Mission Adventures is an exciting, life changing opportunity for youth to grow in God, discover, and deepen in their God-given identity while living out what they've learned in a cross-cultural short-term outreach.
We have a passionate desire to see the next generation be equipped not just for a mission adventure, but be equipped for a life filled with everyday adventures with God! We love being a part of the transformation that happens to those that come through our Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) and Mission Adventures is just a little taste of what that's like. It’s really something powerful to come to a picturesque setting like Muskoka and meet God through nature and authentic community.
The word “community” has become so cliché, that we want to assure you that we are truly about family. It’s not just a cool word to us, but we truly care about being family to one another as God our Father would want us to be. We care about helping people feel welcomed, valued, important and cared for because that’s how God treats His children! We care about what God wants to do in each individual life and take our role of leadership seriously as He instructs us to do in the books of 1st and 2nd Timothy. We want you to leave this experience so in awe of God and His family!
WHAT TO EXPECT
exceptional for today and yesterday
For more than 50 years, YWAM has been continually training, equipping and sending out authentic Christ-like leaders into the nations to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We teach the importance of relationship with the triune God in all areas of life. Then, from a place of being loved by the Almighty, we can fully embrace our purpose of being His hands and feet.
In the first week of this program, there will be a thrilling camping trip where we’ll dive into the wilderness and into our theme for this year. The two remaining weeks will be full of dynamic Christ-based teaching, team-building activities, outdoor adventures, and outreach opportunities. Your days will be full of sports, worship, prayer, small groups, game nights and more!
YWAM is about God, community, fun and adventure. We want to equip youth to journey into this world with new gifts and a new sense of excitement for life!
Transformation and growth
One of the coolest things that happens during a short-term outreach like Mission Adventures is the growth that the participants experience. James 1:22-25 says that when we make ourselves available to God and follow His instructions and actions, we experience freedom and blessings. When we let go of ourselves-our own ideas, our dreams, our time and even our fears-and fully embrace who God has called us to be, we can richly bless those around us and experience true peace! There is no limit to what God can do in just two weeks! We are so excited to be a part of your growth in Christ and will cheer you on even through the challenges you will endure.
adventure is out there
One of the best things about our God is that He loves having fun! His creation is full of life, wonder, and excitement just waiting for you to discover! Together we are hoping to hit the trails on foot or on bikes, explore high ropes, paddle through quiet lakes and many other outdoor activities! If you are a fan of having a good time while growing your relationship with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit then this adventure is calling your name! Our hope is to bring true life and fun to every season, every place and every person. Only God can be this awesome!
“Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to His dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins. He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.” -Ephesians 1:4-8 NLT
This summer, we pray you will come to truly experience freedom. Freedom comes straight from God, once we join in union with Him we can have freedom from the bondage of our world -whether it be from depression, fear of man, bitterness, anger or shame-whatever! Because of what Jesus did for us, we can share our freedom with others! Come and join us as we dive into this adventure of living out our freedom in Christ!
"Doing my mission adventure was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made...when I went to do my mission adventure, I was struggling in my faith
and now I’m closer with God and have a better relationship with Him and can talk to him every day and know that I’m being heard and loved on and encouraged by Him."
