What Makes Our Mission Trips Unique?

Full Service

Our experienced staff cover all the bases – food, training, housing, outreach set-up, translation, supplies and everything else. We want to empower you as a youth leader and/or parent by doing the leg work for you so that you can minister to your students. You show up with your kids, we’ll handle the rest!


You won’t go unprepared. We will equip you and your team with proven tools so you can express the Gospel across cultures. Not only will we prepare your hands, our training will prepare your hearts for all that God intends to do in and through your group.


You will do a wide variety of ministry including evangelism, mercy ministries, service projects, and children’s ministries. Jesus teaches us that when we lose ourselves for His sake, that’s when we really find out who we are. When you go on a Mission Adventures outreach, you will lose yourself in serving others.

Teens Can Change the World

Mission Adventures is a hybrid leadership camp and missions trip led by a team of experienced missionaries who believe teens and families can change nations. David was only 17 when he killed Goliath. Samuel was only 8 when he heard God’s voice and started leading a nation. And Esther was only 15 when she saved her people from genocide.

We believe that the same God of David, Samuel and Esther is waiting to unleash His miracles in this generation. Teens and families alike will grow in their character and leadership. They will learn how to hear God’s voice. They will see and experience things that they never imagined. And their hearts will break with the things that break God’s.

Their experiences in Mission Adventures will prepare them to make a difference back home with their friends, their family, their school, and their world! As others observe their lives, they will desire their personal walk with the Lord, their love for the lost, their aggressive faith, their trust & obedience, their self-discipline, their teachable spirit, and their willingness to serve.

International – Nicaragua

International Mission Adventures trips are only for those High School age and older.

Come to Nicaragua and be a part of working among the youth and the poor! We will be in the town of Diriamba, about an hour from the capital Managua. YWAM has been working in this town for almost 40 years, and YWAM Nicaragua will be our host for this outreach. You will have the opportunity to: work in poor barrios (neighborhoods), distribute Bibles, pray for people we meet as we walk through the barrio, children’s ministry (drama, puppets, music, sports), and evangelism.
