YWAM Missions Training Courses

YWAM’s training programs aim to equip Christians to serve others in areas of their gifts and calling. Each of our schools combine theory with practical application and take place in a live/learn environment here on our campus in Salem, Oregon. Our courses range from 3-6 months and often include an international field assignment!
