Here in the heart of east Texas, at one of YWAM’s largest training centers, thousands of people have developed a personal and intimate relationship with God over the past 30 plus years. There is really nothing like knowing God, hearing His voice for yourself and experiencing the adventure that comes with obedience. With eyes fixed on Christ, our staff are here to help you develop a meaningful walk with God, find your purpose and call and be launched into a life of Christian ministry.

Our goal is to equip you to better know the Lord, and provide opportunities that you might impact others who do not know Christ.  YWAM TYLER is a “Discipling Center that Pioneers,” helping you become more Christ-centered, share your faith, and begin new ministries that honor God and change the world.

Serving worldwide, we are involved with spreading the Good News, providing health care, relief work, English courses, impacting societies with the Gospel message, and more as we seek to make God known.
