What Is Mission Building?

Mission Builders are people who have a heart for missions but can only serve on a short-term basis. This program allows you to serve full-time with a mission organization in support areas with full involvement in community activities. You will be helping to build and support the efforts of the organization in equipping and sending youth out to the mission field through practical and logistical roles. Mission Builder volunteers “lift up the arms” of frontline missionaries through practical, hands-on service.

Length of Time

United States citizens and foreign volunteers can join us for any length of time between three weeks and three months. If you are interested in continuing on with ministry after your three months, we encourage you to attend one of Youth With A Mission’s Discipleship Training Schools (DTS). A DTS is a prerequisite for long term staff involvement at any YWAM location and establishes a solid foundation for future ministry.

All applications for volunteer involvement are prayerfully considered. The volunteer program is not designed to be a discipleship or counseling program, but rather an opportunity for Christians to be exposed to missions work and actively participate in the vision of sending missionaries to the nations.
