Youth With A Mission (YWAM) began in 1960 and one of its three overall thrusts is YWAM-Mercy – an integral approach in mission. Our model and example is Jesus Christ and his compassionate response to the needs of all people.
YWAM-Mercy is operational in more than 100 countries as it seeks to impact more than 100 million living in absolute poverty in the next 20 years. From agricultural assistance to health care to micro enterprise development, YWAM-Mercy seeks to meet the felt needs of individuals and communities, children at risk, refugees, those living with life-threatening addictions and those living on the edge of survival in both crisis and long term development situations.
Values that are central to the operations of YWAM-Mercy
Love God in both word and deed
Affirm human dignity, value, equality and worth for all peoples
Encourage people to be free to live and to act according to their conscience
Promote hope in the present and to empower plans for the future
Encourage personal and community participation and sharing in decision making
Promote transformation in all aspects of society
Continue to learn and to live in humilty
Will you join this international, multi-cultural movement in bringing a message of hope to these people?
Will you join us by praying, giving of your skills, finances and your commitment? As the mission expands, so does the need for workers. Countless opportunities, covering a wide spectrum of skills and professions exist today.
Jesus came to give life, & life to the full.
We at YWAM-Mercy do our best to see this promise brought to the masses, crossing political barriers, socio-economical and cultural barriers, reaching out to a needy and hurting world.
