YOUTH WITH A MISSION
YOUTH WITH A MISSION
When YWAM began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, our focus still remains on youth, with the participation of people aged 8 to 80. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with more than 18,000 full time and short term volunteers.
One of the joy of participating in YWAM programs or ministries is to serve with people from many nations. YWAM’s staff (known as “YWAMers”) are volunteers from all nations and numerous different Christian denominations.
We believe that ethnic, linguistic and denominational diversity, along with redeemed aspects of culture, are positive factors that contribute to the health and growth of the mission.
Our Mission is to serve and bless the people of Saint Lucia, and the Nations beyond its shores, to raise a generation of leaders who will love God with all of their hearts and others as themselves, equipped to extend His love to those in need here and beyond.
Youth With A Mission (YWAM) affirms the Bible as the inspired and authoritative word of God and, with the Holy Spirit’s guidance, the absolute reference point for every aspect of life and ministry. We are called to praise and worship God alone, to lead holy and righteous lives that exemplify the nature and character of God, to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who do not know Him, to engage in intercessory prayer for the people and causes on God’s heart, including standing against evil in every form, to commit to the Church in both its local nurturing expression and its mobile multiplying expression (Fellowship), to contribute toward God’s Kingdom purposes in every sphere of life.
