Our Mission Focus
The 10/40 Window
There is a place where 3 billion people have yet to hear the message of the gospel, a region home to 80% of the world's poorest peoples, and where only 4% of missionaries are living and working. This is where God has invited us to go, to bring hope, to share the message of the gospel, where we believe transformation is going to take hold!
The 10/40 window is a massive region, stretching from 10 to 40 degrees north latitude, and as far as west Africa to East Asia. It is where there is the most need for the Gospel and where there is the most need for people to go to.
This is the last frontier of world Missions, the same place where missions began nearly 2,000 years ago! We say yes to go, to the places others don't or where they are not willing. It's not easy, but God has only been waiting for the next generation to say "yes"! We invite you to join your 'yes' with ours, to see the Gospel reaching the ears of communities and people groups for the first time in history! For Nations, communities, and lives to be transformed by the restoring power of the God!
Let's do it! Together. Are you ready?
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 9 to 90. 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, Colombia, and Germany!
