About YWAM Chiang Mai


Who are we?

The ministries of YWAM Chiang Mai are as diverse as the YWAMer’s who make them happen, and have an impact locally, regionally and internationally. Home of Joy provides a home for abandoned children. Create Thailand uses arts and media to communicate the Gospel. The DTS, Create DTSShan DTS, and Business DTS provide training for disciples that will transform nations. Plus, we have several schools to prepare you for specialized ministry, including the School of Frontier Missions (SOFM) and the Visual Arts for Missions (VAM) course.

These are just a few of the ministries that make up YWAM Chiang Mai.

Due to the strategic location of the city of Chiang Mai, we are a hub for many of YWAM’s Transnational Ministries, including YWAM’s Business as Mission (BAM) team, Frontier Missions, and Create International.
