YWAM Montana Lakeside
Together we commit to the communication of the gospel by training, sending, supporting and being missionaries.
This six week intensive Biblical Seminar at YWAM Montana will educate and train missionaries in the Biblical and theological frameworks helping one address the current cultural issues and brokenness surrounding the topic of human sexuality. By equipping an individual with the Scriptural and theological boundaries of what is and isn’t God-honoring sexuality, one will graduate with the ability to move forward in navigating their own sexuality as well as minister to sexually broken people inside and outside the Body of Christ.
Throughout the course of the seminar we will focus on various yet key aspects of the Character and nature of God, His Word and how they are meant to inform and guide the Christian life regarding our human sexuality. We will also engage in the current cultural issues surrounding human sexuality in order to grow in our understanding of sexual brokenness so that one can move forward navigating their own personal life as well as engage in healthy pastoral care of other people. Alongside lectures each week, participants of the program will have required reading and writing assignments. These assignments are meant to cover material which cannot be covered in class (reading) as well as provide a time for processing the material (writing).
It is the goal of this program for an individual to grow in their understanding of the Christian perspective on human sexuality in order to help them navigate and engage this topic. This will involve learning how to stand firm on the Truth of God’s Word, His desires for human sexuality while simultaneously walking in grace, kindness and humility.
I was born and raised in the great Pacific Northwest, when I was 26 I was encouraged to join YWAM. I did my DTS in 2008, in Pichilemu, Chile. During my DTS I really desired to grow in my understanding of the Bible, I was told about the School of Biblical Studies at YWAM Montana. I came to Montana the fall of 2009 for SBS, after my SBS I stayed in Montana to staff SBS. I staffed SBS for a total of 7 years, four of those years I helped lead and run the school. August of 2017, I left YWAM Montana for two years to pursue a Masters in the New Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. In May 2019, I graduated with honors in my degree program and have returned to YWAM Montana to work with the Biblical Seminars. I have a desire to see well trained and equipped Bible teachers in the world. I believe part of being well trained and equipped involves having a solid understanding of both Biblical and theological content. I believe everyone can benefit from having a firm biblical and theological foundation, no matter where God is calling them.
At YWAM Montana-Lakeside, we are all about doing whatever it takes to know God and to make Him known, together! We’d love to help you make that next step in your global missions education. Apply now!
