Bridge School


Course Description.

Do you feel like God is calling you into full-time ministry? We want to see you stand at your full height as you begin your journey in life-long fruitful engagement with God’s purposes in the world.

The Bridge School is a program that seeks to provide a solid foundation for fruitful, long-term ministry through leadership training, character development, spiritual formation, and practical exposure to different forms of ministry. The school will be a combination of classroom learning, discussion, project work, local outreach, and practical experience in various settings on our campus. Our heart is to see you equipped and inspired to know God and make Him known wherever you feel called to serve, whether it’s at YWAM Montana Lakeside or somewhere else in the world.


Classroom Learning.

You will spend time in the classroom hearing from experienced missionaries on a variety of topics that will help prepare you for long term fruitfulness in missions. You will be challenged to learn and grow in areas such as the character and identity of a missionary, Biblical worldview, vision and pioneering, finances for missions, spiritual formation, and leadership development.

Practical Missions Experience.

Part of your time will also be spent integrating into various departments on our campus in order to gain practical missions experience.  You will be participating in these departments through involvement with missionary members and teams in their work on our campus and through practical service in our community. 

Live/Learn Environment.

In YWAM we cultivate a Live/Learn environment.  This community learning concept embodies the New Testament model of Christians who live and learn together and work towards common objectives.  We believe all of life is an opportunity to learn and grow, and living and learning in community is an important way we are prepared and equipped to know God and make him known, together.
