Welcome to the website of University of the Nations in Battambang, Cambodia
We’ve been in Battambang since January 2006. It’s very exciting to be a part of what God is doing in His beloved nation of Cambodia. We spend our time focused on evangelism, training, and mercy ministries.
Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.
Founded upon biblical principles, the University of the Nations (U of N) fulfils its commitment to Christ and His Great Commission by equipping men and women spiritually, culturally, intellectually, and professionally, and inspiring them to use their God-given abilities to communicate and demonstrate the gospel in all nations.
“Equipping and Empowering to bring Transformation to Communities in Cambodia, Southeast Asia and to the Ends of the Earth.” Our heart is that we would be a platform for the indigenous people to rise up and influence all spheres of society in their nation with the love of Jesus.
Approximately 80% of the Cambodian population is under the age of 30, so much of our ministry is with young adults, youth, and children.
Sixty years ago God took the nation of South Korea which was coming out of war, was highly culturally Buddhist and one of the poorest nations in Asia and changed that nation in one generation. We believe that God wants to do a similar thing in this generation in Cambodia. The Khmer find themselves in a similar place to South Korea 60 years ago. As God moved in a generation in Korea 60 everything has changed as they are now one of the wealthier nations in the world, over 40% Christian and the 2nd highest sending nation of Christian missionaries in the world. As the Body of Christ responded to God’s heart for Korea God transformed a nation in one generation. We believe that is God’s heart in this generation for Cambodia, the only question is will the Body of Christ rise up?
