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 planmore, 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.

School of Biblical Studies Seminar ( CHR 113 )

This seminar equips people with practical knowledge and skills to study the Bible. giving you the opportunity to apply the truths of the scriptures in your life.

School of Intercessory Prayer ( CHR 265 )

The purpose of the SOIP is to teach, practice and encourage the daily exercise of intercessory prayer and to understand the character, nature, and ways of God in prayer, intercession, worship and spiritual warfare. Understanding the significant place and practice of prayer in the believer’s life, and the role of worship and spiritual warfare in making disciples of the nations are taught through lectures, discussions, and research projects. Practical application includes coordinating and leading prayer and worship.

School of the Living Word ( CHR 216 )

This course was developed as a mentoring process that would establish and strengthen an approach to the scriptures that lets them live (Heb. 4:12). That is, we come to the Bible text to hear from Him, the Living Word. We emphasize personal application rather than pursuing, for example, metaphysics, systematic theology, or philosophical speculation. A leading elder does most of the teaching, drawing on the time-honored tradition of being mentored by an established teacher and leader. An epistemology that specifically believes in and practices daily the importance of being taught by divine relational revelation is adhered to and practiced. The primary methods are written questions about the passage we are considering, daily written answers by each student, meditation, worship, personal prayer, and a Socratic classroom climate where the leader guides by asking questions to stimulate deeper understanding, universal participation by the students, and active response to what God is saying.

World, truth and light ( HMT 113 )

"World, truth and light" is a 3-week christian worldview introductory seminar that aims to provoke students to understand how worldviews shape the surrounding world and how a bible-based christian worldview is the compass to help them navigating post-modernity, applying biblical principles in the different spheres of society they are called to reach.
