School of Ministry Development

Develop your leadership skills!


What is the SOMD?

Leadership schools come in different forms, designed to meet the needs of the students, equipping them for servant leadership, while giving opportunity for personal growth and development. During this school, students discover and develop their gifts and talents in leadership roles. The course is especially designed for new staff at YWAM centres and is adapted to the context of the language and culture of the country in which it is taught. Some of the topics are: understanding the core values of YWAM, perspectives on missions, generational thinking, transforming cultures, personal fund-raising, worship and evangelism, personal ministry development, public speaking, spiritual authority, and conflict resolution. This 12-week course will prepare each graduate to be on staff in YWAM anywhere around the world, or in a church setting.

The goal of the SOMD is to help you grow in personal character, practical skills, and motivation to do whatever it takes to see your God-given dreams fulfilled! This school will impart truth to you and teach you how to pass it on to others so God’s Kingdom will not only thrive, but expand!

*All schools are bilingual, Spanish and English.
