God Can Use Someone Just Like You!

My Journey to Know Jesus at YWAM

By Tyler Tom on 25 Jun 2021

Finding Jesus Changed My Life Forever

It was about 24 years ago, when I saw this sign for the first time at the base entrance.

I was a broken, pregnant teen from New York who found myself in Texas in a maternity home my aunt found that was part of some "weird Christian thing" called YWAM.

Little did I know that this place would become home for me.

Promoting Peace Through Intentional Love

By Tyler Tom on 18 Apr 2018

Recently, I was able to participate with an organization called YWAM, which stands for Youth With a Mission. For the first three months during class time, I learned about the character of God and how to have a deeper relationship with Him. We were discipled, so we could go out and disciple others as well, applying all the things we learned to the cities that we were traveling to.

A YWAM DTS Has Long Lasting Impact

By Amy Fish on 20 Oct 2017

"Everybody's got a story. and it's not the one they're telling." Donald Miller

Donald Miller's writings always provoke me to think deeply. Through vulnerably sharing his own personal stories, Donald essentially holds up a mirror and invites all to look inward. God's creation is quite marvelous, but too often we don't marvel at the reflection we see. Instead, we criticize and scrutinize. This type of self-barragement is unhealthy.

As a missionary, "I Will Go" is something I say a lot.

By Jenna Dorey on 11 Oct 2017

This summer I spent 5 weeks teaching and doing ministry in the nation of Nicaragua.

11 months ago, at the beginning of my School of the Bible, I felt God ask me to be willing to go to Nicaragua for the summer. I said yes, and several months later Nicaragua became an outreach location option for my school. We had enough students wanting to go, so we started planning!
