Youth With A Mission Sendai

YWAM is a global movement, full of young people who are driven by a passion to know God and make Him known. We have been making waves here in Japan since 1975, and Tohoku (north-east Japan) since 2018!

Who we are

Permission to dream, permission to go.

How to begin

Start with the Discipleship Training School (DTS). Spend six months centring your life in God. Seek personal breakthroughs. Stretch yourself by serving God in a cross-cultural setting.

In order to come join us in Sendai as staff, you will have to have completed a DTS somewhere in the world. Sadly, we do not currently run DTS in Sendai, but we hope to in the future! You can find more information about DTS on the YWAM.org website:

The harvest is plentiful.

Join us in Sendai

After the Discipleship Training School, journey alongside a community of people who desperately want to serve Jesus in North-East Japan with their whole lives.

Invest in learning the Japanese culture and language, desiring to demonstrate the Gospel to the unreached millions you will encounter every day. Become like a Japanese, to win the Japanese (1 Cor. 9.20).

Feeling called to Japan? Consider coming to Sendai either for a few weeks, a couple of years, or longer!
