The Beginning

In 2016, a small Youth With A Mission (YWAM) team came to Long Beach to run the first ever Discipleship Training School (DTS) in the city. The idea was to do inner city outreach along side lecture phase to prepare students for outreach phase and beyond. During this first school, students participated in a blend of outreach and classroom time. Our outreaches included homeless ministry, working with single mothers and their children, evangelism, and on-site intercession. This DTS was a first step on pioneering a new YWAM location in Long Beach.

The Ministry

YWAM Long Beach serves in the city daily. They are involved with a local homeless ministry called Beacon For Him where they help not only feed the homeless, but provide resources to help people get off the streets and into a sustainable lifestyle. They also help with local vacation Bible schools and church planting in the area. In addition to this, they run Discipleship Training Schools and have a strong relationship with YWAM Tokyo where they travel and minister to at least once a year. Jonathan and Nina Pocoroba are the base leaders and have a heart to impact their city and the nations.
