The School of Ministry Development (SoMD) creates an environment for individual growth whilst being equipped for a future in different ministry settings. The course looks at pastoral, spiritual, logistical and visionary leadership, stretching you as you look to develop your ability to minister to others in YWAM and in other settings.

THE SoMD WAS SUCH A BENEFICIAL TIME; A TIME TO EVALUATE MY VALUES AND STEP OUT IN FAITH IN WHAT GOD HAS SPOKEN TO ME.
