Welcome to Youth With A Mission- Springs of Living Water. We are a community focused on reaching out locally and globally, through evangelism, training and mercy ministries. Located in Chico, California, we inspire, equip and send missionaries throughout the world. YWAM Chico is part of a much bigger picture. Youth With A Mission is a global movement, with thousands of locations worldwide. Every one of us can sum up who we are and what we do in one statement: To know God and make Him known.
People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives… and when the bubble has burst, they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted.
I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it out in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light.
Does it not stir up our hearts, to go forth and help them, does it not make us long to leave our luxury, our exceeding abundant light, and go to them that sit in darkness?
The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.
To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map.
I believe that in each generation God has called enough men and women to evangelize all the yet unreached tribes of the earth. It is not God who does not call. It is man who will not respond!
Here am I. Send me.
Sympathy is no substitute for action.
I make it my ambition to preach Christ where he has not been named.
The Glory of God is man fully alive.
