Youth with a Mission (YWAM) is an international and interdenominational missionary organisation. Our motto and calling is “To Know God and Make Him Known”. YWAM divides its efforts in three main focuses: Evangelism, Training and Mercy Ministries. YWAM is present in more than 1,000 locations, over 150 countries with about 16,000 people serving as staff.
YWAM started in 1960 with the vision of enabling young people to go on short term Missions and spread the gospel worldwide. YWAM has a decentraliSed structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through making God known in different ways. We believe in the importance of reaching out and serving the different generations, so we have ministries with kids and welcome people that even want to serve through to their retirement years.
