Are you called to missions ?

The Ministry Development Internship is a live-in training experience run over a 2-year period, which includes academic course work and practical application. The internship will train you in the core aspects of being a full-time volunteer missionary with YWAM and further develop the skills, knowledge and character that you develop in the DTS.

During the internship you will be involved with a ministry team with which you will participate in outreach programs locally, within Australia and overseas. You will continue to receive teaching, mentoring in discipleship and coaching in life skills whilst working alongside experienced leaders.

Develop your ministry skills

Earn a Certificate IV in Christian Missions

The Ministry Development Internship enrolls you in a course called Certificate IV in Christian Missions (C4CM). This course is a 2-year training program which builds on what is learnt in the DTS and provides further training in specific ministry skills. The course is delivered in modules which change every quarter (3 months). Lectures are usually held one day per week, which allows interns to invest in hands-on experience as YWAM staff for the remaining 4 days of the week. You will also be required to participate in local and overseas outreach for the course. Course work includes the following lecture topics and principles:

  • learning how to reflect the example of Christ in lifestyle and ministry
  • setting ministry goals and making ministry plans
  • developing ministry skills
  • develop a support base / raising financial support
  • develop evangelistic and missional skills
  • enhance team work skills
  • strengthen Biblical foundations
  • how to work effectively in a mission’s organisation.
