16 Nations, 34 locations, and many amazing people
The Central European region stretches from Poland in the north to Greece in the south, and from the Black Sea in the east to the Adriatic Sea in the west. With a population of 134 million people, this is a diverse and culturally colorful area. YWAM Central Europe is comprised of 16 beautiful nations, all of which are filled with unique people groups, landscapes, and cultures. Throughout this region, we have both large missional communities, as well as small teams of missionaries – some of which have been serving their communities for decades, while others are currently in the process of pioneering. Amongst our many locations, you will find many Discipleship Training Schools (DTS), secondary schools with YWAM’s University of the Nations, as well as a myriad of ministries in every shape and form.
YWAM has a decentralized structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through training, conveying the message of the gospel, and caring for those in need.
We long to see the people of Central Europe fully alive and redeemed, walking in their true identity and intimacy with Jesus, and uniquely influencing the nations with the gospel for the kingdom of God.

I absolutely love it when dreams become reality, don’t you? In October, a dream of mine became a reality… In recent years, God has been stirring something up in YWAM Europe. “That’s nothing new,” you may say. “We’re YWAM! God is always stirring something up!” Yes,...
Greece is a place where the unreached meet the Christian world. As well as established churches, we also have ministry work among refugees coming from the Middle East that never heard the gospel before. But, there are also many other Muslim populations elsewhere...
