YWAM Central Europe

Area Circle Team (ACT)

The Area Circle Team (ACT) is comprised of leaders from various YWAM communities within Central Europe.  Their role is to provide broad support for our staff, leaders, and teams. They hope to inspire vision and encourage new ministry by empowering and releasing our staff.  They are committed to praying for our teams, providing a spiritual covering, and giving input and help when needed.  They also facilitate networking and gathering our staff from the 16 nations of Central Europe.  The ACT helps ensure good communication among our teams, and they represent YWAM Central Europe both inside and outside of YWAM.

The Core Circle (CC) is made up of a few leaders from within the ACT.  Their role is to convene the ACT for meetings and gatherings, to help ensure that the ACT mandate is being fulfilled in a healthy and effective way, and that boundaries and delegations are clear for the various working groups and Circles within the CE Area.  The CC also represent the CE Area to the European Leadership Team.

Our Vision

Our greatest vision is to know God and make Him known.

There are many locations, teams, and ministries within YWAM Central Europe who have wonderful vision and diverse, God-given gifts. Our goal is to champion current leaders and raise up new ones through discipleship in order to see the Church grow in all of Central Europe.

We not only want to see growth in the people who are serving here from other countries, but also in the communities we are living in. It is our desire to see the locals mobilized for Christ!

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a new way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. ” Isaiah 43:19
