The Great Commission is for every Christian - each person has
a part to play in bringing God's restoration to the nations.
YWAM Training is called to “Know God and Make Him Known.” Through our training, we offer practical tools to equip you for what God is calling you to. Our entry course – a Discipleship Training School is built upon knowing God – personal relationship with God and others and “making Him Known” – going locally and overseas.
From there, you can go on to choose the specific training or missions experience you need to ready yourself for what’s next. Don’t know what that is yet? Doing a DTS can be a great step in your discovery process!
Each calling is different – with this in mind, our modular approach to training means you can choose just the courses and field-experience you need to do what God is preparing you to do.
All our training is field-driven, going beyond just theory to hands-on experience and practical application. “Do first, then teach” is one of our Foundational Values, so on every course you’ll learn from experienced missionaries and leaders – practitioners in their field. Our field-first approach gives first-hand understanding of what the current needs are in the nations, which helps inform us of additional course work to add for the specific locations we go to.
Our holistic approach to training is grounded in Matt 22:37 (NLT) where Jesus said “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” We recognise that information-based training is not enough, but with a growing Christ-like character, the learner develops wisdom and influence to serve the individual or community in need.
Due to Australia's ongoing COVID-19 international border restrictions, we have temporarily suspended some of our onsite training. We are offering a range of training online during this time. For more information, please see our Online Training Courses. We look forward to offering more courses onsite again as relevant restrictions are lifted.
Our further accredited training happens in the context of YWAM Perth’s vibrant missions community, with a field assignment in Australia or overseas. Lecture phase will include, not only classroom learning, but hands-on serving, small-group times, personal discipleship, worship, prayer, evangelism and more. Click here to read our latest news.

The various bodies that provide the framework for education in Australia establish standards which seek to ensure that students are effectively equipped and appropriately cared for.

YWAM Training Perth is a registered training organisation within Australia and many of the courses offered by us are recognised by Australian education authorities under the Australian Qualifications Framework.
