A Life Lived Together

We believe that learning takes place best in the context of relationships and place a high value on living together in community. Due to this we’ve created a live-learn context for our training courses, with both students and staff living, sharing meals and working together on campus.

Campus Ministries


We love connecting with you before you even arrive! Our communication team is dedicated to listening to God and calling people into missions from all over the world. Relationship is so important to us, and we want all our students to know they’ll have friends waiting for them when they arrive at our campus.


Working hand-in-hand with our communications team, our media staff are committed to creating content and sharing stories of what God is doing through YWAM Newcastle as well as serving students by sharing practical tips, tricks and directions for making your time with us as smooth as possible.


We believe in practicing hospitality and have a team committed to creating homely spaces for all our guests, staff and students. From making up beds to planning and decorating for events, this team is one of the lifebloods of our community.


Who doesn’t love eating with friends?! We believe that some of the most influential moments for developing relationships occur around the dinner table. Preparing meals for 100+ people is no small feat and our kitchen team is dedicated to serving us daily.


As our campus has grown, so have our properties. From lawn care through to home renovations, we do it all. Over the years our staff have developed many practical skills, whether it’s plastering, woodwork, painting or plumbing, this team not only serves us faithfully, but gains knowledge they can carry with them into the rest of life.


As our staff team grows, so does our priority on building up well-rounded individuals. We see on-going discipleship, regular personal development opportunities and pastoral care as essentials to a healthy, holistic lifestyle.


From accounting to insurance and meeting all that is required to allow us to operate effectively, our team strives to uphold the values of honesty, integrity and transparency. We are constantly developing our knowledge and skills to represent the Kingdom of God within the frameworks of the Australian Government offices and on the international stage as a university campus and not-for-profit charity.


Much of what we do is in the public eye and as such we want to communicate with integrity the training and community work we are involved in. This encompasses writing press releases, liaising with media personnel and connecting with government officials at both a local and international level.
