Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to presenting Jesus Christ personally to this generation, to mobilising as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and equipping of believer Commission. As Christians of God's Kingdom, we are called to love, worship and obey our Lord, to love and serve His body, the Church, and to present the whole Gospel for the whole man throughtout the whole world.

It began in 1960 and has become a "family of ministries" with more than 250,000 people from many walks of life involved each year in short-term projects.
