A magnificent vision is described in chapter seven of the book of Revelation. Crowds of people worshipping God around His throne from every nation, every tribe and every tongue! YWAM FM aims to be part of making that vision a reality by going to places where people who follow Jesus are either unknown or too few to fruitfully share the teaching of Jesus effectively. These people are known as unreached. Despite all the communication advancements of our age they remain unreached because they live in places that are geographically remote, politically restrained, culturally isolated or otherwise separated from hearing the message of Jesus.
There are thousands of unreached people groups around the world, and YWAM FM partners with the global Christian family to serve in many of them because we believe that Jesus’ teaching is for everyone on earth–not just those who enjoy religious freedom, or have satellite TV or are literate, but also for those who are hard to find, challenging to get to and require creative means to communicate with.
Jesus transforms the lives of individuals, families, communities and nations, so people who find Him also discover that His blessings influence and improve every area of their lives. This belief is reflected in YWAM FM’s efforts to share what Jesus called the kingdom of God. We’re not solely interested in proclaiming the message of Jesus in a way that can be understood. We also want to see disciples of Jesus meeting together to worship Him, learning to obey His teachings and join in His global purposes, and producing other groups of disciples who will multiply and spread His teachings to the farthest corners of the world!
Alongside this, we aim to introduce the blessings of God’s kingdom where they are not yet seen by providing for the poor and needy through agricultural projects, income-generation projects, health care, clean water initiatives and education and other opportunities which enable people to lead productive, fruitful lives. This is what Jesus called us to when He directed us to pray, “Your kingdom come…on earth, as it is in heaven”!
This is no small task! The YWAM FM circle includes men and women of all ages from many nations, with a wide variety of skills and experiences. They share a determination that no one should be left out of the kingdom of God; they share a faith that Jesus will make their efforts fruitful in even the most challenging of places; and they share the courage required to be among the first to take Him to the last to hear.
