Mission Adventures – 2018

The Vision

Through short-term missions, Mission Adventures seeks to partner and serve local churches. We believe that we will fulfill the Great Commission by instilling a passion in each participant for lifetime involvement in world missions.

“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what He requires of you. To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8

MA is a 14 day program during the summer.

To break it down?

Mission Adventures (MA) is a short-term team ministry in Youth With A Mission. We offer “Full Service” to you as a youth leader by providing tailor-made missions trip for youth groups. We prepare everything, so that your youth group can be the missionaries.


Mission Adventures starts with four days of training at YWAM’s center on Flekkerøy, close to the Kristiansand. The training includes things like teaching, worship, group gatherings, time with God and training in creative evangelism and team activities. This is an intensive “boot camp” where we prepare and equip for the missions trip.


After the training camp we go on a ten day outreach where the youth get to practice what they have learned. The program for the outreach in the different destinations is evangelism in various ways, prayer, practical work, visiting churches, house visits, handing out food to the poor, “treasure hunts” and much more (depending on the locations we go).

Every year we see a big change in the countries we visit, but also in all the youth. They push their limits, get motivated and inspired for missions and to share the gospel when they get back home!

Do you want to see your youth group grow, take new steps and acquire a deeper knowledge of God as their Lord? Then Mission Adventures is for you – it’ll change your group for life!

The price for the complete program will be between 5000 and 6000 Kroner per person dependent on the price of the flight tickets. This price includes housing, food, lecture and training, travel (including flights) and ministry. Notice! This price is calculated with the current flight ticket prices, that means if in case of a late sign up, the price might rise.

We require a deposit of 100 kroner per participant. This money will go into reservations of flight tickets and will not be refunded in case of withdrawal.

Be Staff

The Mission Adventures (MA) staff is a team of volunteer co-workers and full-time
workers. The volunteer workers are part of a network of people that has been involved with MA through previous years. The full-time workers are the ones working with this daily.


It’s possible to join MA as a volunteer during the summer. Every year we bring some co-workers to be MA leaders.

What does it mean to be staff?

As the staff of Mission Adventures you are a leader for the youth, and thus a role model for them. You will be helping to support, encourage, challenge and help them to grow in the tasks they face. This is also a unique opportunity for you to go out on a mission trip. You will take on new challenges as a leader and grow with God. We place great emphasis on learning by doing, practicing what has been taught. At the same time you will become acquainted with wonderful people, experience a different culture and make a difference both for those traveling together, and those you meet on outreach.

During the outreach staff will allocate areas of responsibility, which may be the
economy, practical work, child evangelism, treasure hunts, etc. There will bean outreach leader and 3 staff that will share the different responsibilities. We want to see you as a staff take on new challenges and grow in what God has given you.

On the staff training before the youth come to YWAM Kristiansand you will be trained in the role as staff. Therefore, we want to have a good dialogue with you in advance, so we can find out which tasks to give you, both during the training camp and outreach.
