About Us

Our Beliefs & History

Youth With A Mission Pittsburgh was founded in 2001 by Doug and Debra Tunney. They dreamt of an opportunity for the church of Pittsburgh to be prepared for and mobilized towards the mission field. Their vision was to reach the world for Christ by equipping believers with a relevant message and an effective tool set. YWAM Pittsburgh has since developed into a movement of missionaries passionate to see God’s desire for all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

 

OUR MISSION

To create, equip and enact reproducible evangelistic methods that introduce people to a relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to understand the heart of lost people and respond with relevant models to reach them with the gospel.

 

OUR BELIEFS

We of Youth With A Mission believe that:

  • The Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is God’s son
  • People are created in God’s image
  • He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ
  • Although all people have sinned and come short of God’s glory, God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ
  • Repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us
  • God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth
  • The Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ’s last commandment, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15).

 

PROGRAMS OFFERED

We offer many courses and programs to see this vision fulfilled. Our four main programs are the Discipleship Training School, Joshua Generation, Mission Adventures, and Ministry Bridge School. We also provide year-round trainings and outreaches for groups and churches.

OUR ULTIMATE GOAL

As long as we have breath, we long to accomplishment Christ’s last commandment: “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15).  

Our lives belong to the Lord and in the end, we will do whatever it takes, go wherever the Gospel is unheard and try the untried in order to bring people to the heart of God.
