Mission Builders

A helping hand

Mission Builders are skilled and unskilled volunteers who want to contribute to the advancement of the Kingdom of God by using practical skills to build facilities and serve Youth With A Mission bases around the World. At any given time, our number of volunteers working at Southlands can be hard to count. Friends of YWAM partner with us in many ways, from driving buses and repairing doors to working in the kitchen and helping lead Kings Kids outreaches, working on fundraising ventures or helping out with the accounts. These people are an invaluable part of our ministry who join with us to pray, worship, work and have fun.

Because of our varied facilities, we have many renovating and building projects going on throughout the year, so if you have skills in building, plumbing, carpentry, painting or would just like to give us a hand then we would love to hear from you. You can come for three weeks or three months. Stay at one location or spend a little time at each. It is a great opportunity to mix with people from many countries of the world, to hear more of what is happening in missions and to really give us a valuable, needed helping hand.

We are also in need of people who can train young people who are coming through our schools in the areas mentioned above. The more skills you can multiply the better. So if you enjoy working alongside people and inputting into their lives, then this can be a great opportunity.
An amazing experience

Your skills are valuable

People with catering/cooking skills sometimes come in during our training schools to provide nutritional well-balanced meals to our hungry hordes. A well-appreciated and very important ministry.

Anyone who is over 18 and loves to give a hand in any shape or form may apply. Just give us a call or email if you would like any more information. We love welcoming volunteers from all over the world to join with us in helping people. If you are interested in missions and have a heart to serve, and have a few days weeks or months spare then Mission Building is for you! Whether you are skilled or unskilled, then we have a project for you! You’ll be amazed at the contribution you make, the friendships and the adventures you have, even in just a short time. Mission Builders have served in everything from helping in the kitchen, building repairs or even IT and communications. Other opportunities include hospitality, reception, and administration.
