THE YWAM OXFORD
vision

Our vision is to see hearts revived, refreshed and renewed and from this God's love can be poured out on others in our community, in NZ and in the nations. We do this through our training schools, through living and working in community and through any other means that God may show us.

OUR VALUES
BEING RESTORED
We desire that people’s hearts are restored in God's presence. As we are restored we can help others in their journey of restoration.
ADVENTUROUS
We believe that our faith journey is one of adventure and life. Our Father invites us to go on an adventure with him and we embrace this journey.
MISSIONAL
We believe that the love we receive needs to be shared into every sphere of society in NZ and beyond.
SAFE PLACE
We believe YWAM Oxford is a safe place where people are free to be themselves and can take off their 'masks'. People feel accepted and loved and this gives them freedom to grow in the discovery of who they truly are.
CREATIVE
We believe that one of the expressions of being God's children is being creative. We encourage creative expression through worship, art, the performing arts and any other form of creative expression.
IDENTITY AS
GOD'S CHILDREN
We find our identity in being beloved sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. This identity comes from knowing God as Abba and and living in this reality daily.
PIONEERING
We have been called to be a pioneering base in which new training schools and ideas flow out of. Our base has been a catalyst for many new ideas and schools in YWAM.
FAMILY
We are a group of people of different age groups and nationalities called to be a family together. We are an interconnected, multi-generational family doing life together. Our aim is that YWAM Oxford would feel like a home more than an institution.
