Mission Builders

Do you have a heart to serve here?

If you have professional skills, great! If not, we will show you what to do.

Come volunteer with us! Mission building gives you a snapshot of what it is to live in a YWAM Base and to serve in missions. Mission builders serve in areas around the base with our staff and students, while being part of our community activities such as worship, intercession and community outreach. This is a full program where individuals work, have fun, fellowship, enjoy “family” meetings with worship and guest speakers, and can enjoy discovering beautiful Mazatlán each weekend you are with us.

Our Mission Builder volunteers work in positions where it greatly blesses the campus to meet the daily needs of the staff, students and teams that come through our gates. Our Mission Builders work hard and have fun. They truly are servants for the Lord and we love them!

The current areas of service include the kitchen, grounds, maintenance, housekeeping, administrative office positions, within the IT and media teams, preparing our medical ship, translation. 

Our volunteer program is a set commitment period of minimum 2 weeks up to 3 months, with specific arrival and departure dates, where you will serve in any of these critical departments on campus for the time you are with us. This program will be filled with fellowship and friendship where you can connect with other Christians from all around the world ~ a once in a lifetime experience!

Please note that there may be other serving opportunities available such as teaching English to the local community or working within other departments, when filling in the form to come and mission build please provide any skills or ministry and work experience you may consider relevant to your application.
