Are you wondering how to get your school or your new ministry location added on the websites of YWAM and the University of the Nations, here are the directions on how to do that.

Adding a new YWAM school or ministry location

If you are part of team that is pioneering a new YWAM ministry or school location and if you would like to add your location to the YWAM database please check the list of guidelines. If you are ready to proceed, please ask a convener or elder from your area to send an email verifying that the new location meets the criteria to: (Andy Elliott, Database Team) or cforbes(at)

OR have them login into the update system ( and use the 'New Operating Location' form to start the approval process. They will need some basic information in order to complete the form such as:

  • Name of the Person who is Affirming / Commissioning / Authorizing the new location and their email address
  • Location Name
  • Director's Name
  • Director's Email Address
  • Location's Email Address
  • City and Country of the new location
  • Primary Language spoken at this location

Guidelines for listing a new YWAM ministry or school location (sometimes known as an "operating location"):

  1. Physically and financially separate from other YWAM locations.
  2. Recognized leadership by the senior YWAM leadership over the area.
  3. Permanent YWAM presence. Not a temporary location, such as a location organized for an event.

These are general guidelines, and we are flexible, especially on the question of financial separateness.
