WHAT IS THE UOFN WORKSHOP?

This event focuses to discover the prayer of Jesus “On Earth As It Is In Heaven” in great depths. The learning together, deep revelation, refreshing worship and ministry in the presence of God will empower us for greater impact and lasting fruitfulness in our Missions call to go and disciple all Nations. YWAM’s University of the Nations is convening this global Workshop 2017 at a beautiful conference center in San Jose, Costa Rica. The program will include keynote messages, space for individual meetings, celebrations, Bible studies and processing groups as well as much worship and ministry to one another. This global gathering is for the whole YWAM Family of ministries and is multilingual in Spanish, Portuguese and English.

PROGRAM

The Program focuses to discover the prayer of Jesus “On Earth As It Is In Heaven” in great depths. In the mornings we will engage with Bible Study embedded in worship to get a fresh revelation of Jesus as well as keynote messages. Skye Jethani, the author of the books “Futureville” and “With” will be one of the keynote speakers to enrich our dialogues and discussions with biblical understanding how our communities and world will look like as the prayer of Jesus gets step by step answered.

The late Afternoon sessions will focus on processing our main topic and look at application especially for the Three Big issues which are breaking God’s heart: Refugees, Orphans and Poverty. These sessions will be highly interactive and are well prepared to stimulate the learning as well as to discover the Word of God.

The Evening Sessions are focusing on Celebration and Worship. Some evenings are with optional programs or free.
