History

Antioch Institute for International Ministries (YWAM-AIIM)IMG_1190
AIIM is the fruit of a vision that God gave to David Ross in 1985 while teaching at the YWAM DTS in Taipei, Taiwan. God showed him the great potential of the Korean Diaspora – the 7 million Koreans living outside Korea among the nations of the world for world evangelization.
AIIM is a ministry of YWAM. We began our first phase as “The Antioch Connection” in Los Angeles and New York — connecting many youth and young adults, as well as churches, with the vision of the first cross-cultural church, the Church of Antioch in the Book of Acts. Now we have entered our permanent phase — The Antioch Institute for International Ministries. We are located in the beautiful foothills of the Cascades mountain range, in Monroe, Washington.
At YWAM-AIIM, we draw deeply on our Korean heritage, with a love for the Word of God and a strong emphasis on prayer, a strong emphasis on the Holy Spirit and mission to the world. However, we are not a Korean ministry but an international community of the Holy Spirit open to people of all races and nationalities, bonded together to make Christ known to the world.
