Why Values Matter….

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is a Christian missions movement like no other. Since 1960, it has launched wave after wave of young missionaries – now into the millions – who have impacted every nation on earth by simply listening to and obeying the voice of God. In Values Matter, YWAM Co-founder Darlene Cunningham shares inspiring stories of how God shaped YWAM into what it is today – a large and effective “wave-maker” for missions – through the spiritual “DNA” carried within its Core Beliefs and 18 Foundational Values. Darlene has lived, taught and led discoveries into these essential beliefs and values for decades on six continents. Her passion is to impart them into future generations of YWAM missionaries. This extraordinary book does just that.


Darlene Cunningham is a master storyteller.  And what a story this is!

In Values Matter, Darlene reveals how God had a call upon Loren and her lives for the birth, growth and impact of what has become one of the most innovative and dynamic mission organizations of the modern era. She tells this unfolding story through the lives of people and places God has touched through Youth With A Mission. Intertwined in the story is the discovery over the decades of the Biblically rooted beliefs and values that have proven foundational to the fruitfulness of this mission.

This book is for you if you have been involved in YWAM for a while and want to get re-grounded in the history and principles that have shaped the mission. It is for you if you are just joining the mission and want to understand it more fully. Or perhaps you are just curious and have heard of this amazingly different, entrepreneurial, world-impacting mission and want to understand what “makes it tick.” This book has those answers.

In their youth, Darlene and Loren learned about worldview from the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer. They understood that history is not something that happens to you, it is something you make happen. God has remarkably connected the history of their lives and YWAM to HIS-story. And the world will never be the same. I invite you to read this story and join the journey. Your life will be marked forever!
