To know God and

to make Him known.

About Us

YWAM Ocean City is a local expression of an international movement called Youth With A Mission. YWAM involves Evangelism (because every person has a right to hear the message of Jesus), Training (to prepare people to fulfill their unique calling from God), and Mercy Ministries (helping the the poor and those who suffer injustice).


Converge is a YWAM initiative designed for Christian students and emerging leaders seeking a global internship or volunteer service assignment.  Converge uses an online recruiting, training, and fundraising platform to connect skilled interns to global projects related to their fields of study or a cause that they are passionate about.
