Visuals, both pictures and videos are important in todays interactions. What words lack is attraction. But put a colourful creation next to it draws our eyes. Especially when it something that hasn't been seen the day before. That's how we come up with the concept of the Featured Video and Featured Picture. Something new on the KB for every day.

Put shavingfoam on Our faces to be a target for flying cheesedoodles.


Crazy, Creative and Community. That's what it is when we jump into mud or put shavingfoam on our faces. Or playing a fanatic game of Settlers of Catan around a table. What about playing Wii, Nintendo or a RPG on your PC? Games connect and are fun. Or does it also stimulate too much living in a fantasy bubble? Well, use it with wisdom.. and try to beat your opponents in a loving way, more...

How To Add A New Picture

  • Click on it. You will see a template that you should use. Click on edit.
    • Fill in the name you gave to your picture. Tip: Keep the name short.

      • Example: [[File:Uofn_globe_mini.png|300px]]

Classic Africa.jpg


The continent which isn't poor, but seen as the most needy. It is struck by misery, but at the same time the place of hope. The most amazing thing is that God can use Africans to bring the change themselves. From the Sahara desert in the north to deep in jungle in the heart of Africa, more...

East and West.jpg

SBCW on tour

In the School of Biblical Christian Worldview(SBCW) minds are being challenged through learning about worldviews. Like the perspectives of East and West during the Cold War.

Youth Culture
Day 16
YWAM/UofN Campuses

Youth Culture

Youth With A Mission, is as the name it says youthful. Which means that many of the people who are part of this movement are young, fibrant, wild, energetic, riskful and passionate for Jesus. This is awesome and scary at the same time. Can the older generations of YWAMers still catch up with the new input? That's a huge challenge, more...

The Oval.JPG

The YWAM Campus

Through the University of the Nations YWAM developed campuses worldwide to equip missionaries for work among any group or sphere of society.

Sunset Brazil.jpg

Hot climate of the Americas

This is what I see and feel when I remember the beauty of the Southern Americas. It is hot, passionate and breath taking. Nature is amazing, the people are kind and very diverse. Behind this paradise, you will quickly see the opposite. Many people are living in miserable conditions. Even though the church has much influence, it is not seen as much in society. How long can we be lukewarm in a hot climate? more...

Well, we are moving on now to have internet on mobilephones, which can almost bring you deep into the jungle, more...

Day 22
YWAM Prison
Splash Wave.jpg

Small Waves

These waves are not that impressive, althought the splash against the rock is great. We do want to see bigger waves, especially because we know in YWAM what Loren saw: BIG WAVES. How is God working out that vision today? Are we feeling this roar coming up? Like a pororoca, big and lasting long, more...


YWAM Prison

What does that mean? Well, simple a YWAM Base located in a prison. This is the beautiful brick with bars building in the middle of downtown Skien in Norway. Ever wanted to live in a cell behind a heavy door? more...

Big Bible.jpg

Virgin Bible

This is what a new bible looks like before the School of Biblical Studies(SBS). But in 9 months time it will be read more than 5 times, colored on most likely every page and be roughed up. That is the passion for scripture, more...

On a Rock.JPG

Pretty (Scary) Locations

The up and down side of the mission is that we see much of the world. In a sense it looks like the ideal holiday. But it is all but a holiday. Pretty locations we do encounter and also enjoy. The knockout side is what we see beyond the side seeing. It is quite scary, more...

Day 26

Hot Spicy Food from Asia

Rice. Rice. Rice. And of course more rice. Although Asia has many different adds with rice and that is the most amazing thing about it. Never boring, unless you have only one add. Like the food, Asia has tons of different spicy flavors, would you like some more...

Movie Crew.jpg

Outreach life shoes.JPG

DTS means Dirtiness

Or does it? Having a lot of young people gathered in one place does create quite some mess. Knowing that most of them are in their late teens or early twenties, means that their mom did most of the cleaning for them on a daily basis. The challenge now for any school is to teach the basics of order, hygiene and sanitizing. Maybe they should even learn how to cook. Just some basic skills to survive in the world and certainly vital for being in missions, more...

Personal Office.jpg

The Office

Who are does people that stay indoors so much? Who live on coffee and tea? That work with numbers and important documents? Well, the office people. If they weren't around there wouldn't even be a YWAM missionary in the field. And they are far from being boring. They work hard and a lot behind the scene, more...

Church Ulm.jpg


The body of Christ. Believers and followers of Jesus coming together every sunday in a building like this, with a tower (This tower being the highest ever build).

The church, what a legacy and what an amazing place to meet people, who love Christ, more...

Jesus and Maria.jpg

The Messiah

Hallelujah! All praise to the one. Did you meet Him? Jesus of Nazareth? The son of a carpenter, named Joseph? He is the one of whom the Prophets speak. All scriptures are pointing at Him. He is the Messiah. Our Savior! The Son of God who defeated death by raising from the death after being crucified on the cross. He did that for your sinful life and mine to be reconnected in freedom with God, His Father, more...
