Surfers for Missions International (SFMI)
Epic waves… God sized adventures.
YWAM Australia SFMI is dedicated to presenting the gospel to the least evangelised through surfing. Our aim is to use surfing as a means for missions to nations where an exploding surf culture coincides with the poor and least reached of our world. After all, the most prolific surf and waves in the world happen to be among the worlds most un-reached.
YWAM Australia SFMI seeks to establish long-term surf missions and church planting projects in Indonesia and Asia.
We do this through surf safaris, short-term surf mission trips and surf training schools for Christian discipleship and mission. There are opportunities for participants from surfing and non-surfing backgrounds. The minimum requirement is for you to want to “know God and make Him known” (and have a sense of adventure).
This ministry is a branch of YWAM Australia, Sunshine Coast.
Adventure and Impact
In past years teams of young people have impacted some of the world’s most remote surf mission destinations, such as: Sri Lanka, The Maldives, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Japan, and the islands of Indonesia (Nias, Bali, Rote, and West Timor).
