Why We Exist
Over 90% of the world’s formally trained youth leaders are in the USA, ministering to only 2% of the world’s youth. YMI is dedicated to changing this statistic.
Our Guiding Principles
We want to be a part of a world wide movement committed to reaching the world’s youth for Christ by training youth leaders globally.
YMI was founded as God’s response to a pressing need recognized by Dr. Randy Smith as he ministered to youth workers in East Africa in 1988.
We all know how important it is to pray for our YMI missionaries, but sometimes we just don’t know how to pray for them.
