Youth With A Mission, Korea started
in 1967 as a ministry for the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship of the Seoul College of Engineering by Pastor David E. Ross (Oh Dae Won) who came to South Korea as a missionary in August 1961. College students were participating in a movement for democracy at that time, and through the ministries their hearts were turned to the Bible and they became passionate in the Holy Spirit. Seeing their passion, Pastor David E. Ross started the first Tuesday Prayer Meeting at his house in Yeonhui-dong in 1972.
They joined hands with YWAM International in the 1980s, and from there they expanded in youth ministries, college ministries and office worker ministries, which also led to the first DTS school in 1981 and Busan to be the first pioneered base after Seoul.
Currently, they have bases in 18 different locations with more than 1,000 staff nationally, and there are more than 500 full-time evangelists and more than 700 cooperating administrators internationally that have answer to God's calling and committing their lives to world mission.
