About us

Youth with a mission

Youth With A Mission is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced ‘WHY-wam’), our calling is to know God and to make Him known. Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth into short-term mission work and to give them opportunities to reach out in Jesus’ name. Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people of almost every age (even many people who choose to spend their ‘retirement’ in active service). Our many ministries fit into three main categories; evangelism, training and mercy ministry. WE are currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 149 countries with a staff of nearly 16,000

YWAM Virginia Beach will be focused on worship.  We will serve the community, the local churches, and ministries.  

In doing this we will operate in evangelism, discipleship, service, and training through Discipleship Training Schools (DTS).  

‘’Our ultimate goal is to establish and multiply an atmosphere of worship through discipleship and empowering the body of Christ to fulfill the Great Commission.’’

With this we will be focused on and cover:

  • Acts of services.

  • Training.

  • Equipping.

  • Community evangelism and discipleship.

  • Outreach locally and abroad.

  • Disciple making movement.
