YWAM Wollongong

Offered in: English

The School of Missions is an overview of missions with some specific skills training introduced during an initial three-month course and then developed further during the field assignment. Topics include: biblical and historical foundations for missions; the nature of the Church; intercultural communication (principles of and skills for learning another language and culture); missions strategy (evangelism and church planting, church growth, intercession and spiritual warfare, healing, signs and wonders, relief and development); personal and team relationships (the workers relationship with God, interpersonal relationships, leadership and authority, team building and team dynamics, developing and relating with a prayer/financial support team). The School of Missions is offered with a focus on the unreached, unengaged peoples of the world with a particular emphasis on Muslims. The purpose is to train workers for living and ministering among these unreached people groups with church planting as a key strategy in discipling new converts and engaging the different spheres of society to see wholistic transformation in communities and nations. Our hope is on deploying pioneering teams as the basic vehicle for addressing strategic areas of need throughout the world. Strategic missions embraces both short-term and long-term strategies to accomplish all aspects of ministry, including the planting of both local churches and missions structures. The SOSM seeks to equipe individuals and teams to pioneer new ministries in geograpical areas and societal spheres, and to help clarify callings, develop vision and learn how to implement a pioneer project.
