School of Ministry Development ( CHR 241 )

YWAM LA is one of the 40 largest YWAM bases in the world and we are located in the second largest city in America. The SOMD was started on this base in 1998. The purpose of the school was to better equip DTS Graduates who wanted to join YWAM. Now we build on that purpose by including leadership and effective ministry in the Body of Christ as well as in the varying spheres of society. The SOMD is a training course designed to sharpen leadership skills and equip students for effective personal ministry. The school focuses on seeing growth in character, practical skills and servant leadership. Students will learn to identify and appreciate the contributions of their unique personalities and natural abilities; and learn to identify and articulate their own core values. Participants will grapple with the concepts of what it means to have an “Effective Personal Ministry” based on principles lived and taught by the Apostle Paul. Participants will also receive practical guidelines for long-term success in ministry by looking at their own personal foundations, habits and character. SOMD’s blend of leadership and ministry development focus, for the purpose of activating change in the world has helped its students to go on to be fruitful in ministry, many have even pioneered new things as a result of the guidance and training received during SOMD. Many missionaries are sent out from America, few finish well. Our emphasis is about 2/3 on developing the individual to be set up for success in ministry means. As we develop this, we then seek to marry these ideas with the God given calling for your life and ministry. Without a solid foundation, even the best made plans in the world will crumble when the storms hit. These principles translate into any cultural, ministerial or societal sphere to be an effective agent of change.

We want these flames of revival lit in our hearts and stoked into unquenchable blazing fires that we may become carriers of revival; bringing it with us to the mission field, whether it is across the street or across the sea. Ignite is four weeks of focused training in life in the Spirit and supernatural ministry. It’s a live in intensive training program focused on intimacy with God, the character of a revivalist, physical and inner healing, the prophetic, intercession and planting prayer furnaces in the hardest and darkest places on earth. We plan to have prayer and worship going throughout ignite and will be doing weekly encounter rooms. We’ll also be doing some treasure hunting and practicing power evangelism in the community. The classroom, the prayer room, the “Healing Rooms”, and outreach will all be integrated into a “spirit-and-truth” encounter with the love and power of God. We will be looking at supernatural ministry through the lens of the great commandment (love), and the great commission–taking the “Gospel of the Kingdom” to the darkest places on earth. Ignite is designed for those who are hungry for more of the supernatural work of God, both in their relationship with Him and in their ministry. If you are hungry for a deeper and more intimate relationship with God; if you long to run hard after Him, to see a fire of revival ignite in your heart and desire to see Him made famous in the nations we want you to come.
