Welcome to the University of the Nations (UofN)!

YWAM established this University in 1978 to empower people from all nations with relevant skills to disciple all areas of society with Kingdom of God principles. Everyone’s journey in the UofN begins with a Discipleship Training School, which then opens up to a world of educational possibilities. Click here for more information on the history and structure of the UofN.

YWAM Madison was established in 1986 in large part to further the goals of the UofN, and we have always had a strong emphasis on equipping young people and sending them out into their callings. Over the years, we have added several UofN courses to help you achieve your goals in education, missions, or simply your ongoing walk with Christ.
