We are international and interdenominational with around 20.000 fulltime missionaries who are all depending on donations from friends and families. YWAM Rotterdam is a pioneer location. We hope to grow into a base where young people of different nationalities live and work together to spread the Good News in Rotterdam and the surrounding area. In September 2025 we will start with our first DTS! Keep an eye on this website for more information. Read more about the origins of Youth with a Mission in Rotterdam below.

The start of Youth with a Mission Rotterdam
Youth With A Mission Rotterdam came into being early 2008, when God asked Corma to start working full time as a missionary in her own area. The expectation that she had, was that God soon would call more people to join. This didn’t happen, but after 13 years we can say that ‘the ground is prepared’ and that the city and its surroundings are more than ready to welcome ‘Youth with a Mission pioneers’.
At this moment we mainly focus on training and evangelism. We do this together with people from different churches and other Christian organizations. We have a large network and there are many wonderful opportunities to share the gospel. Our motto is to ‘change our city one event at a time’. So we are always looking for moments and ways to share the gospel with larger groups of people. You can read more about our ministries here.

The work of Youth With A Mission has 3 pillars:
Founded in 1960
Youth with a Mission International was founded in 1960 by Loren Cunningham. The focus back then was mainly on motivating young people to go on short mission trips. Loren was convinced that you don’t necessarily need a theological education to be able to pass on the love of and for Jesus. By now it is normal for many organizations and churches when groups of people go abroad for a short mission trip.
At the end of 2020, Youth With A Mission celebrated its 60th anniversary worldwide. Loren Cunningham said: “I think the future will be so much more wonderful than the past. That’s what I expect.” We expect this with him and look forward to what God will do through us in the years to come. For more information on the history of Youth with a Mission International, we encourage you to read the book, “Is This Really Yours Lord?” written by Loren Cunningham.
Youth With A Mission recognizes that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God, inspired by Him. This makes the Bible the absolute point of reference for every aspect of life. Our response to this is as follows:
Goal of Youth With A Mission
Youth With A Mission is an international movement of Christians, seeking to personally make Jesus known to this and future generations, mobilizing, training and equipping as many people as possible to do their part in fulfilling the Great Commission. As Christians, we are called to love and worship our Lord and be obedient to Him. To love and serve the body of Christ, the Church. And to love all nations everywhere on earth. To share with others the Good News about the Lord Jesus. We as Youth with a Mission believe in God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and that the Bible is the God-inspired and authoritative Word, revealing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God: fully man and fully God . We believe that humanity was created in God’s image; that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ; that though all men have sinned and fall short of God’s glory, yet God has made it possible for men to be saved through the incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. Repentance, faith, love, and obedience are a fitting response to God’s initiative of grace. God desires that all people will be saved and that they come to know the truth about Him; and that the power of the Holy Spirit becomes visible in and through us, for carrying out the last commandments that Christ gave us: “Go about all the world and declare the good news to every creature” (NIV, Mark 16:15) ) and “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” (NIV, Matthew 28:19).
The following responses are strongly emphasized in YWAM:
We are called to praise and worship God alone (Exo 20:2-3; Deu 6:4-5; 2Ki 17:35-39; 1Ch 16:28-30; Neh 8:2-10; Mar 12:29-30; Rom 15:5-13; Jud 24-25; Rev 5:6-14; Rev 19:5-8).
We are called to lead holy and righteous lives that exemplify the nature and character of God (Lev 19:1-2; Psa 51:7-11; Jer 18:1-11; Eze 20:10-12; Zec 13:9; Luk 1:68 75; Eph 4:21-32; Tit 2:11-14; 1Pe 2:9,21-25; 1Jo 3:1-3).
We are called to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who do not know Him (Psa 78:1-7; Isa 40:3-11; Mic 4:1-2; Hab 2:14; Luk 24:44-48; Act 2:32-26; Act 10:39-43; 1Co 9:19-23; 2Co 2:12-17; 1Pe 3:15-18).
We are called to engage in intercessory prayer for the people and causes on God’s heart, including standing against evil in every form (Gen 18:20-33; Exo 32:1-16; Jdg 3:9,15; 1Ki 8:22-61; Eze 22:30-31; Eze 33:1-11; Mat 6:5-15; Mat 9:36-38; Eph 3:14 21; 2Th 3:1-5).
We are called to commit to the Church in both its local nurturing expression and its mobile multiplying expression (2Ch 29:20-30; Psa 22:25-28; Psa 122:1-4; Joe 2:15 17; Mat 18:19-20; Act 2:44-47; Act 4:32-35; 1Co 14:26-40; Eph 2:11-18; Heb 10:23-25).
We are called to contribute toward God’s Kingdom purposes in every sphere of life (Deu 15:7-11; Deu 24:17-22; Psa 112:4-9; Pro 11:10-11; Zec 7:8-10; Mat 5:14-16; 2Th 3:13; Tit 3:4-8; Heb 13:15-16; Jam 2:14-26).
