Engage is a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), based in Kona, Hawaii, USA.

We are a group of people who have chosen to do life together in community, to grow in who God created us to be, and to learn what it means to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength. We serve the YWAM Kona campus, worship Jesus, pray, spend time in the Bible, enjoy adventures in Hawaii, laugh and enjoy being alive for such a time as this.

We run training programs to help people build deep foundations in their relationship with God, discover what they were made to do and GO do it. Come and join us for our next Discipleship Training School - the foundational course in Youth With A Mission.

We recruit, train and send teams of people to go to the far-flung corners of the earth. Currently we are preparing to send long-term teams to South and Central Asian countries. These teams are on a journey to get equipped, build family and make an impact.

We are part of a much bigger ministry family at the YWAM Kona campus - one that is full of vision and passion for Jesus above all things.

We are part of something so much bigger

There's a movement of people who know they were made to change the world. 

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is a missions movement of over 20,000 full-time volunteer workers serving in 180+ nations, who said a simple 'yes'.

We desire to Know God and Make Him Known in every nation, to every people group. We focus on serving those in need (mercy ministry), equipping people to be who they are made to be (training), and sharing the life-changing news of the gospel of Jesus (evangelism).

Why we do it

Because Jesus is worth it. Simple.

The Bible tells us  "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Mighty men and women in generations before us have gone to the nations as wild ones — come and be part of the next wave of people who make Jesus known, no matter what is takes.

I did not realise how lost I was until I completely found myself in Jesus. Coming to Engage DTS has changed my life forever. My relationship with God is stornger than it ever has been and it keeps on going. I love love love the worship here, so freedom in how you can worship. My roommates are the best, the campus is beautiful. I love all of our staff. the speakers we had were all so encouraging, wise and real with us.

DTS caused me to be launched into an extraordinary life with Jesus, even within the ordinary life at home. It changed my lifestyle, how I go about day-to-day life.
Life transforming! I’ll never be the same! I truely know my father more and what it means to be a part of his kingdom. I learned what real love looks like. Leadership & staff did such a great job keeping this school to be such an impactful, fun and loving place for us to grow and deepen our relationships with the Father; filled with so much deep dedication to our transformation.
