Ywam Kansas City

YWAM Kansas City is the product of nearly two decades of planning a strategic alliance between the largest prayer and missions movement on the earth, in a collaborative effort of the Body of Christ to fulfill the Great Commission. Youth With a Mission, a global, multi-cultural expression of Christian believers, pioneered a base in Kansas City in 2011, catalyzing one of the first missional expressions of the global prayer movement. We believe the centrality of God’s presence is fundamental to impacting society locally and globally with the gospel. Our vision involves implementing long-term discipleship models in strategic and measurable missions, co-laboring with other key players in fulfilling the Great Commission such as Call2All, and becoming the apostolic sending hub, bringing the highest revelation of Jesus Christ to the nations.
