V2 Life began in Vanuatu in 2009 with a vision: to train young people to become all that God wants them to be, so that they could carry the gospel of Jesus to the unreached communities of the world. We started with the goal of teaching young aspiring missionaries how to both understand the bible in our training centre, and how to apply it to community development using training on our farm which equips them with sustainable development capability.
Soon after we began our first missionary training in 2012, our neighbours asked for a school. Their children had no access to education in our relatively remote area, and as missionaries they saw us as the answer to that need. In prayer, our vision grew and we found ourselves building a kindergarten. With support from churches, governments and private donors, a kindergarten became a small primary school building in 2016, and the vision grew. Teouma Christian Academy currently provides Kindergarten to Primary education and continues to grow. In 2028 our first students are expected to graduate High School.
V2 Life is part of the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) family of ministries. YWAM is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to serving Jesus around the world. YWAM has been operating for nearly 60 years and has a presence in more than 1000 locations in over 140 countries, with over 15,000 full time volunteer missionaries. YWAM’s main ministries fit into three main categories: evangelism, training, and mercy ministries. V2 Life operates in relationship with YWAM Vanuatu and YWAM International through shared purpose, vision, and values.
“V2 Life is responding to the needs of children and young people in the area of training, both non-formal, and formal in order for them to be in a better position to succeed in today’s demanding world.”
