So many young people have hearts full of love for Christ, passion for the Great Commission, and unique dreams about how to use their specific gifts in the Kingdom. Too often, though, they have no practical idea where to start. Far too many passionate and skilled young people are sitting on the sidelines simply waiting to be activated, even though Jesus himself said, "the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few."
That's why we're here. Our heart is for you: the wide-eyed & full-hearted, those longing to know and fall more deeply in love with Jesus and discover how He longs to use your whole life for His glory here and among the nations.
“The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it,” (1 Thes. 5:24).
We just want to be a part of it.
Young people with hearts awakened to Christ, dreams inspired for the Kingdom, and hands creatively engaged in the Great Commission.
Activate young people to exalt Jesus Christ and advance His Gospel to the multitudes

“[At OneWay] I've learned that there are still many young adults who are passionate for God's work to be done, and are hungry for DEEP fellowship that form a community.”
“I went into this internship not having a clue of what I wanted to do, but by the end of the summer God opened my eyes to how He wants to use the gifts and abilities I have to build His kingdom!“
“Something God taught me was that He cares for me more than I could ever imagine even when I don’t necessarily see it... I will always remember the friends, the constant pushing toward Christ and the bond we all have as we worked for the kingdom together.”
