LIVE in Community
We're a passionate community from across the world, coming and going to the nations, sharing our passion for Jesus.
We work together to disciple nations to their God appointed destiny. Training young people to be missionaries that bring transformation to every sphere of life. We love to walk together under the guidance of the Holy Spirit; growing, being sharpened and filled with joy as we go out in His power.
Our Community Teams
We are passionate about..
The Lord leading us through personal relationship and corporate vision. That all would come from and be sustained by a lifestyle of prayer and praise.
We are always seeking new ways to express and share the gospel, even if it is different than ever has been done before.
We aim to see practical and applicable courses designed for you to implement in relationship with God to your life and ministry.
We seek transformation and restoration for all which is yet to reflect the Kingdom of God, in Amsterdam and to the world.
We communicate the gospel as well as YWAM Amsterdam’s vision through various Social Media platforms. Our goal is to make others excited about Jesus, to introduce people to missions, and to build/maintain connections all over the world. We express our creativity through Content Creation, our Website, Social Media, Newsletters, Fundraising, and much more!
Prayer and Worship Department
As the Worship & Prayer Team we desire to glorify God and pursue His presence as people from all nations - anywhere and everywhere. We are dedicated to living a life of worship, prayer and intimacy with God 24/7 and helping raise up others to do so everywhere.
Staff Journey Department
The focus of Staff Journey is to serve our staff at YWAM Amsterdam. Our heart and vision is to see each individual in our community flourish; trained and equipped to do what they are called to do. We support staff through their application process, their arrival in the Netherlands and their discipleship and development whilst they’re part of our staff community.
Member Care Department
Member Care has the vision to see YWAM Amsterdam’s Staff walking in the fullness of its identity, dignity, and destiny through the provision of mentorship, teaching, accountability, and pastoral care primarily for the Base and the city of Amsterdam through its in-reach and outreach focus. Our prayer is that all may know the hope to which he has called us and understand the riches of his glorious inheritance for the Saints.
The accounting team analyses, presents and reports about the financial information of YWAM Amsterdam in order to enable the organization to look towards the future in order to invest in our work.
The team ensures that all transactions are conducted in accordance with the laws, and are timely and appropriate for the preparation of financial statements.
We have an amazing opportunity to teach and release people into building God's kingdom. That requires builders and buildings. These historic structures need some love every day as well as capital improvements to transform them to meet the growing needs of our community. If you are handy, we have a place for you. Gezellig!
The kitchen here at YWAM Amsterdam serves over 1,000 meals a year to hundreds of missionaries. The team behind the kitchen supports YWAM Amsterdam in a very practical way, by providing breakfast, lunch and dinner each day to our staff, students and visitors.
More than organizing events, it's an opportunity to serve the base, ministries and its people to see God given vision and calling become a reality. It looks like serving practically and leading spiritually to see this base step into what God has called it to be.
Hosting Teams Team
Looking for an outreach location or wanting to step out as a church, youth or friend group? We love to have teams over at our base. Go out on the streets or join alongside our ministries, see God's heart for this city. We can offer housing, food and program for groups of up to a 100 people.
We love to receive people from everywhere and make them feel part of our community. As a hospitality team our goal is to ensure that each guest feels welcome here at De Poort.
The Anchor is the cafe on our main campus in Amsterdam. As the Anchor Team we create a welcoming space and tasty drinks. We aim to have our cafe as a place to build community.
The reception team is welcoming the people who are coming in as our guests, students, and full time workers in De Poort building. We are the first contact by meeting people face to face, answering the phone, writing emails, and helping people to get in touch with the right people in our community. We love people and desire to be hospitable!
