Before He ascended, Jesus left His disciples with this mandate: “Go into all the world and make disciples of all peoples…” Nearly 2,000 years later, that mandate remains unfulfilled, with an estimated 3.1 billion people in 4,500 people groups on earth who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ. As followers of Jesus Christ, we all have a role to play in seeing Jesus’ Commission fulfilled.
We believe it is time to finish what the Volunteers began, to raise up a new movement of college-students who will give up their lives to see the Lamb of God receive the reward of His suffering. Building on the legacy of the past, we see on the horizon a new Student Mission Movement to bring to completion what our forebearers began.
New England Alliance — The New England Alliance is a regional “network of networks” with a focus on prayer and worship, John 17 unity, revival and transformation, and mission and discipleship.
The Awaken Tour — To encourage student group communities across the nation to intercede for the promises of God on their campuses, grow in unity with the church, and to catalyze a missionary sending movement to the ends of the earth.
YWAM Boston — Creatively Connecting with the Emerging Generation for Transformed Hearts and Changed Lives. YWAM Boston is a missionary training and mobilizing ministry with a heart to reach people with the Gospel. We want to speak the timeless message of Christ to a new generation, making disciples and bringing glory to the Lord through our lives.
In 1886, 251 young men gathered for the first Northfield Student Conference. At the end of the conference, God had supernaturally broken in. 100 of the students committed themselves to world missions and what became known as the Student Volunteer Missions Movement was born. In a generation, this movement sent 20,000 missionaries overseas. Their watchword, “the evangelization of the world in this generation”, was a cry to fulfill the Great Commission in their lifetimes.
