U of N Student Mobilization Centre
The U of N Student Mobilization Centre is an international network equipping student ministry workers and mobilizing student teams to serve cross-cultural missions projects. To accomplish this, three types of SMC programs are available:
- Field Ministry Internships: this principal programme of the SMC is for short-term teams of university student volunteers who serve communities in long-term projects at various levels of development.
- Seminars: these 1- to 6-week specialized training modules are designed for both students and leaders. Current seminars include: Fundamentals for Student Ministries (FSM), Foundations for Biblical Christianity (FFBC), and the Vision Leadership Training Course (VLTC).
- The School of University Ministries and Missions, a 12-week course designed to equip YWAM staff and UofN students.
All SMC programmes and resources are designed to:
- Present the gospel to students through a variety of ministries and media.
- Disciple students by modeling a godly lifestyle and by providing various training opportunities - primarily in a livelearn environment.
- Reveal the thrill and wonder of hearing God’s voice and interceding for the nations.
- Serve student needs through lasting friendship and caring community, especially international students.
- Impart an understanding that God is central to the learning process and that He is with them in the difficult questions that challenge their faith.
- Encourage students to serve God’s purposes, using their university training while expressing the knowledge of God in every arena of society.
- Partner to serve the needs of communities through YWAM ministries, churches, and other organizations internationally.
- Proclaim that the university is a key doorway for the Body of Christ to reach and teach the nations - especially through ministry to international students from creative access nations.
- Integrate the diverse programs of YWAM and U of N, especially the Discipleship Training School, so as to present them in university communities around the world.
