About us

PhotogenX YWAM Bad Blankenburg, is a new base of Youth with a Mission Germany. We're located in the small town of Bad Blankenburg in the middle of Germany. As YWAM we continue God's calling for this building that he gave in 1925 when four men of God laid the foundation for this former Christian printing press. Unfortunately, in 1972 the communist government took over the building to use it as a secular printing press. Now, after over 40 years, God is restoring its original calling to be a place from which the good news of Jesus Christ is spread out through modern media! We as YWAM Bad Blankenburg seek to call out young people to stand up for the poor and the people in need. We fight for justice by helping through mercy ministries. Walking in the calling of photogenX, we also use media as a tool to speak out for those who have no voice.


Help for migrants and refugees

Welcoming refugees in Germany! That is the core of our ministry in Bad Blankenburg and our region. Most of the refugees come from Eritrea, Syria and Afghanistan. We are a local initiative welcoming refugees and helping them to quickly get settled in their new environment and helping them to find a new home here. A part of our work is offering German courses, accompanying them to the public authorities and doctors, as well as helping kids with their homework. We make connections with people in the region to take them into a godparenthood with one on one relationships. We establish connections with companies which can offer internships to help the refugees to get their first impressions of the German working environment and to make their first work experiences in Germany.

The Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS) seeks to bring you into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.
