Childbirth Educator Seminar ( CNH 175 )

The childbirth educator seminar will equip participants to empower communities with understanding of the time surrounding pregnancy and birth, so that lives can be saved. Students will serve women in the developing world who have little to no understanding of their bodies in terms of what is happening during pregnancy, the risk factors during pregnancy, and how good nutrition is vital for them and their families throughout and beyond the pregnancy.

Community Development School (WLG) ( DEV/HMT 365 )

The Community Development School provides training in a biblical approach to community transformation for all spheres of society. Beginning with the holistic development of the individual and his or her relationship with God, the principles and practices of this course are designed to enable change in varied settings, from rural to urban, with a mind towards the current possibilities of the globalized world. The course is designed to equip students with skills that will empower communities of varying size to initiate and accomplish strategic activities, with the ultimate goal of bringing life and growth according to God's purposes as He establishes His kingdom on earth.

Doula Seminar ( CNH 173 )

This seminar can be adapted for any location where cross-cultural workers would train to serve pregnant women and their families. Childbirth has emotional and social elements; the doula, or birth partner, provides support for the mother as well as the whole family, which can assist the birth attendant/physician in their medical role. This course can equip workers who are already serving in other capacities to reach out to women and their families, providing understanding, comfort, information and support throughout the pregnancy, labor and delivery, and after the birth.

School of Biblical Studies I ( CHR 213 )

This is the first in a series of three courses that make up the School of Biblical Studies (SBS). This course sequence surveys the whole Bible using the inductive approach (observation, interpretation and application). This course may serve as a core course in all bachelor's degree programmes. This course meets the U of N Core Curriculum requirement for Bible.

School of Biblical Studies II ( CHR 315 )

This course is a continuation of the School of Biblical Studies, using the inductive approach to study I and II Peter, Jude, I, II and III John, the Gospel of John, Revelation, and Genesis through 1 and II Chronicles.

School of Biblical Studies III ( CHR 316 )

As the final course in the SBS series, this continuation of training in using the inductive approach to studying the Bible, covers the study of wisdom literature and the study of the prophets.

School of Ministry Development ( CHR 241 )

Leadership schools come in different forms, designed to meet the needs of the students, equipping them for servant leadership while giving opportunity for personal growth and development. Two emphases offered in this category of school are: School of Ministry Development (SOMD) - During this school students discover and develop their gifts and talents in leadership roles. The course is especially designed for new staff at YWAM centres and is adapted to the context of the language and culture of the country in which it is taught. Some of the topics are: understanding the core values of YWAM, perspectives on missions, generational thinking, transforming cultures, personal fund-raising, worship and evangelism, personal ministry development, public speaking, spiritual authority, and conflict resolution. School of Pioneer Leadership Development (SPLD) - This school has the goal of equipping young leaders to pioneer new YWAM bases, schools or ministries. Students will receive tools to help them in becoming effective learners and leaders -- learning the culture, and in some cases the language, of the people where they will pioneer. Topics include: team building, principles of pioneering, servanthood, foundational leadership practices, mentoring, coaching, and the role of intercession in pioneering. Students may have opportunity to work alongside ministries that are in a pioneering phase of development. A recommendation from a YWAM leader is required for entry into this course.

School of Missions ( CHR 235 )

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.
