Connecting Christians to Frontline Missions

Who We Are

MBI (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

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

Where to from here?

You’re a graduate of a YWAM Discipleship Training School. You’ve only just begun “knowing God and making Him known.” You’re prepared to go anywhere and do anything for the sake of the call. So where do you go from here?

Good news! You’re eligible to volunteer with YWAM anywhere in the world and your volunteer service could lead you into the full-time mission work you dream about. Explore your options: YWAMers.

Helping YWAM locations thrive as they “know God and make him known.”

Together, we can get the job done.


MBI has allowed me to meet new people, help them with logistical needs, and minister to both staff and students. I have been able to not only serve in practical ways—cooking, cleaning, helping in the office, instructing home-schooled kids, and performing grounds keeping tasks—but I have been able to pray with people, intercede for the nations, encourage and instruct individuals and groups, and speak into people’s lives.                                                                                                                                                                Deborah S.
