YWAM El Salvador was founded on June 10th, 2002 by a pioneer team of four people from Cartagena, Colombia. The aim was to set up a permanent YWAM base in El Salvador because it was the only Central American country with no base.
We immediately began working with different churches and programs in El Salvador to assist them with ministries already in place. A Night Missions School (Escuela de Misiones Nocturna) was also established. The First Night School was in 2002. The first Discipleship and Training School (DTS) was held in 2003.
At the moment we continue supporting the local church and developing mercy ministries and evangelism as the pillars of our base. Additionally, we continue training, equipping and mobilizing individuals with the purpose of knowing God and making him known. Up to this point, we have run 10 night schools and 15 discipleship and training schools taking Salvadorians and people of other nationalities to have transcultural experiences in different parts of Central America, Belize, Mexico, Colombia, Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Some people that have taken schools with us are already in the mission field in areas such as Japan, Senegal, Spain, Sweden, Colombia, Nicaragua, etc.
