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 two 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.
Our mission process prepares individuals and groups to confidently share their faith for a lifetime while providing great ministry experiences around the world. Those who go spend time training and preparing, being challenged to grow in their leadership and faith prior to leaving for their ministry site. When they go, participants learn from and work alongside established missionaries to support the local church and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the community.
Youth volunteers grow in confidence as they help lead children who might not attend traditional church to hear the message of Jesus. In addition, college-age interns grow into young Christian leaders as they prepare for and direct camp for churches needing their assistance. Base Sports uses VBS style sports camps as a way to grow the church, build its relationships in the community, and train more young leaders.
