A Brief History

Youth With a Mission (YWAM) Reno was founded in 2017 with a focus on prayer and serving the city. In 2018, the focus shifted to youth ministry, specifically emerging adults. As YWAM Reno has developed, its mission has become more defined. The organization’s three focuses – youth, city ministry, and focused prayer – have solidified as YWAM Reno’s major pillars of ministry.

Empowering Missionaries, Transforming Lives

Our Mission

Our mission is to help people experience God’s peace by empowering them to live extraordinary lives.

Our Vision

Our vision is to transform ordinary Christians into extraordinary missionaries who can spread the message of God’s love and peace to the world. To accomplish this goal, we focus on three key pillars: emerging adults (aged 12-26), focused prayer, and outreach to unreached cities.

By investing in emerging adults, we can help shape them into individuals who can make a positive impact on the world. Our focused prayer pillar aims to empower ordinary believers to pray for extraordinary change in their communities. Lastly, our urban outreach pillar aims to transform ordinary cities into extraordinary communities defined by love, unity, and peace.
