What is YWAM?

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 8 to 80. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.

One of the joys of participating in YWAM is to work with people from many nations. YWAM's staff (known as "YWAMers") come from over 130 countries, including places like Indonesia, Nepal, Mozambique, and Colombia. In France, there are many different locations where you can do a DTS, Secondary School or short term.

National Leadership

The National Leadership team is made up of some of the most experienced YWAM Leaders in France. They gather on a regular basis to seek God for strategy, to help foster healthy communication and dialogue between all ministries, train base leaders, make annual reviews of operating locations, and to raise awareness of who we are and what we do as YWAM.

Welcome to our new website

By Merel Pyhala - 9th Feb, 2015

We want to welcome you to this new platform for YWAM France. Our desire is that you feel led and inspired to be part of YWAM in France. We would love to see many missionaries and ministries launched in France. We believe that God is going to do something great in France and that He wants to use you to make it happen.

One of the main features of this website is to give you the opportunity to search for all the training options YWAM France has to offer. Without having to search through all the different individual websites you can choose which DTS will work best for you.

We just launched this website, so it could be that we are still working out the last bugs.  If you need any help, or see something that needs to be fixed, please email us at

Thank you for visiting here today. We'd love to see you back at one of our locations.

God bless you!
