If you have any questions please contact us.


Is there a time commitment?

We ask that all people coming on staff commit to being here for 2 years.  We believe this is important to provide stability to the ministries and to allow enough time to form strong relationships among the staff. If a person is unable to commit to 2 years on staff they can explain their situation to the base leadership for an exception.

What are the staff fees?

We do not have staff fees because we do not have YWAM owned staff housing.  Most of our staff live together in houses in the community and eat in their own houses.  We can help you to arrange housing or you are welcome to rent/buy a place of your own here in town.  Most of our staff pay $450/month for room and board.  For more information on budgeting please contact us.

Do you have staff housing?

See above.

Can families come on staff?

We love families and believe that they are a very important part of any YWAM base.  We already have several families on staff with children of all ages. So YES!

Do I need to be a Canadian citizen?

No, but you do need a valid VISA to be staff in Canada. For more information about your specific country and help with a Canadian VISA application please contact us.

Non-Canadian staff also need to have medical insurance while they are staff with us in Canada.  If you need help finding an insurance company please contact us and we can help you.

What is your community like?

The town of Blackfalds is a wonderful place to live.  It's a small community in Western Canada were we have been very well received and have found many meaningful opportunities to be involved in the community.  More information can be found here on our page all about Blackfalds including maps and pictures.

Can you help me to raise money?

All YWAM staff need to raise their own support. Most staff receive support from their home churches, family, and friends. Once you are accepted on staff our "Project Funding Office" will be able to receive money on your behalf and issue tax receipts for Canadian donors.  This information and more help on fundraising is all available in your staff acceptance package.
