WHO we are
Welcome to YWAM Lebanon PA!
Our YWAM training center calls the town of Lebanon, PA home.Â YWAM Lebanon is part of the YWAM family of ministries and our mission is to train and send out missionaries, especially to the least reached.
Our YWAM Lebanon community is small but quite international and is led by Mike and Lora Bordon, YWAM career missionaries.Â Â Training programs in discipleship, missions, and language skills (teaching and learning) allow our students to be well equipped for their place and calling in the Kingdom of God.Â Â We also partner with churches and organizations to evangelize and disciple the Pennsylvania region. We are always seeking to send out missionaries and pioneer ministry both locally and to the far reaches of the globe.
We are strong believers in community, and life at our training center reflects that. We have daily community gatherings for worship and prayer, before our classes begin for the day. There are fun times, and spaces for devotions, personal conversations, and sports/recreational activities.Â We seek to help our students to grow in Christ, discover and develop their gifts, and know their calling in the Kingdom of God.
Lebanon itself is a town of roughly 25,000 people, with a large Hispanic community.Â It is two hours from Philadelphia, and one hour from the state capital of Harrisburg, as well as from Lancaster County.Â Â The tourist town of Hershey, PA is nearby.Â It is a great area to be in, with a number of fine churches. There is a rich Christian heritage in this area, and in some respects, we feel we are living on the prayers of the saints who have gone before us.
