Structure & Board

Our Structure and Board

Youth With A Mission – Bishop is incorporated in the State of California and is recognized as a 501(c)(3) religious non-profit corporation by the IRS. The name “Sea & Summit Expeditions” is a dba of YWAM – Bishop. Though we are relationally a part of a larger family of ministries called Youth With A Mission, we are legally and financially independent of all other organizations, including those associated with YWAM. Additionally, though we run courses accredited by the University of the Nations and are considered by them to be a branch campus of such, our courses, staff, faculty, curriculum, and activities are soli operated and determined by the Youth With A Mission – Bishop corporate board, and not by the University of the Nations or any other entity. The board of YWAM – Bishop elects its own membership, and seeks a healthy mix of local non-YWAM believers, local YWAM – Bishop staff, and YWAM individuals from other YWAM related organizations. No one in leadership receives any financial remuneration – all serve voluntarily because they believe in the value of this ministry, its staff, and its vision.
