The Unreached are in Greece
400,000 refugees sought asylum in Greece in 2015, and over 2,000 more arrive on Greek shores every day. Most of the refugees are coming from war-torn nations like Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. Nations that are on the Open Doors World Watch List, and are “closed” to the Gospel. But now many are in Greece–a completely open access nation. YWAM United is a joint venture outreach that seeks to address this need.
This is a huge opportunity to meet unreached people groups where they are.
YWAM United’s outreach to Greece will provide opportunities for evangelism, mercy ministry and training, and teams will be created around these focus areas. So let’s be the hands and feet of Jesus. Let’s go and change the lives of those that have had to flee their homes out of fear of death.

YWAM United is a joint venture of local bases
YWAM United was born of the meeting together of several California YWAM bases at the annual Presence Gathering here in Chico in 2015. The Presence Gathering is a time to gather together and seek the Lord as a YWAM family beyond the confines of our own local ministries. We will be hosting The Presence Gathering will be held at YWAM Chico Sunday November 5th, 2017 to Saturday November 11th. Our goal is to relate with one another in a way that draws us to support and serve one another based on relationship. We recognize the beauty and giftings inherent in each local expression of YWAM, and find that we have much to learn from each other.
Last year, during our time of seeking the Lord together, we felt He was leading us to join together to face the refugee crisis in Greece. So, we have joined together as YWAM United to unite our people, talents and passions to be more effective ministers of the gospel to many who have never yet heard.
