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). Currently we are fundraising for the purchase of a larger base property which would improve our ability to run schools and host base ministry activities. In 2020 we will be running a Discipleship Training School (DTS) and a School of Worship (SOW).


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.

The purpose of the School of Worship is to follow the mandate of Psalm 96:3
"Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous deeds among all peoples."

  

Topics include:

This course aims to instruct students in becoming more grounded in biblical worship, to align their personal character and service in worship with Christian ministry principles, and to develop skills to assist in worship ministry. When God's people worship Him wholeheartedly it attracts lost and hungry souls to their Creator.

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)
