Baan Jai Diaow is a student center that focuses on discipling students at Ramkamhaeng University. Baan Jai Diaow is positioned under YWAM Thailand and was founded in June 1995.
Baan Jai Diaow is a student center that offers a safe place to live and helps students complete their studies. It helps students get to know God and grow to become more like Christ. Once their lives are changed, students can be an influence to people around them and are able to reach out to their families, their communities, Thai society and neighboring countries.
We are committed to share the gospel, help students achieve their goals in their studies, and make disciples of Christ through evangelism, worship, one-on-one relationships, creative activities, training, and partnering with local churches, so they can effectively influence the seven spheres of society.
Discipleship - Our vision (goal) is discipleship according to the Great Commission of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). We do this by giving students opportunity to know God, study the Word of God, and live out the principles of a Godly life according to the Bible.
Helping the community and society - In order to give our students experience in building relationships and learn to be sacrificial by helping people, we find opportunities to work together with organizations and others in our community, throughout other provinces in Thailand and also in neighboring countries.
Evangelism - Baan Jai Diaow has a strong and determined heart to see the Great Commission come to pass. Therefore, every year we not only receive foreign teams but also create our own outreach teams to help people who need encouragement and those who have never heard the gospel before. Both staff and students come together to prepare, raise funds, and plan outreaches. We want to see the new generation in this age have passion in the Spirit of Christ.
Learning to be in community - Since many of our students come from different places with different cultures, we are able to learn the lifestyle and languages from many regions of Thailand. Furthermore, we have foreigners living and working with us which gives more variety while challenging us in new ways.
Building up abilities - We need to support every student in their gifting, talents and creativity in a positive way to enable them to influence their own communities. We give them the possibility to practice, perform and use their abilities to the fullest.
We receive several outreach teams every year who come to serve through evangelism, prayer, helping in different ways (repairs, painting or cleaning), teaching English, encouragement, supporting the BJD staff, spending one-on-one time with students, discipleship and using gifts such as worship, arts and other talents. This can have a big influence on students, as they are motivated to do the same. Teaching English and playing sports in the university is a great tool for making relationships. We welcome teams and individuals who want to serve with us, whether they are from YWAM or not. We receive both short and long term teams and individuals. Each case is considered in light of the person/group’s heart to serve and unique gifts.
