Durango Campus

Our Durango campus is set just on the outskirts of the city.  At 1,900 meters, it is a mountain city full of opportunities for adventures in nature such as rappelling, hiking, camping and exploring. Our campus property is in the early stages of development with young trees where hammocks hang and open spaces providing restful devotional times or play times.  Nature proclaims the glory of God, and our campus in Durango reminds us of that!  One of the promises we have for this campus is from Psalm 37- “But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in the abundance of peace.”

While it is refreshing to be a little on the outside of the main population, we have a passion to know and be connected into the heartbeat of the city. We make intentional efforts to join in city and church events, serving local ministries, and to open our home and campus to believers and non-believers who want to “escape” the city and experience ywam fellowship and community. While Durango is set in the mountains, it’s no small town…with over 600,000 habitants it is filled with color, culture and always something to do.

Our heart is to see where God is moving and to say, “We’ll be a part!”. We want to engage and mobilize young people into missions, and desire to breathe life into the call of God they carry. We want to see the spheres of society transformed by passionate followers of Christ who don’t just follow the norm but fight for God’s truth to be shown in all areas of life. We will mobilize and empower missionaries to step out into Mexico and the nations declaring the gospel in diverse ways.

How fluent do I need to be in Spanish or English?

We are a completely bilingual campus! Meaning, speaking only Spanish or English will be more than enough.  If neither Spanish nor English is your first language, you just need to comprehend and/or speak one.  That being said, we’ve had students in the past that weren’t fluent in either of our languages, and they’ve been willing, amazing people that brought amazing life and culture to our base family. Pray about it! We don't want to hold you back if you're called here.
