Why Youth With A Mission in Reno?
Reno is an epicenter of spirituality. Many people may not realize that their spirit hungers, but it does and searches for whatever may satisfy that hunger. Individuals are drawn here because Reno has many counterfeit ways to feed the hunger of the spirit. One may consider Burning Man, an art festival in Blackrock Desert, as a sign of the growing hunger as an example of this.
This hunger of the human spirit for fulfillment is only matched by God's hunger. God greatly desires to root out all deceptive forms spirituality and replace it with His Spirit, his true nourishment which will enrich all of Reno.
YWAM Reno is a response from God’s heart to fulfill this hunger. We have come to set the table with fine heavenly delicacies which will initiate holistic growth using a customized strategy for Reno.
What is YWAM
Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”) We unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known. Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions.
Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people aged 9 to 90. We currently have tens of thousands of staff (called “YWAMers”) and we work in thousands of teams and locations. One of the joys of participating in YWAM is to work with people from many nations.
