School Of Ministry Development (SOMD)

This school is for those who are wanting to create a lifestyle of ministry. We consider it the second half of DTS: you’ll pick up right where you left off, continuing to let Jesus shape your heart while learning to minister like he did.


Learn Practical Skills

Our goal is that you’ll leave SOMD with a toolbox full of tools to make you effective in ministry, no matter where God calls you.

  • Understand Jesus’ strategy to reach the world through discipleship
  • Develop your communication skills.
  • Learn how to build a financial support team.
  • Dream with God about your life’s calling and start fleshing out a strategy to reach your goals.
  • Learn to minister to people’s deepest needs.
  • Discover how God has uniquely shaped you in your giftings, personality, and passions.
  • Receive solid teaching that will help you stay strong in ministry for the long haul.

Leadership Skills

Get ready to learn from some of the best! In class, you'll have the opportunity to gain valuable insights from seasoned leaders who are eager to share their knowledge with you. Then put those principles into practice as you take on leadership roles from day one of SOMD. Leadership opportunities include leading local ministry and discipleship groups and facilitating team projects or prayer times.  In many ways you will have similar responsibilities as our YWAM staff, allowing you to stretch your potential as you take on greater responsibility.
