About Us

Here at Youth With A Mission, we are dedicated to the tri-fold calling of our mission: evangelism, training and mercy ministry. It is our goal to bring the whole gospel in a relevant way wherever God takes us.

This means we are committed to ministry globally. It is our goal to bring the gospel to places that have yet to have an established church or missions presence. And we maintain our objective of reaching out to those in need and in poverty.

It also means that we are committed to ministry locally. We recognize the need for the gospel in our own hometown and nation and aspire to do our part here to reach the lost, encourage the church, and faithfully represent Jesus Christ to the people around us.

Here are some of the things we are involved with regularly:

Join Us:



Evangelism | Training | Mercy Ministry

YWAM Ministries


We are committed to helping communities in practical ways and growing food efficiently helps to address the widespread issue of hunger. On our campus we are increasing our knowledge and expertise by using test gardens and greenhouses and techniques such as aquaponics and no till gardening […]

Camps & Conferences

Easily our largest ministry is hosting camps and conferences. Each year more than 5,000 people come through our campus. We have the opportunity to serve our greater YWAM family, the local body of Christ, encourage youth in missions focus, and see hundreds give their lives to the Lord.

Circuit Teaching

Our campus is privileged to have great teachers on staff who travel all over the world to teach and equip missionaries. Many of our staff also teach in our various schools. Please contact us if you would like to invite one of our speakers to your church or ministry.

Community Reach

Hamilton City Reach is a ministry that focuses on a Hispanic community outside of Chico, CA.  Our desire is to bring God’s revival to all areas of life in this small town.  We regularly complete community projects and disciple a group of teen boys.  Our Mercy Project team expresses God’s love by meeting practical needs that people have.  If you have a passion to see Hispanics in America reached by God’s powerful compassion and relentless love for them, then come and join our team and practice your Spanish!

Downtown Evangelism

Most weekends a team from YWAM Chico is downtown sharing about God’s love and building relationships. Our teams hit the streets to reach the college bar scene and the transient community that passes through. There are also opportunities to join the Chico Street Pastors, a movement to reach out to the downtown night scene.

Homeless Ministry

Every week we send a team to serve meals and offer friendship and prayer to men, women and families at the Jesus Center (Chico’s center for homeless people). This is part of a ministry that focuses on downtown Chico. Our teams also lead worship there and create a powerful atmosphere for God’s presence to deeply touch people’s lives.

International Christian School

The teachers and assistants at the International Christian School on the YWAM Chico campus have a key ministry to missionary kids. The school serves as an educational option for the children of our staff and students. If you have a heart to minister to MKs, this is a great place to do it.

International Outreach

While we are committed to reaching out locally, we are called to the nations–and especially to go and bring the gospel where there is little to no church presence. Besides our regular training school outreaches, we also send teams of staff to share the gospel, meet practical needs and teach.

Mexico Adventures

In just one year our Mexico Adventures program serves over 8,000 meals, builds more than 25 houses, hands out hundreds of shoes, baby and clothing items and shares the gospel with many individuals and families […]

The House of Redeeming Love

The House of Redeeming Love is being established to restore women coming from homelessness and brokenness. The house will be opened in 2017 and will offer an 18 month program to six women. The program with include a specially designed DTS, practical life schools, regular counseling and healing and much more […]

University Ministries

This is a ministry that concentrates on reaching the college students in our city.  Our staff focus on outreach to international students by regularly meeting with Asian Christian Fellowship.  Through food, relationship and the sharing of God’s heart for them, many of these students have come to know the Lord while studying in Chico.  We also believe that the high statistic of young Christians going to universities and losing their heart for God does not have to continue.
