What is YWAM?


To know God and make Him known

A Global Movement

Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.

Back when YWAM began in 1960, the main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, YWAM still focuses on youth, but we also involve people aged 9 to 90. YWAM currently operates in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.

One of the joys of participating in YWAM is to work with people from many nations. YWAM’s staff (known as “YWAMers”) come from over 130 countries, including places like Indonesia, Nepal, Mozambique, and Colombia.

About us


About us


Base

The Casorate Primo base was pioneered by the Gatti family in 2016. The focus of the base is on adoration and the arts, from which comes the ministry name "Worship&Art." The vision is to take the glory of God to the nations using artistic expressions.

In 2017, the base hosted its first School of Worship (SOW). In the autumn/winter of 2018 we will be running a Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course through our local church.


Andrea Gatti

I grew up in Binasco, in the province of south Milan. After finishing my studies at Centro Professione Musica di Milano, I came to know the Lord while working as a professional percussionist. 

Responding to the Lord’s call, I began a time of spiritual formation in England with the Christian community, Jesus Army. When I returned to Italy, I connected with Youth With a Mission. First, I completed a Discipleship Training School (DTS) at the Milan base. Then I attended a School of Worship (SOW) in Lakeside, Montana (USA).

I was part of the YWAM Milano team. I also serve in my local Church, and I still study and teach music. I am married to Rachel, who I met during my studies with Youth With a Mission.

I love the arts, especially music. My dream is to see Italy and the nations blossom in their unique identity, each one expressing its specific character for the glory of God.


Rachel Gatti

I grew up in a small farming town in West Tennessee in the United States. In 2009, I did my Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Milan where I met my husband, Andrea. After getting married I moved to Italy in 2011 and briefly staffed at the YWAM Milano base. Our daughter, Elisabetta, was born in 2014, and Eva Rose in 2018.

I love food — from planting a seed, watching it grow, harvesting it, cooking it and ultimately eating it. I truly believe that we can “Taste and see that God is good…” (Psalm 34:8) and that ministering to others through food is fun and downright tasty. 

I currently serve in my local church, teach English privately and collaborate with the ministry Freedom in Christ Italy.

My dream is to see more people receiving Christ, being discipled and set free from whatever would hinder them from becoming devoted lovers and followers of Christ.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
— Psalm 100 (NIV)

Our Privacy Policy


At YWAM Casorate Primo, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that we are not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We just don’t do that sort of thing. But just in case you don’t believe us, in this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure. 

When someone visits www.ywamcasorateprimo.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. 

As part of the registration process for our e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about things you’ve asked us to tell you about (such as news updates and prayer points); to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information. We don't rent, trade or share email lists and the information they contain with other organisations and businesses.

When we receive applications for staff, volunteer and mission building positions, as well as student applications to YWAM schools, the information the applicants provide is used specifically to decide whether to assume the applicants as staff or receive them as students. For accepted staff, we retain the applicants’ information so they can be registered with YWAM.org as YWAM Casorate Primo base staff. Students accepted to participate in YWAM schools are registered as students with YWAM.org in order for them to receive certification through University of the Nations for the school/course that they complete. Personal information regarding a YWAM Casorate Primo staff member or former student may be shared with the leader of another YWAM base only when we are contacted as a reference because the person in question has applied to be staff or a student at that specific YWAM base.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Rachel Gatti.
