DURING THE WAR
During 2022, due to the war, we moved from a functioning YWAM ministry campus to a volunteer response movement.
All year long we had a huge focus on meeting the needs right in front of us: food, housing, warmth, evacuations and medical supplies

During 2022, due to the war, we moved from a functioning YWAM ministry campus to a volunteer response movement. As of January 2023, we are ‘re-opening’ YWAM Kyiv, shifting back to a YWAM Kyiv community. The leadership team in Kyiv will continue to give leadership and guidance.
We still have the same vision: YWAM Kyiv will focus on Kyiv, Ukraine and Eurasia. We devote ourselves to preaching the gospel, we cultivate empowered and missions-minded Christ followers, and we renew the lives of the broken.
We have temporarily suspended our regular circles and have created new circles based on our vision, in view of the current war.
Evangelism is the focus of this circle team. This circle goes into the villages and around Kyiv sharing the gospel of hope in Jesus. It includes praying with people, camps, and house visits especially during this time of war when people's hearts are ready to hear about a greater hope than this world.
Throughout the war, our staff have had a great opportunity to build relationships with many churches. We want to keep cultivating those relationships with an eye on the future schools we will be running, in order to recruit more DTS students and also bring more training to churches during and after the war is finished.
The needs around us are huge, but we can definitely help to bring hope and meet the needs of people. This circle distributes food bags, help with building homes, visit hospitals with medicine and other acts of mercy in the name of Jesus.
