College of Arts & Sports University of the Nations

The College of Arts & Sports equips men and women spiritually, culturally, intellectually, physically and professionally, inspiring them to use their God-given abilities to communicate and demonstrate the Gospel in all nations through a vast range of artistic and sports expressions.

Our courses are designed to achieve an integrated approach to ministry, including evangelism, celebration, and training to meet the challenges of an increasingly globalized society, which universally intersects through arts and sports expressions.

Our cornerstone is the Word of God, and we recognize that it is “in Him we live, and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28) and that we as His people are created to praise Him (Isaiah 43:21).

We aim to be salt and light in the vast and diverse realms of arts and sports. It is imperative that we develop godly character and display biblical truths to current and future generations, giving glory to God through arts and sports. Our courses teach individuals and teams to think biblically and apply scriptural truth and prepare students to bring the whole Gospel to the nations using their talents, gifts and abilities to display God’s heart for man.

We are constantly upgrading and expanding our course offerings to meet the challenges of diversification and innovation in today’s societies. Our newest courses range from fashion and culinary arts (which highlight social conscience and fair trade as well as individual values) to free sports and outdoor adventure training.

We offer training in disciplines as diverse as music, dance, sports and fitness coaching, theater, visual arts, songwriting, event management, sports ministry, recreation, cultural expressions, nutrition, fine arts, worship ministry, and more.

To see all the courses we offer, go to the College of Arts and Sports page of www.uofn.edu or to www.ywamcas.org.
