children swiss asia With a heart for championing young people, YWAM strives to provide opportunities for the whole family to learn from God and follow Him. We recognize that kids and teens have beautiful gifts to offer, unique to them at their specific ages.


One of YWAM’s largest child-centered ministries is King’s Kids. With hundreds of programs all over the world, King’s Kids seeks to lead children, youth and families worldwide into a proven knowledge of God, bring God joy and together make God known to all peoples. The ministry provides year-round discipleship groups for children and outreaches for children and their families. These outreaches take place in the local community as well internationally, and feature arts, sports, or community development. A main emphasis of the outreach is on the discipleship of each young person in the team.
