Mytilini, Lesvos, Greece

©2019 YWAM Lesvos



Do you desire a deep and genuine relationship with God?

Are you ready for the adventure of diving into practically learning

how to live your life fully for God?

YWAM Lesvos is committed to training and rising up the next wave of radical missionaries.


This year long program is designed for those who are adventurous and ready to commit to stepping outside their comfort zone. People who desire growing in faith, character and a pull towards longterm missions. You will be prepared to serve God cross-culturally on the front-lines as God’s ambassadors for truth and light.


Through in-depth study & application, you will discover what it means to apply that in fully following Jesus. You will gain vision for your life and the specific way God is calling you to live FULLY for Him.


As you discover the Mediterranean island life of Lesvos, Greece and jump across the water into the Middle Eastern life of warm hospitality, you will gain the tools to reach other cultures with the Gospel.

Come join us for a year of growth and equipping that is centered around two main things



You will learn God’s heart for you and for all people

Knowing how to follow His will

Knowing your God breathed purpose

Gaining tools and knowledge to prepare you for a long-lasting ministry

Grow your confidence in sharing the Gospel

Understand how to enter into ministry with a holistic approach




The aim of the DTS is to better discover God's call and meaning on your life.

Knowing God is crucial in missions because we strive to reflect who God is. If we don’t truly know who God is, who we are and why we were created then we cannot share this with others. We must first know God before we try to help others understand Him.

The Lecture Phase

Duration: 12 weeks

Lecture phase is designed to help you know God in a direct and genuine relationship with Him through experiential learning.


We will spend three months learning from different speakers through their knowledge and passion for God. We will focus on getting to know God’s Nature and Character, how He speaks to us, and how to view the world through a Biblical context etc. We will also create an atmosphere where community is developed through times of intercession, worship, and friendship!


As we focus on the refugee situation here in Greece, we will begin your cross cultural experience from the start setting aside a weekly time of refugee ministry around Mytilene.

The Outreach Phase

Duration: 12 weeks 

After you have completed your lecture phase you will go into the Middle East to apply all you have learned by entering into a community of peoples who have little to no exposure to the Gospel. 


We believe this is the time for us to actively respond in love for the lost.

Outreach is your opportunity to reach out and ultimately impact the lives of those who have never heard.


Perhaps you will be distributing supplies to a large scale refugee camp, or sipping a cup of tea with a remote people group in the desert, or teaching English in a children’s school. Here you can share the good new of Jesus Christ and come alongside a community putting love into action to see large scale transformation. 

 “Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”

Psalms 96:3

Now you've completed phase've stepped into a relationship with God much deeper than ever before. With a solid foundation we begin building upon this by giving you tools that will equip you for a life of missions where ever you are called to go.

The Lecture Phase

Duration: 12 weeks

Practical application starts during your SOME lecture phase. Alongside weekly lectures you will be engaging in weekly evangelism, working with refugees, and pioneering local discipleship groups.

All to equip you in growing your confidence in sharing the Gospel, practical application with the people your heart is burdened for, and experience pioneering new ministries. All of these skills are ESSENTIAL for long term missions.

The Outreach Phase

Duration: 12 weeks

Now you know who God is, you know His love and desire for all people to know this same thing. You've been equipped to make a long lasting impact on a community, grown in leadership skills and boldness sharing the Gospel, plus you have an in depth understanding of the Middle East.

For the final phase of your year of missions you will return to the Middle East. Only this time you will enter with a holistic view of how to come back with a strategic understanding of how to impact that community for Christ. 

Our hope is that by the end of your Year of Missions that you will be able to confidently walk into whatever God is calling you to do.


Perhaps God will call you to live as a full time missionary among a remote people group in the Middle East, to work with refugees in your city, serve in your local church or bring Christ to college students where you attend. Regardless of the calling, this year of in depth growth and intimate training will launch you into whatever life brings. You will be an all in Christ follower wherever you go!
