YWAM Perth Values Family

There is a uniquely genuine sense of family here at YWAM Perth. You can see it in everything from the demeanour of the staff, the way they celebrate birthdays, and their encouragement of community. This sense of family can make a huge impact on an individual.

From day one, every new student or staff is hit with a dose of family care as they are picked up and escorted from the airport to the base by a friendly staff member. Each day the staff and students are able to share meals together, spending time talking and connecting about their days or getting to know one another. Work duties are also shared throughout the base, and are conducted with intentional focus on working as a team and encouraging one another. Birthdays and other celebrations are also a big deal at YWAM Perth. There is a vibrant focus to intentionally celebrate and share life together. Furthermore, there is a consistent culture of relationship building and encouragement.

This is a huge ministry within itself because it mirrors what the “family of God” should look like.

Whether it be a new student, or a veteran staff member, there is a broad atmosphere of community and family. This is a huge ministry within itself because it mirrors what the “family of God” should look like. Many people may not have had a personally positive family experience, but in coming to YWAM Perth there is a great opportunity to reconcile that and to also adopt it as your own.
