    In this inspiring talk, Loren Cunningham talks about what it means to serve God and “inherit the earth”. Through stories of God’s miraculous favour, provision, and grace, he inspires us to humbly serve God in whatever capacity He has placed us.

    I have made the earth, the men and the beasts which are on the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and I will give it to the one who is pleasing in My sight. (Jeremiah 27:5)

    We are challenged to involve God in ALL that we do:

    Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (1 Peter 4:11)

    Leadership and Eldership in YWAM – Lynn Green

    Late last year Lynn Green sat down to discuss Leadership and Eldership in Youth With A Mission, and to answer some questions that people around the world had about the changes and development of it in YWAM. Lynn Green spoke with Lynn Yee for three different sessions, which we've put together into this podcast so that you can hear it all in a single session.



    Some of the questions that they address in this podcast are:



    * Plural Leadership

    * What is an Elder

    * The role of conveners in YWAM

    * Why the need for the significant organisational change for YWAM in Singapore in 2014

    * How does YWAM's flat leadership structure work cross-culturally

    * The importance of relationship over hierarchy

    * Accountability structures

    * more ...



    Lynn Green and his wife Marti first came to England and began the work of Youth With A Mission there in 1971. From 2004-2011 Lynn was YWAM’s International Chairman. He continues to convene YWAM’s global leadership meetings, and focuses much of his energy on international leadership development. Lynn Green also blogs at lynngreen.net, where you can find more of his thoughts and teachings.

    The Cross – Loren Cunningham

    The Cross – Loren Cunningham

    In this episode of the Youth With A Mission Teaching Podcast Loren Cunningham shares with us a teaching about The Cross.



    Loren Cunningham is the founder of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and the co-founder of the University of the Nations (U of N). He is also a leader at the YWAM, U of N Campus in Hawaii, and a member of the YWAM International Eldership.



    In this teaching Loren invites us to stop at the cross and consider God’s love for us. He shares that though we don't have to understand all the technicalities of atonement to experience salvation, it is good to understand and appreciate it more fully.



    Loren describes how through the Cross, God meets the conditions of both justice and mercy. We see the horror of sin and the reformation of the sinner. We see the law upheld and the welfare of the community considered. In the cross we see the evidence of God's incredible love for us.

    More Than Conquerors



    What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? (Romans 8, 31-32)

    Loren Cunningham is the founder of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and the co-founder of the University of the Nations (U of N). He is also a leader at the YWAM, U of N Campus in Hawaii, and a member of the YWAM International Eldership.



    Loren speaks on this teaching about leadership and draws a parallel to the shepherd:



    “Know well the condition of your flock and pay attention to your herds” (Prov 27: 23).



    He emphasises the great responsibility of leadership and discusses the different roles that a leader must carry. He speaks of the leader’s responsibility to obey God in action, and submit to God and others, in heart.

    Then the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. Prophesy and say to those shepherds, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Woe, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flock? “You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat sheep without feeding the flock. “Those who are sickly you have not strengthened, the diseased you have not healed, the broken you have not bound up, the scattered you have not brought back, nor have you sought for the lost; but with force and with severity you have dominated them. “They were scattered for lack of a shepherd, and they became food for every beast of the field and were scattered. “My flock wandered through all the mountains and on every high hill; My flock was scattered over all the surface of the earth, and there was no one to search or seek for them.”’ (Ezekiel 34:1-7)

    How to Pray for Someone’s Salvation – Tom Bloomer

    How to Pray for Someone’s Salvation – Tom Bloomer

    Tom Bloomer shares with us about his conversion testimony and also about how we should pray for the salvation of people we care about on this episode of the YWAM Teaching Podcast at ywampodcast.net/teaching.



    Tom Bloomer studied archaeology at the University of Illinois (B.A. 1972), and worked as a house painter, French translator, and ladies' shoe salesman before marrying Cynthia. In 1983 they responded to a call from Loren Cunningham and Howard Malmstadt to help develop the University of the Nations (UofN).



    A Master's degree in Intercultural Studies from Wheaton in 1987 and years of experience in cross-cultural education proved invaluable as Tom helped coordinate, refine, and improve the different courses developing through the UofN. Tom completed a Ph.D. in Education Science at Trinity International University in 1999.



    Tom Bloomer has served as the International Provost of the University of the Nations since 2001. Tom lives at one of the UofN’s mini-campuses in French-speaking Switzerland, and is committed to teaching and mentoring students and staff.



    When I was in Switzerland I had the privilege of hearing Tom Bloomer speak on my communications school and he also guided our school on a tour of Geneva. Tom is an inspiring teacher, with an exciting testimony and some great stories of God's Faithfulness.



    Lots of us pray for our loved ones, often without success. Often we pray wrong without thinking seriously about it. Tom Bloomer shares with us in this podcast about some Biblical strategies of effective prayer ...
