YWAM Chico 

If you’ve finished your DTS and feel that God is calling you to full time missions then we may have an opportunity for you to join us.

Our staff are from diverse backgrounds, nations and are all ages with many singles and families living together in this beautiful canyon. We share a passion for serving God, making Him known locally and internationally and we are part of a community that trains and equips the body of Christ to make disciples in the ends of the earth.

YWAM Chico is a very unique campus. We run training schools, we’re involved in local and international ministries and we steward our large conference center. Throughout the year many YWAM and outside groups come to our campus for camps and conferences.

Our staff spend time each week in community activities (worship, prayer and intercession) and serving the base in an area that best suits their skills and our current needs. Our staff also participate weekly in one of our local ministries. Throughout the year we provide training and development opportunities for our staff as well as local and international short term outreach trips.

Most of our staff live on the campus, we will discuss housing with you in more detail detail during the application process.

At YWAM Chico we have 3 on-boarding dates a year for our new staff to come.  This gives us an opportunity to orient you well and introduce you into YWAM Chico life.
