Anyone can add news to this page. Soon we will make a template to make this process easier. So come back soon.
Check out the News of today and of the past:
Silently it passed by. 10 years. That's how young the YWAMKB is. There are no big celebrations, but it is certainly something to give notice to. Look at the first page, see how little there was: First Welcome. It was the start of what the KB is today. So as in those days: Welcome and we hope you will enjoy and find what you are looking for. - Arnoud
After the games
The Olympic Games are finished. As viewer I have seen many different sports. It will take another 4 years for the next edition in Japan. And will YWAM go there too? Hopefully yes. Right now I took on a challenge too by translating some pages on Wikipedia. My experience with the YWAM KB makes it easy to get around. But it certainly is another learning experience. The Wiki community is huge and very active. I am really curious about how it works. One of the suggestions I got is to go to the Café. Which is nothing more than a page on Wikipedia, so no drinks. But it is a place to share on certain topics. On the YWAM KB we do have the community page. This is our own Café. But maybe it needs some refurbishing, to make it more attractive and inviting. - Arnoud
Good Start(See this link). So far gathering knowledge has been slow and quite hard. Although things look a lot better now than at the start of the year. As promoter I had some great interaction. Facebook has been helpful and I was able to reach many different YWAM locations around the world. I found out there are still many YWAMers who don't know about the YWAM Knowledge Base. So some are surprised and many are positive. If that is you, you are welcome. Next I would like to invite you to share your knowledge. What you learn in the mission, can be really useful for other YWAMers. And if you are a receiver of great insight, you can pass that on as well. Videos, books, PDFs, all is welcome. So join in, I'll be glad to help you if you need a hand. - Arnoud
We need youYWAM. Somehow one of us is becoming a pastor, the other is delivering the mail and one is on the move. Quite strange, but this just happened to be so and also not that easy to change (I tried, didn't work).
In this way we as a team are missing the fresh input that many of you YWAMers are receiving. Of course we love to keep on building a great website, but we need you. Do you love the ministry you're in? Do you enjoy your school? Did you experience something awesome with God today or some time ago? And you would like to share the knowledge you gained, well.. share it here. The KB has space enough. Do you want some help, got a question or want to encourage the team, send a message to this admin of the YWAM KB team: Mail for the YWAMKB Team
Thanks for your support and visit.
Fans on Facebook
It is great to see how many new fans joined the Facebook group last year. From 150 at the start of 2014 till more than 1100 now. And that without any extra promotion from the YWAM KB team. We would like to thank all the people who have given the KB a thumbs up and who stimulated others to do so as well. It really means a lot to us. Link to the fanpage on Facebook
One Thousand Pages
A seed was planted, which grew and grew and grew. Now it is a big tree with more than 1000 pages. And the KB will continue with growing more.
A new project has been started to collect more knowledge. A lot of it can be found easily on the internet. But to have a complete overview of all YWAM schools isn't that easy. That is why we have a new page where a lot of this information has already been gathered. Both the UofN website and Google are useful, but not everything can be found there. Some schools can only be found at specific YWAM bases. So we are on a mission here. This information will never be complete, but you are welcome to help us collect more and even start new pages for the schools that are listed here: List of schools in YWAM
The whole world is watching the ball as it is kicked around. These weeks a lot of people are having their TV sets on and look at what their team will do. When we do that we also look at the nation where the games are played: Brazil. What is happening there besides the World Cup? What is YWAM(JOCUM) doing at these games? Well you can follow that here:
Or when you didn't get the opportunity to get to Brazil, maybe you like to know more about the next sport event, The Olympic Games:
With the help of 20+ new translated pages in Dutch the Knowledge Base has grown to 900 pages. This growth will continue with translation of more articles.
Recently there has also been made a start with Hindi and we are negotiating about translating into Portuguese. Maybe our readers are interested in getting involved and volunteer. Connect with us if you would like to join: Send an Email.

Another Half a MileAn astonishing growth in the last two months, which has not been seen since the early beginnings of the YWAM Knowledge Base. It is absolutely great to see that with coöperation a lot of new pages were added. And it will most likely continue for a while. Keep an eye on our next projects and if you want join us in making it to the next mile to be reached. more about the next projects...
Another Mile reachedJust a few days after reaching 750 pages the YWAM KB reached another mile. How did that come about? Simple: editing. By editing some of the smaller pages it made them grow just enough to become a full page. This is why we encourage our KB writers to make a full page. But it is not only editing that caused this rapid growth. There are also complete new pages added to the knowledge of the YWAM KB. So keep going. Great job! We are always up for more. more about writing articles on the KB...
New Mile reachedIn only a few months the YWAM KB grew with more than 50 pages. New ideas are shared and many contributions were given. Even more growth can be seen in visitors and quite some records are broken. Check out the statistics to see how all graphs are steady and going upwards. Thanks to you all, visitors and contributors. more statistics...
Renewal MAINPAGE completed
The project for renewal of the Main Page has finally been completed by setting in motion the template for Featured Pictures. It took about 6+ months, but results are amazing. All glory to God for making it all come together. More changes are still to be made, but the set up plan is fully completed.
The picture shows the plan on the old page. One feature is taken out and there are other things done which were not included in this plan. more...
Wiki WritingWriting in Wiki is simple and it has been made even more simple now. Lots of work went into it, but we are glad with presenting the results: How to write in Wiki. Now you can learn the basics with which you can create a complete page or go to advanced to be able to pull of some more tricks. Some more is coming up on these pages soon. Like how to put colors on your page.
Beyond a Milestone
The growth of articles has been slowly reaching to the top of 700 pages! This is a great achievement and a huge milestone. Thanks to everyone who has been helping to make this possible. Our aim is to go much further. Not necessarily in numbers, because it is not about the size. The Knowledge Base can also grow through revisions and expansions. We invite you to help us. We especially challenge you to use the knowledge on this website and put it into action. So let's continue walking for God.
The Blue KB Tree
The Mainpage of the YWAM Knowledge Base is being radically changed. A lot of things have been drastically removed and now slowly new things are put in. It is like the process described by farmers as pruning and fertilizing. We are taking care of this page like a tree. The roots are fed with fresh fertilizer. Broken branches are removed with a saw. And the branches that remain get a special pruning treatment so that the tree will florish and give fruit in the coming seasons. (more...)
