Whenever two passions come together as one, something truly amazing happens; and that’s exactly what takes place on-board the Next Wave. Joining our crew allows you to fuse your passion for sailing with your drive for pursuing Christ in the adventure of a lifetime while serving on-board.

Why Join Next Wave Crew?

As Next Wave, we aspire to live out the YWAM value of championing young people and being visionary. We encourage fresh vision and new initiatives inviting you to share your ideas and dreams with us — let’s explore the seas and bring God’s kingdom to the Middle-Eastern frontier and the world through YWAM ships!

That moment when you forget you are volunteering to help change lives, because it’s changing yours…

Like all YWAM staff worldwide, our crew are required to have successfully completed a Discipleship Training School (DTS). All crew are encouraged to make a two-year commitment.  Additionally, all of our crew are non-paid volunteer positions.  To join YWAM as staff anywhere in the world, you need to have your own financial backing.  All of our crew members raise support to cover their expenses.
