YWAM Ocean City is a local expression of an international missions 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).
Our mission is to connect, equip, and send volunteers who serve God in every area of influence.
We’re the creators of Converge, a program set to launch in Summer 2017 designed to help student volunteers pursue their passion and purpose. Converge is a YWAM Initiative with the goal of mobilizing thousands of student volunteers who want their life to count for Christ. We will do this by connecting students to internships with hosts all over the world and then equipped them through an online training program before they are sent to their chosen internship.
We also run discipleship courses to train workers to help in this missions mobilization effort here in Ocean City, NJ. We ran our first Discipleship Training School earlier this year, and we will run a Discipleship Training Course in January.
Our small staff team has been working hard to complete the Converge program, prepare for the Discipleship Training Course, and develop the operation to sustain the growth of our ministries. We seek three important new staff members, including a DTS Leader, a Tech Director, and a Marketing Specialist. Like all YWAM staff, we are “faith missionaries,” which means we do not receive a salary. We trust God and the generosity of His people for our personal needs and that of our ministry.
