowship and founded The Land-a Christian community emphasizing evangelism and discipleship.
In 1980 he joined Youth With A Mission and continued to lead outreach teams to the South Pacific and Asia. He was appointed Director of YWAM Honolulu in January 1983 and Director of YWAM Hawaiian Islands in 1988.
He has written three books on evangelism: “For the Gospel’s Sake”, “Bringin ‘Em Back Alive” and “Beautiful Feet.” In addition, he has written “Before You Hit the Wall” - a book about spiritual discipline, “STOKED! -Firing Up Your Passion for God” and the latest called “The Next Big Thing” plus various Gospel tracts.
He travels extensively teaching on evangelism, the disciplined life and missions in various training schools and churches and has been a teacher at Calvary Chapel Honolulu since 1983.
