Please join us, as we prepare together for closure to Christ’s Great Commission. Pneuma Springs exists solely for missions.
Thank you for visiting our website today, we would like to welcome you to our community.
YWAM-AIIM is committed to finishing the task of the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to disciple the nations of the world.
We invite you to participate with us in making this happen. There are a wide variety of opportunities for you to find a caring community where together we can bring transformation to a suffering world. We have weekly Praise and Bible teaching, as well as intercession for the nations. Our schools and seminars will help you prepare to serve God as He leads you. Together with you we can also serve the poor and needy in our neighborhoods and cities.
What is AIIM?
AIIM is the Antioch Institute for International Ministries. AIIM is a Ministry of Youth With A Mission International. We are a YWAM base. We operate as a YWAM base. At the same time we are unique, with special emphases, just as most YWAM bases are unique. YWAM-AIIM’s reason for existence is for mission to the World. Our motto is that of all YWAM bases: To Know God and Make Him known.
What is Pneuma Springs?
YWAM-AIIM Pneuma Springs is a missionary community of the Holy Spirit. As a community, we are an organism and not an institution. We seek to base our life together and our witness to the world on the selfless love that God revealed to the world in the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ. Our aim is to become a reflection of this love, giving to one another — including guests who come to us — unselfishly in love and service so that our ministries flow out of our communion. Our hope is that the world will know that we are His disciples because of our love for Christ and for one another.
Beginning of Pneuma Springs
In 1996 God blessed AIIM with a large 13-acre property in Monroe, Washington, just one hour from Seattle and Tacoma and a little over two hours from Vancouver, Canada. After many years of prayer, Snohomish County granted AIIM a building permit to construct “Pneuma Springs in 2001, and we now are well on our way to seeing God once again provide “springs in the desert.” We of AIIM desire Pneuma Springs to become a place where God’s people can come to be refreshed by God’s Holy Spirit, empowered by that Spirit to be His witnesses, and trained to take His Gospel to the whole world.
Vision of Pneuma Springs
Pneuma Springs will be a place of Worship on behalf of the nations of the world and with people from many nations — that the name of Jesus Christ may be exalted in this place. Pneuma Springs will be a place of Intercession for the nations of the world, because we believe that all mission begins and ends with prayer, and that God indeed answers the prayers of His people to transform nations. Our vision is that believers from churches throughout the Pacific Northwest will come to join us in prayer for the salvation of the world. Our prayer room will always be open. Pneuma Springs will be a place of training for cross-cultural missionaries, because the critical need of this age is for missionaries who are well trained in the Word of God and in communicating the Gospel intelligently and with power to peoples of all cultures.
We believe that everyone who comes to Pneuma Springs — Springs of the Spirit — whether missionaries who need refreshment and renewal or Christians who need to meet the Lord for healing and empowerment, will be touched by the Spirit of God in a life-changing way. All of AIIM’s schools — Discipleship Training School, New Korea Servant School, Jubilee School for Missionary Renewal, Mission Bible School, Summer Missions Impact, and other strategic programs — will be housed in our new center.
