Meet the Caudills
Andrew and Taylor have been serving part time through Live Global since 2015, and full time since July 2018. Andrew and Taylor have been married since June 2016 and have one son, Elijah, who was born in August 2017.
Andrew and Taylor serve national believers in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America. (Hopefully they’ll begin to partner with believers in Australia and North America soon also!) They use the platform Live Global (liveglobal.org) to help build partnerships and communicate updates and needs. Live Global is a non-profit organization that Andrew formed and leads. The organization connects national believers who are already doing effective ministry in their cultures to a partnership with American believers and churches for the sake of the gospel.
The Americans are there to encourage the nationals, pray for them and their ministries, advocate for them, serve them, and help them get what they say they need to do their ministry better (books, education, money, buildings, gospel tracts, Bibles, etc.). They desire that the Lord would build more partnerships, engage more millennials in the great commission, and do this through the platform of Live Global. They desire ultimately that God would reach the ends of the Earth with the gospel, and they believe that he will largely use national believers from across the globe to do it.
Andrew and Taylor traveled to Myanmar (formerly Burma) to visit some of Andrew’s friends from college who are from that country. His friend and others we met and know there are deeply involved in ministry to other Burmese people there. They visited a seminary, Bible college, children’s Christian school, and Christian orphanage. They witnessed their Burmese friends doing effective ministry in their own culture and language far better than they ever could do ministry there if they went as missionaries. These Burmese Christians all have sound doctrine and training, and are knowledgeable about the people they are ministering to because Myanmar is their home. They realized on this trip that God had called them to serve, resource, and encourage national believers in their ministry ventures, rather than go as Western missionaries themselves. That’s why they began pursuing working with Live Global full-time.
As a couple Andrew and Taylor enjoy playing with their son Elijah and being outside!
