Hawaii is an iconic island chain filled with lush vegetation and beautiful beaches. On the exterior is an image of paradise but beyond the façade lies a hurting and broken people. Climbing teen suicide rates, drug abuse, and domestic violence among native Hawaiians bring a sense of hopelessness to the islands local community. But we have been called to see beyond the statistics and bring the light of Christ into every community, here on island of Kauai and every nation! YWAM Kauai is excited to be apart of its local community, partnering with domestic violence shelters, church youth groups, community development organizations, and youth mentoring we are bringing hope to the hopeless on the “Garden Island”!

YWAM Kauai is passionate about reaching the unreached with the Gospel of Jesus! There are estimated to be over 6,600 unreached people groups in the world today, translating to about 3 billion individuals. So what is an unreached people group? Well first of all a people group, simple put, can be defined as a society with a common language, ethnic history, and identification. Therefore an unreached people group is “a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group.” We believe it is God’s desire to see every nation, tribe, and tongue worship and bring glory to His name. We are excited bring the Kingdom of God to some of the most remote places on earth!
“All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.” – Psalm 86:9
Psalm 47:1 “Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy.”
