lorencunninghamOur History

“Jugend mit einer Mission” (JMEM) is the German branch of the international mission organization Youth With A Mission (YWAM) which was founded in 1960 by Loren Cunningham in the USA.

On the occasion of the Olympic games in Munich (1972), Youth With A Mission was searching for a place to stay in the area and found the Hurlach Castle that was up for sale, about 70 km west of Munich. Up until today the castle has been used as a training centre for missionaries. Over the past 42 years, thousands of students from Germany and other nations have attended schools such as the Discipleship Training School (DTS) or newer schools like the School of Biblical Studies (SBS) or School of Biblical Christian Worldview (SBCW). Seminars, charitable and missionary outreaches within Germany and in other countries, as well local ministries (amongst foreigners, in churches or youth groups) have been offered.
