God must have had fun creating New Zealand. The alpine scenery around Queenstown is a constant reminder of God’s creativity and majesty, making it a great place to connect with the Maker of it all!
As you grow in love with the Word and it’s author, Queenstown provides one of the most remarkable backdrops on earth, with scenic mountains framing the shores of Lake Wakatipu, surroundings that so clearly depict the creative hand of God.
YWAM Queenstown is a vibrant new base, one of the fastest growing in YWAM’s history. Planted by God in one of New Zealand’s main tourist hotspots, about three million visitors from around the globe flock to Queenstown annually. This is a place that the nations come to. However, God has earmarked Queenstown as a place to train His people and send them out to the nations. God has amazing plans, which we’re delighted to watch unfold! Our heart is to be a centre where people can discover their identity and calling, be trained, prepared and equipped, and then released to carry it out.
A big focus of YWAM Queenstown is on sharing the Good News, both with the local community, and out in the nations. Abroad, the base has a particular heart for South East Asia – specifically Papua New Guinea – and the Pacific. We wish the DBS to reflect the broader base’s focus on local and international outreach, and take Bible knowledge to the nations and communities where there is so much need for it.
