YWAM England and Wales UofN Coordinator - Job Description
The UofN prefers the term coordinator to director because the essence of the job is not to be in charge of training, but to release others into their areas of ministry. Let us take the warning of Dr Ted Ward seriously; "Beware of people who have a tendency or need to control."</noinclude>
