YWAM Converge Vision
A New Generation of Missionaries!
Our mission is to connect, equip, and send young people to serve in every area of influence.
To accomplish our mission, we need to gather like-minded people, grow as individuals and as a team, and go into ALL the world, including EVERY area of influence. (Mt. 28:18-20)
No matter the size of this YWAM team, we will be a missional community. Therefore, we will develop these three circles of ministry function:
Gather – We gather students and partners, especially for worship, intercession, and fellowship.
Grow – We teach and learn. We are dedicated to spiritual formation and transformation. We conduct seminars, one-day training, short-courses, and occasional residential schools.
Go! – We mobilize. We send students to projects where hosts invite them to serve and learn. And occasionally, we lead teams on special projects or outreaches related to training we conduct.
