About Us

BayouLeBatre 121.jpg

We are a ministry that serves the needs of Bayou La Batre and the surrounding communities. While in existence since 1997, in 2005 our work  changed drastically after Hurricane Katrina damaged much of the community. While this work continues, we also facilitate vacation bible school to many children and provide mission opportunities for high school and college youth. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact us via the contact page.


Yahweh Ministries was started by Robert Besson, a Bayou La Batre native and experienced construction worker. Throughout the 10+ years of ministry, Yahweh Ministries has relied on the help of the local community and volunteers from around the country to carry out its mission.
