Châtel is a 5 acre training center and Christian community situated halfway between Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland. It is a ministry of YWAM INTERNATIONAL University of the Nations.

The YWAM Châtel Centre has two primary objectives:

Training for students who are interested in learning to minister through an integrated approach to wholeness in counseling and who desire to bless the nations, especially in the developing world, through these skills. There are a variety of 12 week full-time courses relating to the different fields of counseling. A yearly CDTS is a means of equipping people at a crossroads to pursue God's calling for their lives.

Our second objective is to be a community where restoration can happen. Each of us is involved, not only in our area of specialty, but also in the day to day operations of the community. This draws us together and provides an environment where living and learning are interwoven. Through hospitality we provide a place of rest and mediation. The beautiful setting has ministered to many visitors.
