Ministry

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) was first established in Thailand in 1972. In 1979, YWAM became involved in ministering to the many thousands of refugees from Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, who were seeking shelter in Thailand. YWAM volunteers assisted refugees through medical care, vocational training, clothing distribution and other ways until 1995. In 1995, the refugee camps for indo-Chinese refugees were closed and the remaining refugees were repatriated to their home countries.

 

Presently YWAM has over 500 full time foreign and Thai staff, ministering in 23 locations. 

Our teams are involved in administration, distributing Christian music, training, evangelism, worship/music ministries, reaching out to university students, slum dwellers and the poor and needy of Thailand.

History

Although in the early part of this century, the Presbyterian missionaries saw growth occur in the Thai church, this began to level off after a few years. Then, during the 2nd World War, numbers declined, but began to rise again after the war ended when there was an influx of missionaries and new missions, e.g. OMF, New Tribes, WEC. However, it was not until the 1970s that any significant trends began to be established in terms of church growth.

 

Even though to be born Thai means to be born Buddhist, the average Thai person is not much more a Buddhist than many people in the Western world consider themselves to be Christian. Some rituals are followed by most people, but only a few follow all the rules of Buddhism. It seems that Buddhism has lost a lot of its attraction to the Thai people. The economic turmoil of the recent years has caused a new openness in the Thai people as many are looking for meaning in life besides materialism.

 

"The power of God is moving in Thailand, the darkness is lifting over Thailand it has never been so easy to lead a Thai person to Christ!"
