Core Values

We are: Rooted in Community, Fed by The Word, Fueled by The Spirit

We are pioneering YWAM base in the Italian Alps. We love Jesus and it’s our heart's desire to know God better and make His name known in Trentino, in Italy and the nations. As we do this, we are called to be:

Rooted in Community

“Go and make disciples of all nations!” - Matthew 28:19

Making disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus implies relationship. Relationship with God and relationship with others. God’s desire for his creation has always been to start a family and to build community. When we accept Jesus as our Saviour and Lord we are welcomed back into the global family of God and our earthly families and communities of faith are supposed to be reflections of that eternal family. Here at YWAM Trentino we worship together, pray together, have fun together, enjoy God’s creation together and see each member of the community flourish and grow into the person that God has intended them to be. We choose people over projects, we choose to love first, and challenge each other to live a life of adventure and fruitfulness, repentance and forgiveness, joy and creativity, and to be ready to welcome new people into God’s family wherever He sends us.

Fed by The Word

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all Creation!" - Mark 16:15

As we step out and share the Good News of the Lordship of Jesus with all of His creation we want to continue to be nourished by the Word of God. Jesus said: "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.” We believe the Bible is the Manual for God’s creation and it feeds us spiritually, challenges us practically and heals us emotionally and so much more. We believe in a holistic Gospel that is Good News for every creature and all of Creation. We believe God speaks through his written Word, the Bible, as well as by His Spirit and we go where He sends us, we do what He speaks to us, and we accomplish His dreams for our lives by the power of his Word.

Fueled by The Spirit

“Go to the ends of the earth, by the power of the Holy Spirit!” - Acts 1:8

Our lives with God are a continuous adventure of being drawn into His presence and being sent out in His power. “Who can know the thoughts of a man except for the man himself? In the same way, no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” It is the Spirit of God who leads us into all Truth, who leads us into freedom, who makes known to us the secrets of the heart of God, who directs us, fires us up, spurs us on, breathes life into us, leads us and fuels us for the mission he has called us to, all from a place of worship and intimate adoration of the One who created us to live our lives with joy and fruitfulness.
