YWAM Vienna

YWAM Vienna is a young and dynamic mission training center.

Our heart is all about Jesus, discipleship, and mission.
Our team is dedicated to sharing the gospel in relevant ways with all people, no matter social class or
nationality. With tools such as Discipleship Training School, seminars, workshops, and practical mission
work, we equip our students to be warriors for their faith. We also participate in meetings, corporate
prayer, and relationship-building opportunities to strengthen unity within the body of Christ
YWAM Vienna aims to share Jesus through a committed lifestyle, evangelistic events, outreaches, and
mercy ministries. Because we deeply value our relationships with local churches and other Christian
ministries, we make sure to partner with them regularly in prayer and service.


The YWAM Vienna office also serves as the YWAM Austria National Office.
