Nations Team – Inspire, Mobilise, Equip, Long-Term Impact.
Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. Habakkuk 1:5 (NIV)
With the promise God has given us to look to the nations and be utterly amazed, there comes a responsibility in taking up our part. Our weekly rhythms of worship, intercession, and spiritual formation keep us connected with God’s heart and allow us to be a bridge for others to step into their dreams in the nations.
All that we do flows from the common thread of God’s heart for the lost in the nations. Our four pillars that describe who we are and what we do are:
Inspire – Exploring what it looks like to inspire our YWAM community to look towards the nations. We also have a vision to inspire churches, youth groups, University students, and more.
Mobilise – “Break our heart for what breaks Yours” – creating opportunities for exposure to different cultures and experience what it means to receive God’s heart for the nations. We want to send at least four different outreaches per year to specific nations where we can build connections and strategically have long-term impact. There are also many opportunities for local outreaches in nearby towns and Glasgow.
Equip – We want to be equipped with specific tools like debriefing, member care, inner healing ministry, specific cultural orientation, evangelism training, spiritual formation, etc. Our heart is to plant new teams in other nations, as well as to minister to long-term workers on the field through these tools as in our Homecoming ministry.
Long-term Impact – Strategically impacting the nations by sending and planting people in the countries they are called to and to continue sending teams to these new locations. Growing in connections and making sure people stay healthy on the field.
