School of Ministry Development ( CHR 241 )

This course will be run over a 2 year period as an internship with Youth With A Mission, Byron Bay. It is designed to train & mentor young leaders in the principles & practice of Bible based leadership. The internship requires the students to be involved in a ministry of YWAM Byron Bay in order to apply the leadership principles they are learning and to take various roles of leadership in those ministries. Throughout the course, trainees will be involved in leading small groups of people in both a discipleship & leadership role. Trainees will lead small outreach teams, projects or events, oversee small groups and be involved in the running of the ministry which they are involved in. During the course, trainees will also have lectures & assignments of their own which will highlight the leadership principles and assist trainees in developing biblically based leadership. Trainees will be assessed on their character development, leadership skills, and missions understanding as well as their development of personal skills and abilities related to leading.
