Where The Spheres Tell Their Stories
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.
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 is a place for all people from the spheres of society to come together and tell their stories. It is a home for collaboration, innovation and the discovery of God’s heart for individuals and their places of work.
Overlooking open fields near one of the oldest bluebell woodlands in Hertfordshire, our custom-built lodge will have a commercial kitchen, ten bedrooms, which can house up to 25, and host up to 60 guests.
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.
So Far …
Kinahan Lodge has reached the point of lockup and is watertight with all windows and doors installed. The building is now ready for the internal fit, interior design, and the beginning of landscaping.
