There is much written about hard and soft skills in leaders over the last years. From research it shows that women are stronger than men in 11 out of 12 areas of emotional intelligence. With emotional intelligence being so important for the present generations, what conclusions should we make for the role of women in leadership?

Gender-inequity in Youth with a Mission (YWAM)? No, we don’t have this problem! We do have women in leadership roles! Of course we do! I mean, if our founder even wrote a book with the title Why Not Women?, then there cannot be a problem! …or can it?

Become Leaders With Impact

YWAM Europe is contending for unity and effectiveness as a Missions Movement within our continent.

This website seeks to distill the hard won experience, wisdom, successes and failures of leaders from YWAM’s 6 European areas. Take a look at the map to see how we arrange ourselves.

It represents a collaboration of people with service across 8 decades who recognise the power of the generations working together in a servant hearted fashion. 

We believe that if we work in unity together then our lives will be spent well – that is, for the benefit and glory of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom on Earth.
