Loren CunninghamDear Visitor to YWAM.org,

The doors of opportunity for us to share the gospel of Jesus Christ have never been so wide open. From Eastern Europe to the jungles of the Amazon, from the crowded cities of Asia to the villages of Africa, people are hungry to hear the message you have to give.

In 1953, I went on my first outreach. I was a teenager at the time and I went with some other teens into Mexico. We preached in our broken Spanish and were absolutely amazed that God could use us to reach into another culture and win people for Jesus.

Today the needs in the world are enormous and at times frightening. While we continue to share the love of Jesus in places of great need around the world, I can assure you that our outreach staff do so only after prayerfully and carefully considering the risks involved. We are committed to your safety and to helping you discover where God is leading you to serve.

No matter where you may be in life—young or old, single or married (with families too!), skilled or unskilled, from any nation or denominational background—God has a calling for your life. By asking God where He wants you to serve and moving out in obedience to His calling, you will experience firsthand His faithfulness and the joy of seeing His kingdom extended.

This website is full of opportunities and resources to help you find your place in God’s wonderful plan. As you explore, I want to encourage you to pray about how you can be a part of what God is doing throughout the world.

If we can help you in any way, please contact us at one of the locations you’ll find on this website or on the website for our University of the Nations. God bless you.
