ABOUT


TO KNOW GOD
AND MAKE HIM KNOWN


Youth With A Mission (YWAM)

Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known. Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people aged 9 to 90. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000. One of the joys of participating in YWAM is to work with people from many nations. YWAM’s staff (known as “YWAMers”) come from over 130 countries, including places like Indonesia, Nepal, Mozambique, and Colombia.

University of the Nations

The University of the Nations was born out of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a highly decentralized international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to presenting the person of Jesus Christ to this generation and to training and equipping many believers in that endeavor. As citizens of God’s kingdom, YWAM staff seek to love, worship, and obey their Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present the whole gospel for the whole person throughout the whole world. The UofN is unique in its international missionary training scope with school locations in 160 nations and at 600 locations on all continents. Because national accrediting agencies have major differences in their systems, the UofN has not, at present, applied for any one nation’s accreditation.


OUR HISTORY

From print house to symbol of hope and cultural harmony. The Harp building existed as a printing house for over 88 years starting in 1925. Today this facility is finding new life and is in the process of a complete renovation - to better serve the needs of today’s community… bridging cultures and bringing change through education, outreach and events to be a voice for the voiceless. The facility was purchased in 2014 and phase two of the renovation project is projected to be complete in 2017 (pending fundraising completion). Phase 1 of the renovations has been entirely completed through local and international donations. The team at YWAMbb is doing a great work in the Bad Blankenburg community and with the completed renovations will be equipped to serve both current residents and newly arrived refugees.

REFUGEES

We do like receiving teams who want to work with refugees as well as strengthen current ministries on our campus. The opportunities are endless as we work towards sustainable initiative that will lay the foundation for years to come. Some our ministries are, football training, German language classes, women integration classes, Thursday night cultural evenings.
