You are called to live extraordinarily. Say goodbye to business-as-usual Christianity. Now is the time to join what God is doing in the earth.

The nations are waiting. Will you go?

Come to YWAM (Youth with a Mission) Kansas City to discover your part in the completion of the Great Commission. This is a training ground for believers who want to make an impact through their faith.

There are different training programs you can sign up for to build your faith and knowledge of God. The journey of your training will begin with Discipleship Training School (DTS), a 6-month program with different focuses that trains students how to be a missionary. This includes evangelism, church planting, hearing God’s voice, and going into the nations to practice what you’ve learned.

After completion of your Discipleship Training School, you can go back to college, continue your career in the workplace, become a YWAM KC staff, or build upon your DTS training with a Secondary School that focuses on biblical studies. All of this training is university-accredited and gives you credits towards a degree from the University of the Nations.
