Connecting Christians to Frontline Missions

Who We Are

Mission Builders International is the volunteer placement branch of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a global organization dedicated to training and sending Christian missionaries since 1960. YWAM’s goal is “to know God and to make Him known.”

What We Do

Mission Builders International recruits short-term volunteers and matches them with global ministry opportunities within Youth With A Mission. Mission Builder volunteers “lift up the arms” of frontline missionaries  through practical, hands-on service.

From cooking to computer programming, gardening to construction, there are so many ways to help. My husband is a mechanic and I’m an avid gardener and cook. We’ve served all around the United States and are so glad we can be a part of mission work using the gifts and skills we already have. YWAM is a global ministry, so you can travel the world while helping others. John and Michele W.

It’s important to consider the leadership of an organization when assessing whether to volunteer, support, partner, etc. In the case of Mission Builders International, I have known and worked with the leaders for 20-plus years and am proud to call them friends and neighbors. They quietly go about their business with integrity. The result is a loyal and passionate following for their important work. Muffy T.

I’ve been at Mission Builders International as a full-time volunteer staff member for over two years. I have the unique opportunity to assist in the placement of volunteers from all corners of the world who want to serve in short-term missions. MBI makes it easy and safe for the volunteers and it opens the door to new horizons! Helping people to have a life-changing experience is an awesome job! Donna B.

We’ve been blessed to be donors of Mission Builders International for the past 15-plus years. They have a great network for tying together givers and goers to further the work of God’s kingdom. They excel at providing a good experience for all who participate. It has inspired us to continue as donors, making it possible for others to go! Don and Mary K.

Together, we can get the job done.


Go deep. Grow strong. Get equipped.
