Financial Support

uofnkonahomeSince YWAM’s inception, the founders Loren and Darlene Cunningham felt from the Lord that the work of each missionary, ministry and campus should be built on the principles of “living by faith” and “support-raising.” As a result, YWAM adopted a relationship-based approach to missions: everyone is required to raise their own support, primarily through enlisting the partnership of friends, families, and churches in order to serve with the mission. This means volunteers do not receive a salary or remuneration from YWAM for their work with YWAM.

This lifestyle of faith is the model given to us by the Levitical priests,  Jesus Himself, the Apostle Paul, and the missionary teams of the New Testament (Numbers 18:21-24; Luke 8:1-3; Matthew 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 9:13; Philippians).

As Youth With A Missions (YWAM) missionaries, we are called to practice a life of dependence upon God for financial provision. For individual missionaries, and YWAM corporately, this is accomplished primarily through His people, the body of Christ. Through the financial partnership of friends, churches and other relationships we are all able to do what God has called us to do being full-time YWAM missionaries. If you are interested in financially giving we have 4 simple and easy ways to accomplish that:
