“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few”
This Project is part of the long term plan of development here in YWAM Harpenden. We purchased Highfield Oval in 1986, and have worked and renovated the property and the land since that time. We are so excited after 35 years, for the expansion of our property. Kinahan Lodge is just the beginning. New schools will begin in September, seminars and mission gatherings throughout the Summer. Hundreds of young people pouring into Highfield Oval and we want to train, equip and send them out for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Kinahan Lodge is out latest development here in Harpenden. Built with passion & vision to help facilitate and encourage those working in the Spheres. Government, Media, Family/Church, Education, Celebration (Arts, Entertainment & Sports), Economics (Business, Science and Technology). Seminars, Retreats, and Training for YWAM and for those within the Body of Christ, from UK, Europe and beyond.
Many groups in the area of Technology, Politics, Government and others, have expressed a desire for a meeting place. A merging place of knowledge, experience and above all, faith in their chosen endeavours’. Kinahan Lodge will provide that place of coming together. It will also open doors for young people in YWAM to learn, be mentored and launched into their chosen field. It will also offer a place of de-briefing for those returning from YWAM outreach into many nations. Our students have come from over 70 nations since we began training here at Highfield Oval.
Kinahan Lodge will be a place of connection, mentoring, learning and encouragement. The Lord has called us to establish a place where missional young people, who have been called of God to work in various sectors, to be mentored in their chosen field by those currently working in those spheres of influence.
Kinahan Lodge will bring the one absolute needed in this world today. Hope! To have disciples become disciple-makers is part of the Great Commission. Expansion in YWAM is never about the number of students, nor the courses we run, or how many.
Bricks and mortar do not make disciples, Jesus does. But we are called “To go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation” ..(Mark 16:15) It is never about a building. It is always about the people who will use it and what the Lord has called them to. Kinahan Lodge will facilitate that call.
Luke 10:2 “The Harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the Harvest to send out workers into His harvest field”.
Our heart is to equip, mentor, create connections and internships for those called into this harvest field. Kinahan Lodge will be that place of inspiration, encouragement, prayer and the gaining of insights, knowledge and biblical worldview.
So Far …
We are now working towards completing the exterior, including landscaping, by the new quarter. The vision has shape and substance. It is wonderful to see the promises of God begin to unfold before our eyes.
