WHO WE ARE
We are an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.
YWAM has a decentralized structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through training, convey the message of the gospel and care for those in need. We are currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.
YWAM’s waves hit the shores of the Philippines more than 30 years ago. One crest of those present-day waves is the Mobile Discipleship Ministry. In 1993, Doug Sharpe and family, together with the Mobile Discipleship Team set out to pioneer a training center in Talisay City, Cebu. From the very first day when they set foot on the property in Carmen Village, Talisay City, it has been an adventure of faith!
