The Kokua Crew and Mission Builder s is a program where it gives an opportunity fr people around the globe to volunteer their time and energy to helping the needs of the University of the Nations. The volunteer’s works in areas such as kitchen, house Keeping, Pre School, Mainenance, Construction and Mechanics.

Theat is to name a few, other side of the program is the most important one we believe that everyone that comes to the program has something to learn about their relationship with God and each other.

We want to equipped Christians with tools to walk their daily walk with what this world throws at them. We also teach about the important value in the word of God and Relationship with each other and what Church is all about.

How we implement this is by having devotions together, Bible studies, Prayer for one another, One on Ones with as staff. We encourage and uplift, speaking Truth and life.

The other part of the discipleship is learning to have fun! After all we are in Hawaii!! Loving God by loving what He gave us in terms of its natural beauty and friendships.

YWAM  •  Youth With A Mission

We as the Kokua Crew & Mission Builder Program are under the wing of the global Missions Organisation called “Youth with a Mission” (short : YWAM).

Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.

Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth involved in missions. Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people aged 9 to 90. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.

One of the joys of participating in YWAM is to work with people from many nations. YWAM’s staff (known as “YWAMers”) come from over 130 countries, including places like Indonesia, Nepal, Mozambique, and Colombia.
