Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.

Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people aged 8 to 80. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.

YWAMers are dedicated to presenting Jesus personally to this generation, to mobilizing as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and equipping of believers for their part in fulfilling the Great Commission. As citizens of God’s kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and obey our Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present the whole gospel for the whole person throughout the whole world.

  We of Youth With A Mission believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is God’s son; that people are created in God’s image; that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ; that although all people have sinned and come short of God’s glory, God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ; that repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us; that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth; and that the Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ’s last commandment, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15).

    1. Really? Wow, YWAM is pretty well known. Probably the largest evangelical missions organization. So glad that you’ll be checking it out. You know, there are a ton of different ministries that are working in the area of human trafficking. Thought you’d be interested…

      1. I just started our ministry last year to reach out to abuse victims after God told me to write my book and start this ministry. I am still learning every day. I was never in a church that had “missions” so was not familiar. I have heard of Christine Caine and several other ministries that reach out to human trafficking victims and have a social worker working with me as I reach out to abuse victims. We are only in the beginning stages with a huge vision that God has given me… but all in His timing. Thanks again and many blessings to you….

      2. God can do great and powerful things with the vision of one person, wouldn’t you say?
        God bless you and all of your work.

  1. I served with Student Venture and we had some wonderful collaboration events with YWAM!
    Blessings to you!
