Encounter God. Go to the Nations. Discover Your Purpose.
“I never knew just how valuable and powerful my identity in Christ is until my DTS with YWAM Louisville. God spoke to me about how I am specifically designed with gifts and abilities He gave to me for a reason.”
- Miranda Holden, YWAM DTS Graduate
A Life-Changing Experience
What is YWAM?
Youth With A Mission or YWAM is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures, and traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world.
YWAM Louisville is a missionary community that trains people to know God and live as devoted, Christ-like disciples. We go to places near and far to share the love of Jesus and accomplish the Great Commission.
What people say about YWAM
This week I learned the power I have over my thoughts and God unveiled some lies that I was believing about myself. I learned that I don’t have to accept these lies, but I can rebuke them and speak truth over them. Just knowing I have this power through Jesus has given me confidence and helped me see how much God loves me.
“When I first came to Youth With A Mission I was broken and I felt hopeless. I thought that I was just a person floating around searching for a purpose. God transformed my heart and I have a peace I never thought I'd have.”
“On my YWAM DTS outreach God showed me the importance of taking advantage of every ministry opportunity He gives me, no matter where I am…whether here in a park in Louisville or in the townships of South Africa. He will always use our obedience.”

"During my DTS outreach I felt prompted to tell “Ashley” that God was her loving father. I obeyed and was surprised when she started crying and said this was exactly what she needed to hear in that moment. I am still amazed when God uses me."
