Youth With A Mission (YWAM) 
Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to knowing God and making Him known everywhere. Since YWAM’s beginning vision of sending waves of young people into the nations in 1960, we have grown to 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000 people of all ages. YWAM SALEM specifically focuses on training and sending both long term and short term missionaries around the world.  

Ministry Overview
Melissa leads Mission Adventures in Salem- a short term missions program for youth groups designed to expose them to missions, train them in how to share their faith and give them opportunity to share Jesus! In the Mission Adventures off season Melissa works with training schools, engages in outreach both locally and abroad, and supports the overall campus vision of training missionaries through various roles and discipleship. 

Prayer Requests
• An ear constantly tuned to Holy Spirit’s guidance and wisdom.
• Open doors for youth to share Jesus in our community as we face increasing opposition.  
• Creativity in engaging young people. 
• Necessary funds and prayer support to sustain a very long term life of full time missions.
