A Family of Missionaries Multiplying, Equipping, and Launching Faithful Leaders who Actively Fulfill the Great Commission


YWAM Louisville

YWAM Louisville is a missionary community, training people to know God and to 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 is


Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures, and traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), our purpose is simply to know God and to make him known.


What's Special About YWAM Louisville

God wants to redeem the entire world, and we believe he wants to do that through his people. At YWAM Louisville our family of 50+ full-time missionaries is committed to the Great Commission and passionate enough to think we can complete it. We’re young people and not-so-young. Married and not-yet-married. Introverts and extroverts. Outdoor adventurers and bookworms. Coffee enthusiasts and tea sippers. Parents of toddlers, parents of teenagers, or still teenagers ourselves. Athletes, musicians, photographers, sci-fi nerds, you name it. Add to the mix a handful of staff kids and our ever-growing student body, and you’ve got a lively community.
