Our Vision

We dream of people who worship God in Spirit and Truth because they have had a personal,
and life-changing, encounter with Him. People who walk with God, creating life everywhere they go.

These are people

Who love - because they are loved
Who forgive - because they are forgiven
Who provide comfort - because they have been comfort
Who see other people - because they have been seen
Who are seeking - because they have been found
Who include other - because they themselves have been included

These are people who have found their strength in God.

As described in Psalm 84, they make the world a better place!
We believe God has given us a mandate to reach out to people, especially in the small places, in Nordland, and throughout the rest of the world.

Our center

YWAM Nordland is situated in a quaint little village in Northern Norway. Each fall we expectantly welcome the new students. We delight in blending the many cultures represented in to one happy "family". It is a house full of laughter and joyful memories!

Our ministries

UIO Nordland is here to serve those around us. Below are several ways we work to contribute to our community and society as a whole.

Youth Work
One of the most important things we can do is to invest in children and youth. A safe atmosphere allows them to be themselves and make good friends. UIO Nordland does this through camps and youth clubs in the community.

Local Ministry
We involve ourselves in our village and nearby communities by helping in schools, doing practical work, helping with events and encouraging local Christians who might be the only ones in their area.

Træna-team
Trænafestivalen is a popular music festival which takes place on the island of Træna every summer. For the last few years UIO Nordland has sent teams to help with practical things. We want to show God's love through meeting and serving residents/visitors. We often end up having good conversations about God!

Our staff
We come from many countries around the world. We each bring an interesting piece to our "cultural pie" that is YWAM Nordland! Some countries our staff have come from include: Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland, Australia, Iceland, Chile, Finland, USA and Canada.

UIO Nordland needs workers!
