Youth With A Mission is an international and interdenominational volunteer movement of Christians, from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions. When YWAM began in 1960, the main focus was giving young people opportunities to demonstrate the love of Jesus to the whole world. Today, we still focus on youth, but we have members of almost every age and many of our short-term efforts have grown into long-term endeavors that have impacted lives and nations.
The Youth With A Mission campus, located just north of Tyler, is one of the key international training and sending centers for YWAM. Each year YWAM Tyler trains and send hundreds of young people, from many nations and backgrounds, to effect those influential spheres of society in the transformation of nations. All of this training takes place right here in the heart of East Texas.
