ABOUT THE TRAINING

Year to the Nations is not one specific program. It is a series of training schools hand picked and put together to ultimately equip you for long-term cross-cultural missions. Each training school focuses on a handful of vital elements that are needed to thrive on the mission field. Below are the three schools that are a part of the Year to the Nations initiative.

DTS
DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL

Get your essential foundation for long-term missions. Learn to walk in daily intimacy with and in pursuit of God. Then, on outreach, get a taste of cross-cultural missions alongside long-term workers. Learn more about living overseas by joining the Ekballo elective. Find out more.

SCHOOL OF MINISTRY DEVELOPMENT

Clarify your long-term mission vision and gain the ministry tools that will help you prepare for and implement it.  Your outreach will develop your leadership skills in missions whether you stay stateside or go overseas. Find out more.

SOMD
Som
SCHOOL OF MISSIONS

Your last step is the SOM. This school teaches about God's strategies for the lost, how to care for yourself on the field, and how to work well in a team. After the 3 month classroom phase, you will enter a 2-year internship under the guidance of a long-term missionary. You will learn the language and culture of your new home, and learn how to minister effectively in partnership with experienced missionaries. Find out more.

ADDITIONAL INFO

All along the way, experienced staff will walk with you to help discern your calling about what and where God is calling you to serve.

You do not have to know where you are going on your internship when you start your DTS!  Many times God unfolds this step by step, and we will evaluate and pray with you each step of the way.

It is not required that you complete all your training schools in one year, but we recommend it if you're ready. Below you will see more information on the timeline for completing the training in one year as well as some information about costs. Don't hesitate to call our office or email info@ywamorlando.com for more information!

**This timeline takes 15 months, but it's our recommended timeline. With this timeline you can complete the field assignment of your SOMD, and officially join staff with YWAM Orlando before going longterm.**
