Figuring out the whole YWAM thing doesn't have to be hard. Stick around and see how you can get involved! At YWAM Tuen Mun you can get involved in a few different ways: as a mission builder or volunteer, full-time staff, or through our internships.
Our local opportunities give you a chance to join a program anytime and help the community. Please check out this section.
Timeframe: 2 weeks - 3 months
Do you have a month or two free and want to jump into missions? Do you have a close relationship with Christ and want to get a taste of YWAM? Do you have a specific skill or willingness to help where needed in an international missions setting? If so, then mission building is for you!
Mission Builders join us full-time in a number of different areas around the base: kitchen, hospitality, maintenance, gardening, childcare, housekeeping, translation and other projects as needed. Because our community is relatively small, we work together closely to keep our programs and facilities at their best.
Timeframe: 4 months - 1 year
If you want to join as a full-time intern you can make a commitment from 2 weeks up to 1 year and there is no prerequisite of doing a DTS.
If you want to serve longer than a year, we require that you complete a DTS and then return as staff with a minimum 2-year commitment.
