The prerequisite to join staff is the completion of a YWAM Discipleship Training School (DTS).
Our desire is to maximise your unique gifts, skills, passions, and strengths, all while empowering you to serve others.
Our ministry areas include:
Most staff will have the opportunity to engage in a range of roles and projects, including a mix of outreach opportunities and mission support roles. You will also have the option of participating in flexible vocational training that is designed to add to your knowledge and skills while on the job.
How joining staff works
The first step is to enrol in our Introduction to Staff and Leadership course. This is a two-year, hands on program that trains you in the core aspects of being a full-time volunteer with YWAM anywhere in the world. During the Introduction to Staff and Leadership you will work as a full-time volunteer staff member. You will also receive two hours of weekly input time that is designed to enhance both your practical skills and soft skills as you engage in ministry.
