Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.
Back when we 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 have tens of thousands of staff (called “YWAMers”) and we work in thousands of teams and locations.
One of the joys of participating in YWAM is to work with people from many nations. YWAM’s staff come from nearly every country in the world, including places like Indonesia, Nepal, Mozambique, and Colombia.
Movement Discipleship Training School is a 5-month experience where you will grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically. The school is broken up into two phases. The first part of the school is three months in Boston followed by 2 months in Southeast Asia.
We believe that Jesus desires wholistic transformation of our lives! He wants our whole heart, mind, strength, and life! Together, in a family-like community, you will encounter the truth of Jesus and be challenged to apply what you are learning producing accelerated personal growth and life transformation for the glory of God!
The first 3 months will be spent in Boston. Our ministry campus is located just three miles from downtown with breathtaking views of the skyline. During these first 3 months, you will glean from a different visiting teacher each week in the context of a community. Our teachers are required to have life experience in the topic they cover. Lecture content will be supplemented by times of group intercession, worship, small group, and evangelism. Each day will have a session focusing on your health and fitness.
We are partnering with a local CrossFit gym where we will be involved in a wide variety of exercises including running, biking, rowing, weightlifting, and body weight exercises. All of this will be done in a no judgment atmosphere full of encouragement and fun! Whether you are already passionate about fitness or want to take your first step towards greater health, we invite you to join us and discover the transforming power of pursuing health and fitness in a Christ-centered community!
After 3 months of transformation in Boston we will travel to Southeast Asia to partner with YWAM in Cambodia. Cambodia is less than 2% evangelical Christian and is in great need of the gospel to be preached and demonstrated with power and compassion. We will be working with an established fitness ministry in Cambodia, supporting and encouraging their work. We will learn from them as we get hands-on opportunity to serve by their side and see what God is doing to reach their city Your eyes will be opened to the vast potential of kingdom impact in the nations as you are exposed to a variety of different ministries. Additional potential ministry involvement includes evangelism, cafe ministry, fitness related ministry, teaching English, ministering to children at risk, church planting, etc.
There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing God use your life to touch the life of another! Join us! Join the movement!
