A successfully completed Discipleship Training School
The Youth Ministry Training school is designed for those who will be working with youth through local church, YWAM, or in other youth focused organisations.
Discover innovative tools to successfully pioneer and establish new youth ministries or take existing ministries to the next level.
Explore topics such as God's heart for youth, engaging youth culture, trends and church expressions, models of innovation, qualities of a leader, vision and goal-setting, spiritual authority and servanthood.
The school will help you form teams for learning and ministering together.
During lecture phase you will have the opportunity to put in practice what you're learning in the classroom straight away as we partner with existing youth ministries.
On top of amazing lectures, there will be plenty of opportunities to gain extra skills. From budgeting to storytelling, counseling to art evangelism there will be a number of workshops to personalise your training. Some topics are set before the school and others are added in response to student request - let us know if there is a workshop that you would be interested in to see if we can make it happen...
You will get the chance to work in teams and create an innovative solutions in response to an ongoing youth issue. Whether that's homelessness, bullying, alcoholism or mobilising youth into missions, it is your choice. From the concept to planning to the realisation, it will be in your hands. The only limitations are the ones you put on yourself.
The field assignment is vital in giving you an opportunity to apply the practical aspects of all that you learned during your lecture phase while getting input from experienced youth leaders. You will engage with young people cross-culturally in a variety of settings giving you a board experience of youth ministry and an opportunity to connect with established ministries.
You will learn flexibility, how to pray until you get breakthrough, how to create on-the-go activities, on hand discipleship !
Skate-parks, beaches, malls, the streets.... through sports, art or simply walking up to people, telling others about Jesus is a privilege we will put in practice in lots of ways all throughout outreach.
During outreach there will be lots of chances to conduct innovative seminars. Seminars topics vary from family relationships, decision making, relationships, substance abuse and more.
Participating in camps run by YWAM Perth's youth ministry could mean doing a scavenger hunt around the city or coming alongside of young people doing evangelism for the first time...but one thing for sure, it will be a blast and give you an opportunity to step into leadership and come up with some projects of your own.
