Best YWAM Locations

Maybe you’re looking for the cheapest ywam dts? Maybe you’re looking for a base that focuses on ministry to orphans and widows? Or you might have a passion for sports or surfing. There are YWAM locations for all of those things.

Biggest YWAM Bases

It is hard to say where the biggest bases are as each YWAM ministry functions separately and the amount of staff and students changes every quarter.

Where was the first ywam base?

YWAM’s First Training Program was in Chateau-d’Oex, Switzerland when 21 students gathered in 1969 for YWAM’s first in-depth training program, the School of Evangelism.
