We are a YWAM community called to mobilize and multiply followers of Christ to bring the Kingdom of God to the least-reached people by focusing on strategic issues, seasons, places, people, and spheres of influence in society. We will do this by discipling each other in healthy community, living out the Lordship of Christ, locally and globally.
Revelation isn't the end of God's story. He is still moving across the entire world. People are encountering Him, miracles are happening, and lives are changing. We all have a part to play in God's great story. What's yours? Join us and find out!
Since pioneering in 1993 we have been dedicated to seeing Christ glorified in our lives while bringing His transformation to the 10/40 Window. Our heart's desire is to see people live out their part in God's story. We have five main teams that help make this desire a reality. Our training team runs a multitude of Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) as well as second level university courses. Our mobilization team works to engage people in missions. Our impact team helps to send out new missionaries and make sure the ones currently serving are well taken care of. Our remaining two teams keep everything running smoothly.

Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced - WHY-wham), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.
Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people aged 9 to 90. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.
In addition to operating under YWAM International's 18 values, God has given us three values unique to our campus.

Coupled with living to know God and make Him known, we have a desire to see the least reached reached with the love of Christ. All of our overseas efforts are focused on the part of the world called the 10/40 window. In short this is the part of the world that is the most densely populated with the least amount of people who have access to the Gospel. It's not that they've decided Jesus isn't for them, a majority have never even heard of Jesus!
We MOBILIZE the church to get people involved in missions to see the Great Commission completed, EQUIP people to be dedicated followers of Christ and train them to go, SEND equipped workers to the least-reached people of the world, SUSTAIN those sent to be healthy and effective workers and EVALUATE everything we do to improve and realign as led by God.
Our building was formerly a hotel. So we have hotel rooms that have been converted into student housing and some staff housing. We have classrooms in former conference rooms, offices, ballrooms, a full commercial kitchen, dining hall, our own coffee shop, swimming pool, courtyard and playground, basketball court, workout room, and more!
We are located in the heart of Colorado Springs, just 3 miles from beautiful hiking and adventuring and 4 miles from a lively downtown. We’re walking distance from Chick-Fil-A! (and many other shops and restaurants).
Colorado Springs is a super unique city. It’s the second largest city in Colorado but can totally have a small town feel. There is an abundance of hiking and adventure as well as shops and restaurants.
