YWAM/King's Kids Winnipeg
Raising up the next generation

The start of YWAM

It all started when a 20-year-old American college student, who was in the Bahamas on a singing tour, spent some time in prayer. As he leaned back in his bed and looked up, he saw what he called a "mental movie." He saw waves on a map. The waves turned into young people, going to every continent, sharing the good news about Jesus. "Was that really you, Lord?" he asked.
This radical idea, that young people could be missionaries, stayed with this young man, Loren Cunningham. Four years later, in 1960, he started an organization with that idea expressed even in its name: Youth With A Mission. Today, Youth With A Mission (YWAM) has grown into one of the world's largest Christian mission organizations.

King's Kids is a ministry of YWAM, committed to leading children, teenagers and families into a proven knowledge of God and together make Him known to all peoples. We believe in the spiritual capacity of children and young people to minister to the Lord and others out of their own intimate relationship with God. We provide opportunities for children, teenagers, and families to be linked together in fulfilling the Great Commission.

YWAM/King's Kids Winnipeg

Since 1996 we have been helping young people engage in missions at home and overseas. Our teams have drawn young people and families from all corners of North America and other countries, mobilizing them in missions in Mexico, Quebec, Israel, and Rwanda.

In recent years our ministries have grown to include TESOL (training people to teach English as a Second Language), providing strategic leadership to renewal ministries in Canada, and the publication of books and on-line resources to equip those who are releasing young people in ministry.

Our teams have engaged in performing arts, service projects (like building a mud hut for a widow with AIDS) and, most recently, establishing a recording studio in Rwanda!
