Youth Hostel Ministry



Our Mission and Vision

Mobilizing and equipping students to minister to the traveling communities of Europe and other parts of the world through living in community, offering friendship, evangelism & service.

Youth Hostel Ministry believes in the transformative power of Christ’s love for us. Therefore, we join the Holy Spirit in welcoming the traveling community to encounter Jesus as we listen to understand, accept unconditionally, serve practically, and testify to God’s saving love with a lifestyle of generosity.


How to Get Involved

Youth Hostel Ministries partners with various organizations across the globe which include:  


Colossians 4:2-6. Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.  Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.


If you are interested in ministering to the global traveling community in both work and deed, then please contact our Assistant Director of Summer Programs, Corrie Johnson at corrie.johnson@wheaton.edu
