Founded in October 2017, the campus began with 12 people moving to Paris following a word from the Lord. God showed campus leader’s Adam & Leah Thompson that His eye was on the city of Paris, and that this city would be a bridge to the nations. It was time for a new YWAM campus to be planted and grown into a place of ministry and missional training in order to impact the city and surrounding nations!

Since then, God has expanded the campus rapidly. The full time volunteers have tripled. Several training schools run every year, as well as frequent local seminars & hosting & sending international outreaches. All because God’s heart is to see His children impacted and restored.

If it’s a word from the Lord, then He is faithful to come through even if everything around you says He won’t.
