DO YWAM STAFF GET PAID?
To join YWAM as staff anywhere in the world, you need to have your own financial backing. YWAM helps people put together a prayer and financial support team (e.g., friends, home groups, churches, relatives, etc.) before they join as staff.
Financial support requirements vary according to the area of the world you will minister or live in, and your own determination of standard-of-living. The YWAM location you apply to will advise you.
While this may sound like a big challenge to you, it is truly amazing how many have served the Lord for years in so-called "full-time" service, with other Christians playing a different part by standing behind them through sending and supporting. It produces a real sense of God's confirmation upon your call when others take part in your ministry through prayer and financial support.
