Project Overview

Our goal is to raise sufficient funds to purchase and renovate our current premises. We plan to turn our 5400sq ft office into a multi-purpose space that will boost our effectiveness in our mission and empower us to serve the local community better.
The facility is well located in the heart of Chai Wan (a brief walk from the MTR Station), and it holds great potential for further development. Owning it will enable us to improve it, maximise its use, and reinvest the financial resources that otherwise would be spent on rent, in growing expansion needs like housing for staff and students (All YWAM staff does not receive any salary and is responsible for raising their own support).
We believe this facility is not an end in itself but is the first of those that we will acquire through the coming years as we continue to grow into a fully-fledged missional community centre, training campus, and base of operations.
