Who Are we?

Who makes up YWAM Winnipeg?

YWAM Winnipeg is made up of people like YOU!  People who love Jesus and want to share him with others and impact their world.  There isn’t a single base or ministry known as “YWAM Winnipeg”.  Rather, there are a couple of YWAM ministries which operate independently but which together make up YWAM in the Winnipeg area.

All of these ministries are totally, passionately committed to the mission and the values of YWAM.  That being said, some of what we do is local, some is national, while other aspects are international.  Scroll down through the ministries below to find out more about just how they are fulfilling the Great Commission!

YWAM & Associates / Discipleship Training Course

Walter and Chris Martens work with YWAM & Associates, connecting and encouraging YWAM alumni in Manitoba.  They also facilitate a YWAM Discipleship Training Course (mini DTS) for YWAM alumni and anyone longing for a deeper relationship with Jesus.  The course will involve going on a short outreach trip somewhere in Canada.  They live in Headingly, Manitoba, and regularly gather YWAM Alumni for times of worship and fellowship.  For more info, contact them at 204 688-9663, or email wmartensywamassoc@gmail.com;

YWAM / King's Kids Winnipeg

Doug & Carolin Sadler have led YWAM/KKI Winnipeg for over 20 years, and have taken teams on many missions, both in Canada and overseas. They lead mission trips to Africa, teach English as a Second Language, and have founded a charity which has 500 sponsored children in Rwanda and Uganda. They live in the west end of Winnipeg and often meet with people online for worship, training, learning English, or for mentoring.
