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 is to get to know God better and to make Him known.
Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, YWAM still focusses on youth, but has members of every age ranging from people aged 9 to 90. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.
YWAM has many Ministries which fit into three main categories:
Evangelism, because we believe that everyone should hear the Gospel.
Training, to equip people in their unique calling
Mercy Ministries, giving Hope to the poor, sick and the exploited.
