Applied Linguistics for Bible Translation Module I ( APL 531 )

This course is the first module of Mali BT. Mali BT has six modules of roughly 14 weeks each, spread throughout two years. The modules combine periods of intensive study, with periods of semi-intensive work, when students work on their assignments 2-3 hours per day. Each module has its own internal structure, and students are expected to complete between 6 and 9 credits per module. In the last module students are expected to work in teams to complete the translation of the book of Ruth into a language, or to write a thesis on Oral Bible Translation. The word MALI stands for Master in Applied Linguistics, but MALI is also a Polynesian word that refers to the art of skillfully and carefully weaving together different materials in order to create a well-finished and beautiful piece of art craft. The term is also used to refer to the art of carefully weaving words to comfort, to bring wisdom, or to soothe one's pain. It talks about the ability to craft nicely a discourse or a story. Wise people know how to MALI or weave the words carefully. The Master in Applied Linguistics for Bible Translation prepares students to perform specialist roles in Bible translation service among minority language groups. Our graduates will have the tools to work as facilitators in mother-tongue Bible translation projects as well as consultation practitioners for both written and oral Bible translation. "Today, there are between 165 and 180 million people with no portion of the Word of God available in their mother tongue… The Lord is pressing us into action. He has given us talented people and anointed partnerships. He has led men and women to create amazing technological tools. But we need to give Him our own loaves and fishes before He can multiply them." Loren Cunningham The UofN Master in Applied Linguistics for Bible Translation program has been specifically designed to equip YWAMers to make their contribution to Bible translation service as facilitators, translators, and mentors and potentially serve in the consultancy process. We are inspired by some YWAMers who are already involved in Bible translation for decades, and we want to see their example multiplied by hundreds in our mission. Our Master program is our response to the "End Bible Poverty Now" call, and more specifically to the “Pacific Wa’a Covenant” signed by leaders of several missionary organizations in the Pacific region. In this context, YWAM has a role in multiplying the next generation of Bible translation practitioners, who will contribute to eradicating Bible poverty in the world. The embryo concept of the present program was conceived in 2015 after a three-day meeting in Kona between Bryan Harmelink, Marcia Suzuki, and Edson Suzuki. Dr. Harmelink, the Global Consultant for Bible Translation & Collaboration of Wycliffe Bible Alliance, realized that YWAM was ready and was a fertile ground to innovate the approach to Bible translation training in general. After that meeting, the embryo concept was further developed and refined through a creative process of discussion,  reflection, and prayer involving the Suzukis, David Hamilton, and Youngshin Kim.

School of Ministry Development ( CHR 241 )

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.
