This vessel is operated by members of YWAM and at sea carries these member, fulfilling its service to others in the ports visited. There she serves as a platform on which the main objective is to fellowship with the local body of Christ and bring training to young people, equipping and releasing them to work in various humanitarian, community and missions related efforts around the world. The vessel serves as a floating home to our crew and trainees as well as a club house to host visitors spending most of its time in the Mediterranean Sea region. From September each year s/y Next Wave hosts a YWAM Discipleship Training School (DTS). Lasting 6 months, of which the first 4 are on board travelling around Europe. During the rest of the year the crew host YWAMers doing short-term missions trips, as well as organising their own outreach activities in the ports visited. We want to take every opportunity to challenge and train the next generation of young people to rise up to be the leaders of tomorrow.
