The Seven Spheres of Influence – Loren Cunningham

Loren CunninghamOne of the key foundational principles to the establishment of the University of the Nations, Youth With A Mission’s training arm, is the idea of the seven spheres, influences, or mountains, of society. The seven spheres are:

  • Family
  • Religion / Church
  • Education
  • Government
  • Media
  • Celebration (Arts, Entertainment, and Sports)
  • Economics (Business, Science, and Technology

The idea behind the seven spheres is that it is through influencing those areas of society, that the entire society can be influenced with the gospel.

In this episode of the YWAM Teaching Podcast Loren Cunningham, the founder of Youth With A Mission and the University of the Nations, shares about those seven spheres, and how God is influencing the nations through them …

He is also the leader of the YWAM UofN Campus in Hawaii and a member of the YWAM International Eldership.

God’s Love – Corrie Ten Boom

In this episode of the YWAM Teaching Podcast we continue our series of teaching from Corrie Ten Boom with her teaching about God’s Love

The Hiding Place Corrie Ten BoomCorrie Ten Boom was an inspiration to many, including Youth With A Mission (YWAM) staff and students to whom she shared her story.

Together with her family she stood up against the Nazi regime in Holland during the Second World War. In their house in the Netherlands they hid many different people who were on the run from the Nazi Gestapo. Unfortunately the Ten Boom family was betrayed and they were put into prison, and later sent to concentration camps. There Corrie was able to share the gospel with her fellow prisoners, who lived in horrible conditions together. Through a miracle Corrie got released, but from her family, she was the only one who survived.

She shares her story in many books, of which the Hiding Place was made into a movie with the same title. Her story is significant because of what God did in her life and that of others, both during and after the war. (source: YWAM Memorial)

We hope that you are blessed by this classic YWAM teaching…

“There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.”

The Way of Love

[1] If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. [2] And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. [3] If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

[4] Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant [5] or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; [6] it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. [7] Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

[8] Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. [9] For we know in part and we prophesy in part, [10] but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. [11] When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. [12] For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

[13] So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

(1 Corinthians 13 ESV)
