About the Author

Stephen met Rite on a DTS/SOE in England in 1977 (Stephen’s home nation). They married two years later and lived in British Columbia, Canada, where Rite had grown up. In 1980 they rejoined YWAM in Scotland where they stayed for the next 26 years. Stephen was a national leader for 15 years and Rite established a preschool and ran training seminars for preschool teachers in many nations. In 1993 they focused on leadership development, Stephen earning his master’s degree in Leadership Studies at Azusa Pacific University. Since then the LDC (six-week leadership development course) has been established all around the world. They moved to Spain in 2006 to pioneer a leadership retreat center. Stephen is still involved in the leadership of YWAM Europe. They have three adult children.

Let me illustrate with a YWAM story.

Enjoying Silence?

In order to come to a place of silence and experience God’s presence, I have found it necessary to deal with the noise in my outer and inner life. I need to know how to allow that noise to either become a part of the background or to allow it to become transformational through the surfacing and dealing of those inner thoughts and feelings.
