Equipping Disciples & Leaders
SOMD Lecture Phase is set up similar to DTS, with three months of living in a live/learn community. SOMD is designed to individualize the skills and purpose you’ve discovered in DTS and teach you how to apply them to your call of God. SOMD will also help equip you with tools to pioneer your own ministry to further God’s kingdom in the world.
Reaching People, Communities, and Nations
You Pray. You Hear. You Plan. You Go. YWAM staff will guide and assist you as you put together your outreach, whether to an existing ministry we’ve worked with or something completely new.
*Outreach is not required for completion of SOMD, but highly encouraged!
Requirements: In order to apply for and attend a School of Ministry Development, successful completion of a Discipleship Training School is required.
