YWAM Saint Lucia is a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), unites people with a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.
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 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 joys 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.
