Each year YWAM Gold Coast welcomes people from all over the world who participate in our Discipleship Training Schools, University of the Nations Secondary Schools and Local Outreaches.
Our DTS’ is a 6 month course designed to enable you to go deeper in your relationship with God and begin to explore how God wants to use you. Our School of Worship see’s the Worshiper mature in their walk with Jesus as well as find their unique calling and ultimately be released into their destiny bringing glory to Him every step of the way. The C4CM is a hands-on leadership development program for those who either feel they have leadership potential or those who want to be empowered to disciple others.
Our local ministries like Coffee Van gives us the opportunity to care for the poor and needy on the streets.It’s our heart to bless our community in a very practical way by handing out free coffee, tea, Milo, and food items. This is our way of showing the community that we care and value them on a personal level. Our Outback Mobile Team recognizes that some of the greatest needs in Australian communities are found in places that are hardest to get to geographically. This is why we are compelled to respond in sending teams to remote regions of NSW, and QLD.Through ongoing involvement in these communities, we are building a level of trust and earning the privilege of seeing these amazing young peoples’ lives impacted and transformed.
