at  YWAM Ålesund

In response to the Scriptures and the good of our communities throughout the world that we are in contact with, YWAM Ålesund is committing to respecting the directives of the governments that are establishing actions and restrictions to bring down the spread and impact of the corona virus.  Therefore, we currently are not running activities that call for assembling people and increasing risk of transmission and our staff are meeting and working over digital platforms. We are able to continue with laying more infrastructure for our base and our schools, though at this time.

We do have hope that the spread and impact of the virus will soon be mastered, and plan to resume all of our schools in fall 2020. Although we are not fans of the virus or its physical impact, we do trust in the ability and faithfulness of our God to bring much good out of this, as only He can.


A few Scriptures of encouragement:

Romans 8:28 reminds that God will bring good from all things to those who love Him.

Mark 8:37 reminds us of what is truly important eternally, and we can take encouragement that challenges, sufferings and changes such as we are experiencing now can cause us to pause and consider things in a deeper way than we may typically, when we are busy.

2 Cor.12:9 reminds us that Christ can be glorified and make us stronger through our weakness.



Many students are worried or reconsidering their plans for the fall. What about taking a DTS in Ålesund? 


As a gap year to refocus and reconsider the direction you are heading in education, job, or career paths.  DTS gives a great base of leaning on God, listening to Him, and experiencing His hand in other countries in unusual ways.


If you only have a few months to finish your school to graduate and your other plans are halted. A DTS finishes in February, leaving time to work on and finish 12th grade courses to be ready for the next educational or career steps, but a DTS can be pursued prior to officially finishing those last few courses – although, we very strongly recommend finishing the 12th grade!
