What is YWAM?

We are a part of the international Youth With A Mission (YWAM) movement.

About YWAM North Cascades

We are located in an iconic location between the pacific ocean and the Cascade mountains in the Northwest corner of the U.S. Situated strategically between Seattle and Vancouver. We are on a mission to impact the nations, seeing young people encounter Jesus and then go out as His ambassadors: going to unreached peoples where Jesus is needed the most.

Most of the people who come through our doors will go back to college or to the work force but with a sense of purpose and on mission. Others will join us to build the movement.

Through all of this we’re also building a missional, outreach mindset right where we’re at so that it’s not just global, it’s not just local but it’s both of these things together building a missions movement to reach the unreached.


Our Mission

We are called to pursue God together as a discipleship community and make Him known through local outreach and the mobilization of young people to unreached peoples.

Our Location

Lynden is an incredible place. It’s a small town of 12,000 sitting comfortably between Seattle and Vancouver with great natural beauty and a commanding view of the Cascade mountains. Lynden is known for its many churches and rich Christian roots. Downtown, where YWAM is located, is dotted with coffee-shops, bakeries, and novelty shops. The surrounding area is filled with dairy, raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry farms.
