SCHOOLS RUN AT THIS LOCATION

Advanced Leadership School ( CHR 343 )

Two primary Advanced Leadership Schools have similar goals of giving practical training for leaders with some experience in a YWAM leadership context. Leadership Training School. The Leadership Training School (LTS) is designed to equip YWAM leaders in the areas of spiritual leadership, organization and management, and communication. It is international both in its student composition and its school staff and speakers. The LTS incorporates a variety of learning contexts. Hands-on workshops enable students to acquire practical skills, and learning groups provide a setting in which to interact, integrate and apply classroom content. Corporate discussions and panels encourage a creative atmosphere for developing innovative concepts and programs. As a final report, each student develops a plan to implement his or her vision for a new mission project. Note: The Advanced Leadership Seminars (CHR 305) are segments of the LTS; therefore, students who take the LTS will not be awarded credit for these seminars, except as part of their LTS credits. Prerequisite: missions leadership experience and consent of school leader. School of Pioneer Leadership Development - Level 2 This course is a continuation of CHR 241 and 242, and emphasizes the project that the leader will develop as an application of Phase 1, with mentoring from experienced YWAM leaders. The course is ideal for young leaders who have demonstrated they have acquired the values of YWAM and who now need time and opportunity to pray and plan more, with guidance and support from leaders who can coach them through this process. Further mentoring will be available if needed as the leader commences the project, providing the much needed support in the pioneering stage of a new ministry.

Aquaculture Seminar ( SCI 171 )

A broad introduction to the science and skills of fish farming and raising fish as a prime food source in developing nations. Topics and activities include: theory of fish farming, field trips, and practical experience raising young fish under carefully controlled conditions.

Basic Construction Technology Seminar ( SCI 153 )

A basic overview of construction skills and tools needed to complete building projects. A key goal of the seminar is to equip students for construction mercy ministry. Some of the topics included are: framing, basic electrical systems, roofing systems as well as a biblical perspective on construction and understanding parallels between Christ as our foundation and the significance of strong foundations in building.

Biogas Technology & Construction ( SCI 156 )

The Biogas Technology & Construction Workshop is a 6-week course followed by 4 weeks of field assignment locally or internationally (only candidates that are picked may join the Field Assignment). After two weeks of training, participants will have obtained knowledge on Biogas Technology, the benefits and uses of this technology, and practical construction of the system. This is an appropriate technology for communities, especially in 3rd world countries.

Canoe Construction Seminar ( SCI 159 )

Canoe construction is taught to enable villages to have access to sea fishing in order to provide food (protein) and income for families and transport upon the waters. This course was started because the art of canoe carving had faded away with the passing generations leaving the current ones with no idea on how to make their own. this course enables anyone (women, men, young people) to build canoes from plywood that are readily available in local villages.

Community Water Technology Seminar ( SCI 152 )

Students will learn how to examine the characteristics of water supplies available to communities, and how to provide, pump, store and purify water economically. Some topics are: water management, water catchment, water holding and sanitation, water purification and non-electrical pumping systems. The seminar is mostly hands-on, and includes the construction of water tanks, sand filters, washbasins and toilets, hand pumps, and hydraulic pump systems.

Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

The Discipleship Training School (DTS/CDTS) is an intensive Christian training course beginning with a 12 week lecture/teaching phase followed by a 8-12 week practical field assignment. The DTS/CDTS is designed to encourage students in personal character development, cultivating a living relationship with God and identifying their unique individual gifts and callings in God. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout the course, preparing the students to reach current and future generations and answer the call to "Go into all the world and disciple al nations" (Mat 28:19). - The UofN International DTS Centre manual.

Introduction to Community Technology ( SCI 151 )

This seminar provides an overview of how technologies can be used to meet felt needs of a hungry and thirsty world and by so doing demonstrate God's love for them in a practical way. The seminar will specifically provide a description of food, water, sanitation, shelter, and energy needs in various parts of the world, and it will provide a review of strategies currently available to meet some of these needs.

Introductory Bible Course ( CHR 227 )

The Discipleship Bible School (DBS) is a Bible overview and reading course with an important discipleship component in it as well and could be viewed as a sequel to the DTS. The school focuses on the Bible revisiting DTS topics as we come them accross in the Bible and then go deeper. The student will have read the entire Bible at the end of the course and have a firm understanding on its content.

School of Missions ( CHR 235 )

Here in YWAM Samoa we're more focused on a holistic approach in reaching the Frontiers. Students will not only gain historical, current, and visionary knowledge (planning, learning, contextualizing, 5 year projects, strategies, language learning, etc.) but also gain practical skills in which they could have in their tool belts to take with them to wherever God's leading them to depending on the trainings planned for the school (example: Biogas technology and construction).
