Who is YWAM? We're an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced "WHY-wham"), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.
We are aged between 1 and 100. We live in over 150 nations and we like to work with friends in multi-cultural teams, celebrating the diversity of our different experiences, languages, and perspectives. Operating in more than 1000 locations with a staff of over 16,500.
We come from many different Christian traditions and we love to get together and worship God using our different expressions. We are all committed to growing in our understanding of who Jesus is and how He wants us to love and serve the people of the world.
We are very enthusiastic about new ideas. We travel a lot. We are moved by people in need, and we do something about it. We don't mind roughing it. We believe that God wants to have a living relationship with every one of us and we want to explore that deeply. We're not in it for the money. We have discovered that faith in Jesus will take you to places you never dreamed of, to do things you never imagined, in ways you would never believe.
We are Youth With A Mission. We care, convey, change.
