On the Big Island of Hawaii sits the University of the Nations Kona campus, also known as YWAM Kona. It was YWAM’s first university campus and now trains thousands of students every year, sending them out all over the globe. The legacy of this island continues as vessels carry their students on field assignments serving their neighbors around the Pacific Rim.
