The Bigger Picture: YWAM International

 When you join a Youth With A Mission campus you become a part of a much larger family. YWAM is an international, interdenominational, missions movement. YWAM’s goal is to Know God and Make Him Known through evangelism, training, and mercy ministry, and we do this all over the world. Watch this short video to find out more.

Who We Are

YWAM Nashville is an apostolic missionary discipleship movement, that passionately pursues God and all people. Fully alive, we reach and awaken the world that He loves through discipleship, training, and mobilization. We are passionate about worship, evangelism, and intercessory prayer, and are dedicated to seeing revival on our campus, in America, and across the world.

Our Campus

For more than 20 years we have ministered from our serene, 120 acre, countryside  campus in Adams, Tennessee, about 50 minutes from the heart of Nashville. Our 120 acre campus makes for a beautiful backdrop to our discipleship programs, with plenty of room to quiet your life and seek the Lord. We are located between two great past revival spots: the Red River Meeting House, where the Second Great Awakening began in 1800, and the Ryman Auditorium in the heart of Nashville, built in 1892 to house the revivals breaking out in Nashville. We feel that this is significant in what the Lord wants to do here, and it shapes our culture as a campus.

Our Staff

Our staff includes singles and families, parents and grandparents, all of whom willingly raise their own finances, to help them serve Jesus Christ, and fulfill His last commandment to make disciples of all nations. We are a family of passionate, wild-eyed worshipers, who are ready to give it all in the effort to see His glory made known throughout the earth.

Joining Staff

The first step into full-time missions with Youth With A Mission is the Discipleship Training School (DTS). After completing the DTS, you are now eligible to join staff here at YWAM Nashville, as well as many other bases. We love welcoming new members into our family! Anyone interested in joining staff must fill out a staff application. Every application is prayed over and reviewed by base leadership.
