to knowing God and making Him known |
Our primary purpose as Victoria's YWAM Base is to come alongside the
local church to serve, train, disciple, equip and mobilize the family
of Christ. Our aim is to first love and know God through Jesus Christ
so that we may be empowered to make His Gospel known in word and deed
throughout Victoria, Vancouver Island, and other target areas.
We desire to accomplish this by developing leaders and fostering and
nurturing mature leadership in the lives of the Youth With A Mission
staff, who in turn will be able to mentor and train others in the Body
of Christ. We are committed to building bridges and promoting unity
between believers in all Christian denominations and ministries so that
the world may be won to Jesus Christ.
Throughout the twelve years of our history, a number of ministries,
outreaches and training programs have come into being to accomplish
These include ongoing ministries like our First
where we have been bringing the life-changing presence of the Gospel
into a local First Nations community for several years. Our
Nations ministry also reaches out to other communities where we are
establishing a presence through our summer First
Nations Outreach and other visits throughout the year.
Another summer outreach opportunity is our Mission
program. It is designed for youth groups and provides all of
planning and training necessary so your youth group can have a
short-term missions experience without the stress of having to plan it
