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.
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.
