Blog

Our blog is a place where students and staff alike post frequently about all of the things that are happening here on campus and throughout the world. We post outreach updates, testimonies, devotionals, and encouragements that cover a multitude of themes and subjects. Our desire is that these posts will give you a better idea of what we are doing here at YWAM Montana | Lakeside and that this blog will be an encouragement for you in your walk with Christ.

Avalanches, Saunas, and Jesus

God’s Heart of Hospitality

You and I are lucky.  We are saturated with the Gospel.  We hear it, read it and share it all the time.  That’s what our mission is about: To know God, be filled with His truth, and make Him known, so others will be filled with His truth too. But how often do we see […]

What does it look like to be Jesus’ disciple?

Most of us are familiar with the story of Saul and the road to Damascus, but if you aren’t, you will still be able to take away the heart of what I’m trying to communicate through this simple blog. My heart in writing this is to inspire growth in any Christian’s life who is currently […]

It Is Worth It!

Hello, Taiwan, it’s nice to finally meet. This plane touching down, this is a year and a half of praying and dreaming. This is seven months of raising support and fighting fidgeting nerves. This is three months of dedication, self-sacrifice, self-discovery, and preparation. But, oh, wait. I’ve been here once before, haven’t I? That’s right, I’ve lived here for […]

Note: nothing in this post is meant to be used as an excuse for us to avoid dealing with our pain; it is meant as an encouragement for those times when we just feel bad about stuff; when our emotions take over without rhyme or reason. Problems, when possible, should always be fixed, but sometimes we’re just […]

The Surge From Taipei’s Point of View

YWAM Montana is partnering with YWAM Taipei in an initiative called “The Surge”. We are partnering with YWAM Taipei’s vision to pioneer YWAM locations in 3 of the least-reached areas of Taiwan. We’re also working together towards three God-sized goals.

Questions: Discipline and Discipleship

What is the best question you’ve ever been asked? How did it make you want to respond? Did it stir up something inside you?   In Genesis 3, Adam and Eve sin. They disobey God, turning their backs on him, they run head-long into rebellion. As they hide from God, He calls out to them […]

Can God Use Horses in Missions?

Were you “that” kid? The one who spent all their time and money on a horse? Weekends and evenings cleaning stalls and trying to make money for shows, entry fees, and all the cool new tack you always wanted? Would you consider your horse your “best friend”? As a kid growing up I had no […]

So that Jesus is Glorified

During a Discipleship Training School students travel from all over the world to a particular location to learn that God speaks, that He wants to speak to them, that He has a call on their lives and a purpose for them. They learn about the character and nature of God through scripture and who God […]
