One Nation in One Generation

MBI exists to help YWAM locations thrive and achieve the best possible kingdom results in their work. MBI is helping YWAM Battambang realize its vision for “serving the community, educating youth, and developing leaders” in Cambodia. The missionaries at YWAM Battambang believe they can “transform the nation in one generation.”

Body and Soul: Sharing God’s Practical Love

It’s no secret that poverty and hunger plague communities of people at home and abroad, from rural villages to inner cities to drought-stricken and war-torn nations. YWAM missionaries know feeding and caring for impoverished men, women, and children is a powerful part of its mandate to make God known.

Security and Success in Missions

Global YWAM missionaries sometimes find themselves overwhelmed by needs and circumstances beyond their control despite diligent efforts. MBI provides the practical help and training they need to thrive in the face of diverse challenges. The ministries of YWAM Tijuana and YWAM Ensenada in Mexico were suffering from high-level theft, riots, and cartel activities. They reached out for help from MBI’s Mission 91.

How do you engage the nations for Christ on a global scale? By filling a child’s belly, rescuing a trafficked human being, sharing the gospel with someone, or building a home to shelter a family in need.

LIFT: Tools for Missionaries

Missions service is about more than just preaching the gospel, feeding the hungry, or rescuing refugees. Today’s missionaries must also navigate travel, technology, and global connectedness—and the complex laws that govern them. MBI offers a unique professional and contextualized service called LIFT to help YWAM missionaries crush the “big rocks” that sometimes hinder ministry.

A Time to Build

A Time to Build

As frontline YWAM missionaries continue to make God known to the least, the last, and the lost, Mission Builders International is there to support them, providing YWAM campuses with the services and practical help they need to stay healthy and fulfill their callings long-term. Now, we’re taking our commitment to a higher level. Planning is underway to build MBI’s Mission Lodge hospitality center to engage YWAM missionaries, volunteers, students, and visitors more fully.
