Knowing God and making Him known.

We didn't so much choose YWAM as God showed us YWAM and said, "Here." Their mission to know God and to make Him known is an excellent and succinct summation of what we seek to do with our lives in Paisley. The organizational structure of YWAM encourages each YWAM team to seek out the best and most innovative ways of reaching the culture in which they're located, and we look forward to being a part of YWAM Scotland as it expands and spreads across the country!

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 8 to 80. 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, and Colombia.”
