Who we are
YWAM Iceland is a community of missional disciples who are committed to growing in intimacy with God and surrendering to the authority of His Son. As stewards of the North, we seek to pray for Iceland and lift up His name in worship. We desire to be transformed by the Gospel and bring relevant action into all spheres of society. We are committed to engaging in God’s grand purpose of redemption, from the North to the ends of the earth.
Our Discipleship training school (DTS)
Our DTS has a strong focus on backpacking, taking what Jesus said literally when he said to “go out into all the nations.” The majority of our 10-week lecture phase will take place in Iceland, with a stop in the Faroe Islands. Then, we will send two teams into South America and Southeast Asia for outreach.
"Help me to journey beyond the familiar
and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways
and break fresh ground with you.”
- The Prayer of Saint Brendan the Navigator
What is Youth With a mission?
Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups and denominations, dedicated to serving Jesus Christ throughout the world. We unite in the common purpose "to know God and to make Him known."
Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, we still focus on youth, but people aged 9 to 90 are also involved. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with over 18,000 staff.
