As YWAM Poland, we are one body of Christ but spread out for this moment in different locations. We believe that now is God’s timing to raise up new generations of missionaries who will serve in this country and beyond.

Warszawa is the beautiful capital of Poland and the largest city in this amazing nation. It is also the seventh largest capital in Europe and a major tourist destination. Its political and cultural greatness is amazing and as YWAM we are delighted to be in the heart of it all. We are serving through a vibrant King Kids ministry working with teens and families and we also work with the Catholic Church in a ministry called “House in the Father’s Arms”. We have a big heart for unity in the Body of Christ.
This historical and cultural city in the heart of Europe has so much to offer and many opportunities for ministering the Gospel. Being a modern, international and university city, our YWAM missionaries have thrived here for more than 30 years.
We have a great children’s ministry in partnership with the local church and cooperate with a shelter for the homeless. We run discussion groups for high school and university students exploring the times in which we live. Scripture provides coherent answers and helps to ground our sense of reality.
In the beautiful region of Podkarpatski we find the city and capital of the Rzeszow area. An ancient and traditionally Jewish city, is today a university town with students from all over the world. Being so close to Ukraine and Belarus it is closely connected to its neighbors.
YWAM started here in 2015 in partnership with YWAM Ukraine. Our focus is on children and families at risk and we serve through mercy ministry to families who are low-income, fostering and immigrants. We do training with foster parents, children’s workers and school teachers.
This picturesque little town in the southwestern part of Poland is home to another of our Kings Kids teams and they serve with a local church. There are great opportunities waiting here to be pursued.
YWAM has been ministering here along side the local church since 2016 through worship and children’s ministry. Football is a large part of our life and coaching has a great avenue for ministry.
A Brief History of YWAM Poland
YWAM has been working in Poland since the mid 70’s through individuals and teams that partnered with local churches and Christian movements. In 1990 the first DTS was run in the nation and by 1992 YWAM had a staff of 20 people. The following year YWAM Kings Kids was established, impacting the lives of hundreds of children and their families. This early investment and foundation has helped to shape and deepen our ministries that carry on today.
