What is YWAM?
Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. We unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.
In 1960, when Loren Cunningham founded YWAM, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, our focus is not limited to any specific age group. We currently work in more than 180 countries and 1,100 locations with over 18,000 staff.
