YWAM Orlando School of Missions (SOM)
YWAM Orlando will be running their school of missions starting on September 26th, and then again in April and September of 2014. The School of Missions is designed to help students make the move into longer term missions work through the school’s lecture phase and field experience.
The school of Missions focuses on four skills that are common to all longer-term cross-cultural missionaries:
- The ability to learn another language
- To successfully cross a culture
- To work well on a field team
- To thrive in challenging environments
During the three month lecture phase of the school students will spend time preparing for a 12 – 24 month internship that would begin after the lectures are complete. There are three options for the internship phase, including:
- Entering a field internship with an existing YWAM Orlando’s Vision 2020 team
- Pioneering a new Vision 2020 field location
- Partnering with other existing mission teams
You can find out more about the school and what’s involved on their web-site, ywamorlando.com.

- How to develop a fundraising packet
- How to set up fundraising trips
- How to grow a support team
