YWAM 60th Anniversary online celebration

Published on: November 6, 2020

Below is an invitation from Loren and Darlene to the Y 60th Anniversary online celebration.

Dear YWAM Family,

Wow! It’s hard to believe that YWAM is 60 years old! As I have been writing my book Values Matter – Stories of the Beliefs & Values that Shaped Youth With A Mission, Loren and I have been recalling many of the stories of our early days, and it seems like they happened just yesterday. We rejoice as we reflect on God’s past faithfulness. But we don’t stop there! We look forward with great anticipation for all that He still has in His heart to do through Youth With A Mission – through both you and me! What a privilege to walk into the future with this amazing God we are privileged to know, love and serve!

Please join us online as we celebrate YWAM’s 60th anniversary, November 30 through December 4, 2020! We would like to invite you, your location and the entire YWAM global family to register here:

The theme is: “Until the Whole World Knows!” As you can imagine, Loren will sound a rallying cry to End Bible Poverty Now! Since 2003 Loren has been declaring that 2020 would be a year of great breakthrough for Bible engagement. We believe that – in spite of the global pandemic – great strides have been taken to realize the dream of ZERO Bibleless languages. But there is still more to be done! Together we will celebrate the victories won and prepare to complete the unfinished task – Until the Whole World Knows!

Together we will consider many other inspiring ways in which we can complete our call to know God and make Him known. I’m excited that during our 60th celebration we’ll be able to launch my book. It is currently being translated into 42 languages in preparation for this worldwide digital launch. I’ve written it thinking about the future, keeping the youngest YWAM’er and future generations in mind, to help us stay “mission true” as we reach out to the whole world.

Don’t miss this historic event – join us in celebrating God’s faithfulness and YWAM’s 60th Anniversary! Connect with your hearts prepared to receive from the Lord. It is when we gather together in faith – even virtually – that God shares with us the dreams and visions He has for the future!

Thank you for being a co-worker together with us in the call of God!

Darlene & Loren
