Together we can make a difference


Together we can make a difference

We are happy that you are considering joining us at YWAM Harpenden! As you think and pray about your future we want to give you a little insight into who we are and what we do here.

The purpose of YWAM Harpenden is to love God and multiply His Kingdom as Jesus revealed it; creating a community where young people learn to live as followers of Jesus, and are equipped and sent out together to bless the nations.

We are part of the University of the Nations and serve as an international training campus. We are a multi-generational, international missions community of about 120 staff, 50 children and 120 trainees each year.

We have had the joy of being YWAM Harpenden for about 30 years. Most people are here for a shorter time as God equips them and sends them out. However long you are here, you have the opportunity to experience the incredible richness of God’s goodness, learning to know Him more and make Him known. With Jesus at the centre of our missions community, we welcome all whom He calls. Together we are YWAM Harpenden.
