The Kona Mission Builder Program was started to help to expand the campus of the University of the Nations. Due to the increasing number of young people joining our base each year our campus is in need of larger training facilities.
The Mission Builder program brings together skilled individuals and talented craftsmen from all around the world to complete the construction of several key facilities at the Kona base.
A Day in the life of a Mission Builder
Our Mission Builders wake up at 5.30 a.m. to be shuttled by our YWAM vans to campus for devotionals, which start at 6.00 a.m. After our devotion, we have breakfast from 6.30 a.m. to 7.00 a.m. At 7.00 a.m. we start working. We work from 7.00 a.m. until 3.00 p.m. Monday to Friday and stop for our lunch break from 11.30am to 12.30pm. During the day, you’ll be assigned to a work project, such as building railings, drywall construction, tile laying, concrete work or any currently needed skilled work.
Do you have a heart for missions — and especially Youth with A Mission — then come and join in our short-term volunteer program called Mission Builder.
You’ll have a specific arrival and departure date where you will serve in any of these projects on campus for the time you are with us:
Kitchen (all volunteers serve here at least part of their stay)
