Overview

The Twin Cities area is rich in diversity. There are over 700,000 internationals (first and second generation immigrants & refugees) who speak more than 200 different languages. The Minneapolis/St. Paul area boasts the largest Hmong, Somali, and Oromo (Ethiopian) population in the U.S. It also has the second largest Tibetan and Liberian concentrations. Of all the internationals living in our backyard, 88% of them remain unreached.

Outreach Opportunities

There is a unique opportunity to reach the nations right here in our city. Jesus calls us to be the “light of the world” and for the past 12 years, YWAM Minneapolis has been committed to shining His light here in the Twin Cities area.
We invite you to come and establish a greater brightness in our backyard. You will have many unique opportunities to interact with a wide variety of culture. Help tutor Latino youth, teach English to Somali adults, and run a kids club for Asian children. Engage the forgotten by sharing conversations with the homeless, praying for the sick, and packaging food for the hungry. The opportunities are plentiful and the workers are few. Come and be a part of what a few can do for God’s Kingdom!
