We've led teams overseas, helped lead Discipleship Training Schools, and led a pioneering effort to start a missional community in Spain. All these experiences were incredibly valuable to get hands on experience.
In our next phase we will be helping a new and exciting initiative called: YWAM Beyond
The goal of YWAM Beyond is to help those going to their home countries be fruitful and missional in their lives and retain the "DNA" of what they learned during their time with YWAM.
As much as 80%-90% of those who go through YWAM go back to their native countries. This is a huge opportunity! Here's why:
They know the culture.
They know the language.
They don't need visas.
They naturally blend into the fabric of society.
These are all incredible advantages to start with when trying to start a church or movement.
We will focus on giving pathways or "riverbanks" to those interested and be there to support them as they plow for the Kingdom of God in their native countries. These pathways help cultivate what we call discipleship community or more simply, church. We don't need to recreate the wheel, so we use existing pathways like The Alpha Course and Discovery Bible Study.
Wouldn't it be amazing to see multiplying groups of disciples of Jesus all over the world. The reality is, it is happening already, but we just want to fan the flame! Pray with us and if you believe in what we are doing...
