At YMI, we believe in empowering youth through authentic ministry experiences. We find that when youth are given tools, training, and opportunities to share Jesus, their faith grows and deepens like never before. We provide four distinct ministry experiences, in partnership with local churches, designed to allow youth to experience God at work in their lives as they are challenged and grow into young Christian leaders who love to share Jesus.
Mission experiences are a great training ground for building young Christian leaders who love to share Jesus. Through missions we prepare individuals and groups to confidently share their faith for a lifetime. Participants learn from and work alongside established missionaries (indigenous when possible) to support the local church and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the community.
Sport is a kind of universal language. Children who might not attend traditional church hear the message of Jesus, youth volunteers grow in confidence as they help lead, and college-age interns grow into young Christian leaders as they prepare for and direct camp. Base Sports uses VBS style sports camps as a way to support and grow the church and its relationships in the community.
