KNOWING JESUS goes beyond knowledge about Him or believing that He exists. He is alive! It’s about living with Him and experiencing His love and grace in our lives. When we come to know Jesus, we understand that He is not only a historical figure or a distant God, but a friend who walks with us every day.

AS WE GROW in our relationship with Him, we begin to see the world through His eyes and become more like Him. Knowing Jesus is a lifelong journey of faith and transformation, and it brings us true joy, peace, and purpose in life.



THROUGH LEARNING to read Scripture with an awareness of the ministry of Holy Spirit to bring revelation, we can move from reading as a ‘duty’ to reading Scripture as a dynamic way to encounter the presence of God and live in his story.

THE BIBLE is used in a way that strengthens our faith, renews our mind, shapes our heart desires, and strengthens our wills to make right choices. We read, meditate, study and memorize Scripture and we use Scripture in worship and intercession and praying for others. We provide an overview of the story of the Bible, including its main themes, and how individual books and stories fit into and contribute to the whole.



EXPERIENCE a catalytic movement activating our generation. Together, we exist to mobilize a generation into their missional calling to bring the message of Jesus to neighborhoods, schools and universities, nations, and communities around the world. Get trained and connect with Carry The Love, Circuit Riders, The Legacy Project, The Send, Alttari network and beyond.



WE ARE A YWAM mission and training community. We train you to live a missional lifestyle through transformative teaching, practical training, personal coaching, and hands-on experience. Engage in real missional projects with like-minded people and discover your purpose by adopting, serving, and reaching a mission field at home, with your church or abroad.
