Mission Adventures

Mission Adventures specializes in planning, organizing, and hosting short-term urban outreaches in the city of Vancouver. Most of the these groups are youth groups, but we also host adult teams. Our heart is to take the logistics off of you, so that you and your leaders can focus on discipling your team. To do this we provide the food, housing, outreach set-up, briefing/training, and response times. We also have a YWAM host available to answer any questions you may have.

We want to give participants a taste of urban ministry through:

  • Education about Vancouver and the realities of an urban ministry setting, such as poverty, human trafficking, and world religions
  • Exposure to urban ministry
  • Experience reaching out to people in the city

Our hope is that as participants engage in outreach to the city of Vancouver, they will see God's heart for Vancouver, and that this will serve as a catalyst for participants to get involved in what God is doing in their respective towns and cities. Ready to book your team?

Meet The Leader

Emily Lenk

Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, I moved to Vancouver and joined YWAM 4 years ago. I have a heart for youth and love seeing teenagers be radically changed by the love of Christ like I was. I want to see the next generation grasp hold of the love of God and let that transform them, heal them and teach them how to love themselves and the people around them better. 

I am passionate about having fun! I love superhero movies, Taco Bell, bowling, reading and connecting with people!
