As God reveals His heart for the nations, we want to build a bridge where both East and West are discipled, reconciled, and brought into life-giving identity and intimacy with Jesus, equipped and mobilized to uniquely influence the nations with the Gospel and Kingdom of God.

What does YWAM Athens do?


  • We have an intentional focus on prayer and worship, both as a team and in partnership with the local prayer houses and ministries.

  • We intentionally seek to serve alongside the whole body of Christ in Athens, including other local ministries and churches



We do street evangelism regularly, seeing many be healed in Jesus name as we pray and lay our hands on the sick.


We are currently doing weekly discipleship with refugees and have a desire to start a DTS for the Greeks and the refugees. In the future we want to establish micro-businesses as a tool for discipleship.


We work closely with other ministries with established refugee outreaches.  Recently, we helped establish a refugee drop-in center, where they can come and have tea and coffee, shower, laundry and childcare services, and receive teaching and discipleship training.


YWAM Athens is a pioneering team that arrived August 2015. At the moment our team consists of 4 adults and 4 children. In 2014 God started to speak to us individually about Athens about a ministry founded on prayer, worship, and service, without us knowing each other. He brought our two families together from different parts of the world, and we have been seeking God together and seeing a little bit of the wonderful plans He has for Greece. God has been speaking clearly over and over to us from Isaiah 61:

Journey DTS

Our unique Journey DTS will take you on a life-changing adventure. You will learn more about God and yourself. Experience other cultures and learn what it truly means to be a follower of Christ.

We have given this DTS name the “Journey”. With a different dynamic than the typical DTS; we will use the principle that Jesus used when he took the disciples out of the classroom and into the world to train them. Hands on discipleship combined with teaching as the disciples were on the mission field.

The spirit of the sovereign Lord is upon us! To proclaim GOOD NEWS to the poor, to BIND UP the broken hearted, to proclaim FREEDOM for the captives and RELEASE from darkness for the prisoners!
– ISAIAH 61:2 –


We have several short term teams coming every month to Athens, so please send us an email if you are interested. We do receive short term staff, but prefer that people will not come alone.


Any staff can be involved in prayer and worship, mercy ministry, evangelism, serving the ministries we are involved in. Depending on how long you will stay, you can be involved in discipleship training.


We want to see our team grow and are praying for people to join us! There is many possibilities to work and see Gods kingdom be extended in Athens!

Please contact us if you have any desire to join us in this amazing time for Greece! We have application forms ready for you!
