YWAM Los Angeles

Offered in: English

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.
