About us

We are a community of missionaries from all across the globe, young and old, united by the call of God on our lives and obedience to His guidance. Our vision is the simple, yet grand design of the Father’s heart: to see Jesus glorified in every nation, tribe, and tongue, and be transformed through a continual encounter with the Holy God and creator of all things.

Our Vision


Youth with a Mission (YWAM) is a non-profit global missions organization with one main purpose: To know God and make Him known. It began in 1960 when one man, Loren Cunningham, obeyed the guidance of the Lord and dared to believe the seemingly impossible dream the Lord gave him: a massive movement of young people answering the call of the Great Commission, to go and make disciples of Jesus Christ.
This dream Loren had slowly became a reality as the Lord took the faith the size of a mustard seed and moved mountains to make Youth With a Mission what it is today. There are over 18,000 current volunteer missionaries in over 180 countries serving the Lord by serving their communities. YWAM seeks to make Jesus known by “becoming all things” to serve and love all people in every nation the Lord leads us.

Our community

We are a dedicated and passionate community who believe transformed lives go on to transform lives by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are committed to seeing thousands of disciples being sent out, giving the Gospel feet and being stewards of God’s Kingdom here on earth. We look first to our own backyard, to the nation of Germany. Then, to the greater continent of Europe, and to the very ends of the earth, seeking new and creative ways of making Jesus known. We long to see generations come together, united under one purpose, adopted into one family, and living lives loving the Lord with all our hearts and loving our neighbors. We believe the change starts with us living lives imitating Christ’s love and humility, His obedience to the will of the Father, and His heart for all people to know the truth which sets them free.
