Drew & Caroline Parsons

on staff with HaYovel since 2015

Hi there! Drew and Caroline here.

If you’re like us, you love Israel. And not only do you want to live out your faith and make a difference for God’s Kingdom in your family, workplace and community, but you want to stay connected to Israel and make a difference there too.

But in our well-connected world, have you noticed how difficult it can be to stay connected to Israel in a positive way? There’s a lot of crazy headlines and articles that come out about what happens in the Middle East. Some we know are true. Some we know are false. But what about all those other news reports that seem so negative and leave you feeling disconnected and unsure of what is actually going on in Israel?

There are amazing miracles happening in Israel right now, and we are the very first generation to be witnessing many of them! Everyone who loves God and believes in the Bible should be able to make a difference and be closely connected to this special place our King has chosen.

We’ve been working here on the mountains of Israel for many years now and we would love to share our experience and partner together with you in bringing restoration to Israel.

A little about our story . . .

Caroline has been working with HaYovel since 2010 and Drew joined a few years after that in 2015. After serving as single staff members with HaYovel for many years, we were engaged in early 2020 and got married in Israel on August 3, 2020. We delight to continue serving together here in Israel side-by-side as husband and wife in pursuit of Israel’s restoration.

Will you join our monthly support team?
  • You can set up your monthly gift right here on this page using a credit card, debit card, or PayPal. Or you can select a single contribution if you’d like to give less often, such as an annual gift.
  • We’ll be in touch to let you know the impact you are making!
  • As you consider where to invest the money that you tithe to support ministries around the world, we know that you care very deeply about where your gift goes. You want it to make a big impact and not be just a drop in a bucket somewhere and never know for sure what it goes to or how much it accomplishes.

One of the things we like to let people know is that their gift is literally putting “boots on the ground”. You can make an impact for God’s Kingdom wherever you are at in the world, and also in Israel by having us as your hands and feet volunteering full-time, bringing greenery and life back to the mountains, and serving the Jewish people with hearts of love.

And the next time you see a news headline telling about what’s happening in Israel, you won’t be left wishing you could have a more personal, boots-on-the-ground update of what’s going on. You’ll know all about the prophecies that are coming to pass in Israel. You’ll have photos of the beautiful vibrancy that is returning to what once was barren and desolate desert. And you’ll know about the amazing reality of Jews and Christians standing with the promises of God and working together side-by-side.

Are you ready? We need you on the team!

What do we do for HaYovel?

Drew works as Digital Marketing Manager for HaYovel (otherwise known as “the tech guy” 🙂). He is passionate about sharing the good news of Israel’s restoration with the world through filming videos, capturing photos, running social media campaigns, and designing websites. Drew handles a lot of the “behind-the-scenes” and technical elements for our HaYovel events, our online store, and our marketing for The Israel Guys, a pro-Israel news channel started by HaYovel in 2020. He serves on the ground full-time in Israel and, when he’s not in the office sharing the story of Israel’s restoration, he is helping with the details and logistics necessary for hosting HaYovel’s amazing volunteers that come every year from countries around the world.

Caroline is an experienced chef and has worked on HaYovel’s kitchen team for over seven years, cooking and serving three meals a day for our volunteers and staff members. She also worked for over a year with HaYovel’s marketing team, managing social media campaigns, writing blog posts, and creating content to post online and connect people from around the world to what’s happening in Israel.

Since the birth of precious daughter, Abigail, Caroline now helps part-time in our commercial kitchen and also serves as a barista at The Heartland Cafe, our boutique coffee shop we opened in August 2022.
