Book of the Month

Welcome!” if this is your maiden voyage with us; “Welcome back!” if you’re returning.

This website is designed to be a blessing and an encouragement to anyone who has ever been ‘YWAM-touched,’ anyone who has ever served in Youth With A Mission, or anyone who just kinda likes us.

We have no agenda other than to bring encouragement to you; to show gratitude if you have served in the mission; plus we like to have a little fun.

Most importantly, this site is a way to hang out and maintain relationships that happened through your contact with the mission. We think God is pleased when His kids keep in touch.

This is your website – let us know how we can serve you better.

Welcome Home!


Greetings YWAM Family and Friends!

We are excited to gather again for our annual Presence Gathering at YWAM Chico, November 7th – 9th, 2021. Staff, alumni, YWAMers working in the spheres of society and whole DTS schools from Northern California and beyond will join us for what is always a powerful time of freedom and refreshing in God’s Presence. This year we are including our friends and partners from the Awaken the Dawn (ATD) prayer movement and Watchmen for the Nations. This collaboration will create a powerful synergy of worship, prayer, and missions.

Each time we gather, we invite a spiritual father or mother in YWAM or the larger Body of Christ, not only to speak to us but also to walk with us as we wait on God together, listen to His heart, and apply what He’s saying. This year, we are excited that David Demian is joining us for the entire event. David is an anointed speaker and respected leader-of-leaders in the Body of Christ and heads up the Watchmen for the Nations movement. His message to 400 YWAM leaders in Singapore (2014) on “abiding in the Presence” was a landmark word of the Lord to YWAM international at a defining crossroads for our mission. It will be a privilege to partner with David. You don’t want to miss this! Please join us.

Our time together begins Sunday, with our traditional love feast together, and concludes with breakfast on Wednesday. At the heart of the event are the extended times of intimate and creative worship, leaving room for the Holy Spirit to move and speak—in any way and through anyone He chooses. There will be teaching, both from David Demian and in break-out sessions on focussed topics. And of course the prayer room will be open and active. We’ll also enjoy some relaxed outdoor recreation and fellowship that will help us build relationships with our extended friends and family in the region. There is a lot of variety in our schedule, but our “agenda” is simple—to wait in God’s Presence and receive whatever is on His heart. Let’s position our hearts to receive from Him and move as He moves.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Click here to contact us!

Get ready for a powerful time!
