Youth With A Mission's University of the Nations (UofN)is truly unique. It's a global university designed to train students to be messengers of the Gospel into every sphere of society. This September, we had the privilege of hosting one of the biggest events on the YWAM calendar. The UofN Workshop is a gathering of staff and leaders of the university from all over the world. This year the conference was chosen to be held in our San Antonio Del Mar Campus, near Tijuana. the conference was attended by 800+ delegates from over 60 nations.
As Technical Manager, Tym had the job of turning the undeveloped land at the top of the YWAM base into a conference centre with a venue to seat 1000.
