About Us

Youth With A Mission (YWAM)

Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, committed to “Know God and Make Him Known.”

Launched in 1960 initially to give young people an opportunity to be involved in missions (an unusual idea at the time!), YWAM has since grown into a multi-generational global movement with over 1,100 operating locations in 180 nations around the world. Decentralised, but bound together by relationship, shared vision and values, our three primary modes of action are evangelism, discipleship and mercy ministry.

YWAM Gateway

We are a non-profit Christian organisation in Hong Kong, committed to knowing God and making Him known in every area of society. Our mission is to Gather, Equip and Mobilize believers across the nations and the generations through the strategic Gateway City of Hong Kong.
 
As an international mission centre, we provide year-round local and global outreach opportunities and quality training in the areas of missions, children, youth and families, character and leadership development since 2006.
 
Based in the Chai Wan district of Hong Kong Island, we are a multigenerational community of missionary staff and students from many nations and church backgrounds, led by Pastors Diego and Andrea Servant. We are part of the global YWAM (Youth With A Mission) family of ministries.

Being Community

We are a multigenerational community of staff and students from many nations and church backgrounds, sharing life, not just service together. Together we eat meals, seek God, live in a variety of shared housing, and are constantly strengthened by the gifts and experiences of others. Simultaneously, we value the individual, seeking to empower and equip them, whilst recognizing their unique gifts and calling.
Our community is based in the Chai Wan district of Hong Kong Island.
Despite YWAM Gateway having over 10 years of ministry and training, we’re still very much a “pioneering” base! There is more God-breathed vision that has yet to be realized! And there is always room for new initiatives, new vision and further development. There is a place for you!

Our Story

Gateway was founded in 2006 in Hong Kong by Ps. Dale Kauffman, founder/president of King’s Kids International (KKI), a ministry of YWAM. We started as a convening missions mobilization strategy of KKI, primarily through the Gateway Camp and Outreaches and over these many years in Hong Kong Gateway has evolved and is continuing to grow into a vibrant YWAM missionary community.

Accountability
