ーDriven by God's love we go to the ends of the earth!

Who we are

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 help youth get involved in missions. Today, we still focus on youth and we also include people of all ages. We currently have tens of thousands of staff (called “YWAMers”) from nearly every country, including places like Indonesia, Nepal, Mozambique, and Colombia.


In all of our ministries, we desire to see God’s transformation in every sphere of society. When Jesus talked about the kingdom of God, He described an upside-down world, a transformed world. What would a world like that look like today?
In YWAM, we talk about seven dimensions of societal transformation. We call these spheres. Our many ministries influence the spheres in a variety of ways. The spheres are:
(Science, Technology and Businesses)
(Arts, Entertainment and Sports

This page explains spheres briefly. Call2All is a coalition of churches and mission agencies, of which YWAM is a part.
