What people say about this YWAM location


YWAM Louisville is incredible and was such an amazing tool in my walk with Jesus! I grew up in the church all my life and longed to be good enough to those around me and especially to the Lord. YWAM Louisville gave me an opportunity to develop INTIMATE FRIENDSHIP with God that I never knew could be possible, being able to FREELY come to the feet of Jesus.

Kendra Miller

YWAM Alumni


The decision to come to YWAM Louisville has drastically changed my life. My whole life had been surrounded by insecurity, confusion, and passivity. I was almost running out of hope and doubting God's actual existence when I got the chance to come to a discipleship training school. I grew up going to church and thought I knew who God was, but I was so wrong. God used YWAM Louisville to reveal who he is and how deeply he cares for me. 

Jeremy Hess

DTS Alumni


I knew I wanted to do a DTS when YWAM Louisville called me, and everything they described about their base and school fit what I was looking for. In DTS, I found friends as close as family, biblical discipleship, a transformed relationship with Jesus, and an opportunity to use my gifts in missions. I never would have imagined of going to the places I’ve been or the ways God has used me through YWAM.

Abigail Orman

Gap Year Alumni


In September of 2019 I decided to do a Discipleship Training School with YWAM Louisville. Prior to this decision I felt stagnant in my faith and I was longing to further my relationship with the Lord. My school helped me do this and more. I learned how the Lord wanted a personal relationship and what that looks like for me
