Youth Missions International is dedicated to improving your mission trip experience. We train groups and individuals to do mission differently while empowering young Christian leaders who love to share Jesus.

Explore Leader

Lead a mission trip

As an adult 23 or older, you have the experience and passion to pour into a generation of young Christian leaders.

Here's what being a leader means: 

  • Mentor 
  • Disciple
  • Guide
  • Protect

Youth Missions International is a student-led, adult-mentored ministry. As a mission team leader, you will shepherd students through their mission experience, observe their progress and help them develop in their Christian faith. 

The skills you learn through this experience will empower you for a lifetime of mentor opportunities in your own community. Before you lead, Mission Differently will equip you with a specialized leader training covering topics such as mentorship,
team safety, and how to debrief a ministry event.

I believe it’s critical to mentor youth to become the godly men and women they should be. I love the way YMI does that by training them and then allowing them to put what they’ve learned into practice out on the mission field.
— Jim, Team Leader from Michigan
