From the day we opened our doors in 1985, YWAM Montana joined the international YWAM family in its foundational calling to evangelism, training and mercy ministries. Though deeply committed to all three, training represents a significant part of what we do in Lakeside; not because it is an end in itself but because it is the means by which God prepares us as his people to do his Kingdom work. We recognize that training is one of the primary vehicles through which those of us who call ourselves disciples not only become more intimately acquainted with the One we have come to love, but it is in this place that we begin to discover how our story fits into the much grander story of God’s redemptive story for all of creation. It is through the process of training/discipleship that we come face to face with the wonder of being called by God to play an integral role in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel.” Just as Paul instructed Timothy to “teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others,” so we in Lakeside have embraced our calling as a ministry to do the same, doing our part to equip the next generation of “Timothys” so that when their time comes, they will be ready to do the same for their generation.
