Youth With a Mission (YWAM) was founded in 1960 and is an international and interdenominational missions organization. Loren Cunningham was the driving force in creating this organization. His vision was seeing a "wave" of young people going into the whole world to bring people the gospel and make a positive difference in the world. The motto of YWAM was and is:

2. Evangelization and
