Islamic Studies Seminar
The Islamic Studies Seminar is a six week program for anyone who has interest in serving among Muslim people groups or is interested in learning about Islam. We did this school in January 2015 as students, and in 2016 we lead this school with the purpose to help others gain understanding about Muslims and their culture and to see God’s heart for these people. Our co-workers in the Frontier Missions team on base continue to lead this seminar each year.
This seminar is open to everyone, including those who are not a part of YWAM and those who have not completed a DTS.
During the 6 weeks, we have different speakers coming to speak on the following topics:
* The history of the religion and expansion of Islam
* Fundamental Islamic beliefs
* The culture and practices
* Exploring creative ways to evangelize
* How to contextualize the Gospel
* How to develop a strategy to live and be a witness of the Gospel in an Islamic context/Business in Missions

Discipleship Training Schools
Something that both of us have always been passionate about is discipleship. You might hear this word being tossed around a lot, and perhaps even feel confused about what it means.
For us, discipleship is the process of learning from the Biblical example of Jesus’ life and inviting others to join in. Discipleship is something that never stops. It’s about us choosing to live more like Jesus everyday, and helping others do the same.
We get to be discipled, and we get to disciple others in a few different ways here.
Something we’ve had the opportunity to do four times and now have taken more of a mentorship role to new leaders in, where we get to lead students from several Nations into a deeper understanding of who God is and who they are because of Him. It’s a five to six month period of learning of, growing in and giving out the love of Jesus to bring His Kingdom to earth.
