Training is one of three strands of ministry weaving throughout everything we do as YWAM. Our training aims to equip followers of Christ to partner with others in everything from agriculture to linguistics to drug rehabilitation to cross-cultural ministry and more. As YWAM Founder Loren Cunningham put it when YWAM's training was first beginning, “In our training we'd stress relationships with God and with each other. We would use a floating faculty of experts who would come alternately to live with the students in the village lifestyle of Asia and the Pacific. The emphasis would be on learning through doing.”
Every training program reflects YWAM's heartbeat and purpose: to know God and to make Him known. It is an intensive learning program usually lasting from three to nine months in which students concentrate on one subject at a time, combining the learning of theory with practical application. Many have both a "study" phase and a practical application or "outreach" phase. For many YWAM students, the depth of learning combined with community living - often with fellow students from many nations - makes for a life-changing experience.
