MAX

What is a MAX?


The Mission Adventures Experience is a full service short-term outreach ministry aimed towards groups. Our experienced Youth With A Mission staff, in partnership with Grace City Vegas, will take care of all the details of your mission trip so that you can experience and minister to various people groups of the city with your team. We cover all the bases – Food, housing, transportation, ministry planning, translation, supplies and more so that you can dig into discipling your students instead of being stuck as an administrator and task manager. You show up with your team and we’ll handle the rest.Mission Adventures means ministry training: You won’t go unprepared. Our experienced missionaries will equip you and your team with proven tools so that you can express the gospel and Christ’s love for the world through different outreaches. Not only will we prepare your hands, our training will prepare your hearts for all that God intends to do in and through your group.

Mission Adventures means spiritual growth: In serving with others, your team can become who they are intended to be. Jesus teaches us that when we lose ourselves for His sake, we will truly find out who we are meant to be. When you take your team on a Mission Adventures outreach, they will lose themselves in serving others. They’ll discover what they’re made of and grow.

As a Mission Adventures team you will have opportunities to minister in music, street evangelism, the sharing of testimonies and practical ministry work. You will find yourself in a variety of settings including block party evangelism at a local park, ministering to the homeless in the inner city, and “Viva la Worship” a music focused outreach on the famous Las Vegas strip. You don’t come and watch the missionaries do the work, you become the missionaries! Click HERE for an explanation of outreaches and activities.

All of our outreaches and training sessions are completed in wonderful Las Vegas. Our fabulous staff will train and lead you and your team on outreaches, in prayer, daily small groups and, of course, lots of fun! We aim to serve you, so that you can enjoy the opportunity to minister with your youth. Every team walks away changed, closer to the Lord, full of joy and stories of what God has done in and through them.

Here is what others are saying about Mission Adventures Las Vegas!

Going to Vegas was a life changing experience for me. I learned how to be on fire for God and how to share my faith. You really see how much impact you can have on somebody even as a teen! Between the fun/challenging outreaches and the awesome staff, it will be the best week of your life!

Jeff, Florida

I’ve been a Christian all my life, but I never understood the character of Jesus until I became his hands and feet. This mission trip taught me to seek for opportunities daily to pour into others. Not only did it change my life, it changed my urgency to get people to Christ.

Emily, Nevada

That trip changed my life in more ways that I can count! Through this whole ordeal, I have become twice the Christian that I was. I have matured in so many ways and I know that I have only God to thank for that!

Victoria, Michigan

Not only did I gain a huge heart for unbelievers, but the power of God was completely multiplied in my life. People were healed through me. It was incredible! This mission trip changed my life.

Kiah, Idaho

During all outreaches we did at YWAM, a love started to grow in me for God’s people. I was finally able to see past the fantasy that Las Vegas tries to project, and I saw the reality of the world. I started to see the broken, the poor in spirit, and the hungry and the thirsty.

Vanessa, Canada

Through the outreaches and talking to the YWAM staff, I found out what it really means to serve Christ with you whole life. I learned how to approach random strangers and talk to them about Jesus and to just trust God that he will lead us to the right people.

Lauren, California

Our mission trip to Las Vegas was the single most convicting and changing experience of our student ministry. We experienced what only the early Church must have experienced, and we will never be the same. Thank you YWAM!

Mike, Minnesota

The staff served and led with an attitude of excellence. This is an ‘out of the box ministry’ experience, led by passionate leaders, that will impact pastor, leaders and students and change the way you view evangelism, outreach and saving the lost.

Mark, Canada

Las Vegas MA brings out the person to break down the comfort zone to speak, pray, and live God’s Word on the streets of Las Vegas. I have seen this happen to my high school students and parents the past even years on our mission trips to Las Vegas.

Chris, Arizona

Las Vegas MAX had an impressive impact on our students spiritual lives. They learned how to be effective evangelists who can share the love of Jesus with complete strangers. The YWAM staff not only led us on this powerful journey, but also became our friends along the way.

Bryan, California
