Because of our mandate to “know God and make Him known”, our goal is to disciple and train people with practical and relevant tools to achieve this in all cultures, nations and spheres of society, throughout their whole lives. Our training goes beyond academic and theoretical training and aims to provide people with real experience and practically equip people for their area of service.
Live - Learn
The YWAM model of training and discipleship is “live - learn”, recognising that learning doesn’t just take place in a classroom, but also through serving and living in community. That's why our lectures go hand in hand with one-on-one discipleship, small group discussions, team work and more.
Training and sending
As YWAM Bethlehem we're called to be a resting place for God, a resting place for people and a center for training and sending, a modern-day Antioch. Through our training schools - whether they are DTS's, second level schools or internships - we believe that every student will experience God's resting place here, as well as a rest amongst the community and in relationships where restoration and freedom will take place, and get an understanding of how to multiply Antioch centers around the world. Every training course leads directly into related ministry opportunities, both in the context of YWAM and further afield.
From the Ends of the Earth
We believe that from the Ends of the Earth, we will touch the nations of the Earth. The Lord has given us a clear mandate to focus on several geographical regions, among which are New Zealand, Fiji, Philippines, Korea, Japan, East Asia, Nepal and Turkey.
