Youth With a Mission
Parable - Land In Process
"...Jesus compares us to land in Mark 4, in the well known parable of the Sower. The farmer seems to scatter seed everywhere, regardless of the land's quality. There's the seed on the path where the birds decimate everything, there's the rocky ground, the land with thorns, and then there's the good soil that has these varying crop yields – 30, 60, or 100 times what was sown. Wouldn't a good farmer abandon the infertile land, identify the soil with the highest production capability and concentrate her efforts there?..."
Create Emerge is here to connect people with information and understanding about what’s happening in mission. We track stories of people who are being the hands and feet of Jesus in some tough places, and we share the good news of what God is doing in areas that sometimes we only hear bad news about.
Create Emerge is a team within Create International, a transnational ministry of Youth With a Mission.
“The vision of Create International is to communicate the message of Jesus Christ in ways that people can understand from their cultural and linguistic background, using tools such as dramatic films, evangelistic artwork, websites, and indigenous music & music videos that can be widely circulated and used by church planting teams, local churches, believers, missionaries, and various organizations.”
Create International currently consists of seven teams. They include: Global Communication & Resource Centre, Create Perth, Create Thailand, Create India, Create Taiwan, Create 20/20 Vision Team, and Create Emerge.
Youth With A Mission
Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced "WHY-wham"), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.
When YWAM began in 1960, our main focus was giving young people opportunities to demonstrate the love of Jesus to the whole world, according to His command in Mark 16:15. Today, we still focus on youth, but we have members (known as “YWAMers”) of almost every age and many of our short-term efforts have grow into long-term endeavors that have impacted lives and nations.
YWAM has a decentralized structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through training, convey the message of the gospel and care for those in need. We are currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 150 countries, with a staff of nearly 16,000.
