«From 1960 on, Loren Cunningham called youth to travel the world as missionaries, telling everyone everywhere of Jesus. In new generations and new ways, Youth With A Mission volunteers continue sharing God’s love.»

From their campus in Kona, Hawaii, and others in 180+ nations, the mission mobilizes 20,000 full-time volunteer missionaries and hundreds of thousands more short-term volunteers. Loren founded YWAM to send missionaries from all nations to all nations. The mission and university share the gospel, teach, and help the needy worldwide.

Loren has inspired faith in the next generations. «Jesus is winning! Jesus is winning! As I’ve gone through the nations, I’m watching a rising tide. He unlocked the world of missions for millions, calling young and old, women and men, from all denominations and ethnicities. After several trips around the world and years spent mobilizing youth missions, Loren’s efforts grew into a movement called Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Concentrated discipleship training were led by Brother Andrew, Joy Dawson, Corrie Ten Boom, and Loren Cunningham. You see the Bible says in Mark 16 verse 15, «I want you to go into all of the world and preach the gospel to every creature.»

Rallies and short-term outreaches grew into schools and long-term missions. In 1977, Youth With A Mission bought and renovated a bankrupt, dilapidated former hotel to become YWAM’s first campus for the University of the Nations.

Loren co-founded the university with renowned scientist, inventor, and professor Howard V. Malmstadt. In 1984, Loren and his sister Janice Rogers wrote their first book. Now, their books are in 150+ languages.

In 1963, he married his wife, Darlene, who co-founded the mission with him. They immediately flew to Europe for a mission’s outreach. They shared the thrills and challenges as Youth With A Mission expanded. The Cunninghams moved to Switzerland with their seven-month-old daughter, Karen. Their son David was born there in Lausanne, Switzerland. In 1974, the family moved to Hawaii and kept moving 18 times as the mission rented many places. He helped his family go together to all the world.

He’s remembered for being a loving and faithful husband, father, and grandfather, and a faithful follower of God’s call to «Go into all the world.»
