About Us

We are simply a bunch of friends, walking with Jesus and living out His dream together

Reinier Blijleven, Base Leader

YWAM Amsterdam is an urban community of followers of Jesus. We are all on a journey to know God better and to make Him known in Amsterdam and across the world, through a diverse group of teams and training programmes.

YWAM Amsterdam is a part of the global missions movement Youth With A Mission (YWAM), who desire ‘To know God and to make Him known’ in every nation on the earth. YWAM has been working in Amsterdam since 1973 and now has several locations around the country.



With over 40 years of innovation in ministry, YWAM Amsterdam continues to be a birthplace for new initiatives to reach the world with the love of Jesus.



YWAM Amsterdam’s ministry happens right outside of the front door due to the base’s unique locations in the heart of Amsterdam.


Community driven

YWAM Amsterdam consists of a group of people walking together, passionately following Jesus as a multicultural and diverse family.
