Welcome to Our Family

Building the Kingdom

YWAM EP-J has a long history here on the border and is committed to see God’s promises fulfilled for Juárez, El Paso, and the nations. Through caring for a child, building a home, discipling a young person, or teaching a class, we are building the Kingdom of God in our community. Every act of obedience and service to the Lord is a building block.

However, you won’t be building on your own! We look to offer a supportive, relational community for our volunteer missionary staff, as we work together to bridge nations, cultures, and lives.

Staff Opportunities

You can work in any of these areas short-term from one week to one year; however, to be on staff at YWAM El Paso-Juárez you must complete a DTS.

Faith & Finances

Every YWAM worker, including the founder, Loren Cunningham, raises enough funds to meet his or her own financial needs. For most people in YWAM, these funds come from friends, family, and churches who contribute financially. Other YWAM workers rely on their own savings, part-time jobs, foreign employment, small businesses or even–in the case of some of our older staff–pension income.

YWAM has purposely chosen to emphasize personal support raising as the primary means of funding for our staff. Although we recognize there are many other valid ways of financing ministry, the way we have chosen is based on Biblical principles and has enabled us to include tens of thousands of people each year from over 130 countries in the task of fulfilling the Great Commission.

It is also a financial model that enables many important ministries to exist in our world today. Just as the staff of a church or a community service organization relies on donations to pay their salary, so our staff also rely on financial partners to meet their financial needs.

We believe, and have experienced many times, that personal support raising provides many benefits to our staff. It often creates a close bond between the financial partner and the worker on the field, it helps our workers experience God’s faithfulness in tangible ways, and when combined with a commitment to pray as well as to give, it provides powerful teamwork that results in encouragement for our workers and supernatural blessing on our ministries.
