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. As a movement we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.
Back when YWAM 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 9 to 90. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.
As an expression of YWAM here in Harpenden, we reflect the international nature of the mission with over 20 nationalities among nearly 100 staff. Our dream is to help you work out your destiny (*or calling???), so that you can change the world for the Kingdom of God.
