School of Ministry Development ( CHR 241 )

The Basic Leadership School is an 86 week internship with Youth with a Mission. The course is designed to train and mentor young leaders in the principles and practice of Bible based leadership. The internship requires BLS trainees to be involved in a ministry of YWAM Brisbane in order to apply the leadership principles they are learning and to take various roles of leadership in those ministries. During the internship, trainees will be involved in leading small groups of people in both a discipleship and leadership role. Trainees are part of different ministries so the context of the small groups are specified to each ministry department. Trainees will also be in charge of completing different kind of projects or events within their ministry. Trainees who are staffing a dts, will lead small outreach teams, oversee small groups and be involved in the running of the ministry which they are involved. During the BLS trainees will also have lectures and assignments of their own which will highlight leadership principles and assist trainees in developing biblical based leadership. Trainees will be assessed on their character development, leadership skills, missions understanding, the ability to fundraise and communicate with supporters back home and on their development of personal skills and abilities related to leading.
