The Certificate IV in Christian Missions (C4CM) is a live in course run over a two year period, which includes academic course work and practical application. The course will help you to be trained in the core aspects of being a full-time volunteer missionary with YWAM and further develop the skills, knowledge and character that you develop in the DTS.
The course will get you involved in many aspects of local ministry, be involved with a ministry team; and have you participate in outreach programmes locally, within Australia and overseas. You will continue to receive teaching and mentoring in discipleship, coaching in life skills and working alongside experienced leaders.
The training builds on what was learnt during DTS and covers such things as
• learning how to reflect the example of Christ in lifestyle and ministry
• setting ministry goals and making ministry plans
• developing ministry skills
• develop a support base / raising financial support
• develop evangelistic and missional skills
• enhance team work skills
• strengthen Biblical foundations
• How to work effectively in a mission’s organisation.
