What They're Saying About Principles Made Practical... P248

  • NOTE: The three documents from which the guiding values throughout this handbook are drawn can be found in Appendixes A 1-3. These documents include "Principles to Define Changes and Growth of YWAM" (which will be abbreviated as "PDCG"), "The Foundational Values of Youth With A Mission" (which will be abbreviated "FV") and "The Manila Covenant" (which will be abbreviated "MC")... p The first two documents also include scripture references, which serve as Biblical foundations for the guiding values. Appendix A-4, "Founding Principles of the University of the Nations" is also key to understanding the unique calling and composition of the U of N.
