YWAM Amman

Home to 4 million residents, Amman is the vibrant capital city of Jordan.

YWAM Amman has served Jordan and the surrounding countries with training and equipping people for over four decades. What started as only a few people has grown into a thriving community of Arabs and internationals serving and loving the over 4 million people that the city hosts.

From the more traditional neighbourhoods to the modern sky-scrapers of the Boulevard, Amman is the place where the rich history of the Bible meets the international influence of this day. This provides Y Amman with endless opportunities to innovate and connect with people from all backgrounds and in all spheres of society.

Over the years YWAM Amman have seen various initiatives to impact the city and equip those who come in short term and long term capacities. We are the home community for many of our teams and we love to function as a united, yet very diverse family where each person, skill, initiative and passion finds a place.

Recently we have been working on becoming a training hub to not only impact Amman, but the Middle East, as well. Jordan is one of the few countries in the region that has been able to consistently run training programs and we are excited to see how we can be used to further the work.

Our vision is to be a YWAM community that provides opportunity for individuals and families to impact the city, and to be trained, developed and launched in obedience to build God’s Kingdom in Jordan and the Arab World.

Join us!

Would you like to become a part of a loving, hard working and committed team? We are looking for people from all backgrounds and of any talent to come and join us in serving here.

Short term & Send a team

For the past four decades Y Amman has fruitfully hosted short term teams and volunteers. Amman is a rich melting pot of many kinds of refugees and cultures. We offer a rich variety of programs to help you serve those communities and achieve an impactful and memorable trip.


Currently we are specifically looking for English teachers to help teach at our Cultural centre.

Long term

Are you thinking of living long term in the Middle East? As Y Amman we desire for each of our staff to have a growing understanding of the cultural context, regional history and future vision of the nation that we live and work in. Therefore we offer two training programs for those desiring to commit to be a part of a Y Amman team long term; the options are TIS and FSOMD


Language and cultural acquisition

Whether you know you will be staying to work with us in Jordan or going somewhere else in the region, learning the language is the key to connect with the local community.  Jordan is one of the leading locations in the region for Arabic  learning with a big variety of high quality language programs and great language immersion opportunities.

Here in Amman we offer two tracks, supporting those coming to the city to study Arabic; Accelerate and Solid Foundations.
Both Accelerate and Solid foundations are a language and culture acquisition team with a training track to prepare you for long term work among the people in the region. Participants study Arabic full time but also meet weekly to discover their vision, grow in leadership skills and  prepare for transformational work in the community.
