Locations

After attending our 4-day training camp, join a team lead by YWAM missionaries to one of the following locations. (You can sign up as an individual or as a group). Alternatively, if you feel God has placed a country on your heart, we'd love to help you set up an outreach there. We'll help you share the vision and gather a team.

Spain

Share the gospel along 355km of the Camino de Santiago in Spain! Build deep relationships and share with those exploring spirituality along the way. (3-31 July)
Thousands of people walk the Camino de Santiago each year for various reasons, including spiritual exploration. Like Jesus on the road to Emmaus, we want to walk alongside people for a portion of their journey and offer the great gift of salvation and fellowship!

Greece

Partner with local organisations serving the practical and spiritual needs of refugees. Build relationships and share hope. (3-31 July)
Although the refugee crisis no longer makes the front page of our newspapers, thousands of people are living in overcrowded camps in Greece having fled their homelands in search of a better life.

Albania

Join YWAM Durres on the beach! Reach tourists for Christ through creativity, worship, sports and Bible distribution, and partner with them as they train up local youth. (3-17 July)
People from all over the Balkans flock to Durres for their holidays. We want to give them a chance to hear the Good News and to impart a passion for mission to young Albanians.

Romania

Join YWAM Constanta in sharing Jesus’s love and care with holiday makers during the night and early morning. Connect, chat, and offer coffee and prayer. (3-17 July)
Every summer the beaches are flooded with young people looking for pleasure in alcohol, sex, and drugs. Our desire is to offer them an encounter with Jesus!

Moldova

Share God’s love and bring hope to the poorest country in Europe. (4-19 July)

The Netherlands

Spend time with the Justice House of Prayer team in the Hague, known internationally as the City of Peace and Justice. Share Jesus with locals and tourists visiting nearby Scheveningen beach. (3-17 July)
In 1958, thousands of people gave their lives to Jesus on Malieveld, a field in the middle of the Hague. We will spend some time each day interceding on this field, asking God to move powerfully in the Netherlands again.

UK

Partner with YWAM teams sharing the good news about Jesus with their cities.

France

Share God’s love with the city of Paris! Come and join us as we partner with local believers to bring transformation through prayer, worship, evangelism & performance. (19-31 July)
Paris Je t’Aime is an annual outreach run by YWAM France. There will be teaching each morning, neighbourhood outreach in the afternoons and open air performances in the evening.

?Your choice?

If you have a location on your heart we can support you in recruiting a team, finding suitable hosts/ ministry partners and making practical preparations. Send us an email if you’re interested!
You’ll be responsible for your team while on outreach, but we’ll provide training and debrief for your team in the UK at the beginning and end of the programme.

History

In 1885, seven Cambridge students left the UK to take the Gospel to Ch:na’s lost millions. For them this was a radical response to Christ’s call to “go into all the world.” One of the students was CT Studd, a world-famous cricketer and all seven had privileged backgrounds. Before departing, the Seven toured UK universities and when other students saw that these who “had everything” were “giving it all up” to sow their lives into missions, they were stunned. Hundreds were inspired to follow. Seventy years later another seventy students went out, inspired by the Seven to devote two years of the lives to international missions. Today, this wild call to follow Christ and to go into all the world, even unto the ‘ends of the earth’, is still going out. God is still calling. Will you follow?

The first few days of Call of the Wild will consist of training at a UK YWAM base. We will do our best to equip you to be effective for the kingdom of God. You will then depart to an outreach location where you'll work with your team to present the Gospel message in a way that serves the local people. This could vary from mercy ministry to street evangelism. After spending three weeks on the mission field you will come back for a time of debriefing and sharing your stories with the other teams. And those stories will be with you for the rest of your life.
