YWAM Montana Lakeside
Together we commit to the communication of the gospel by training, sending, supporting and being missionaries.
Titus Project was born out of a vision to bring understanding of God’s word to the Church around the world that is in great need, great hunger, and has limited opportunity to receive proper Bible training otherwise. To accomplish this, we develop School of Biblical Studies graduates to teach the skills they have acquired and then mobilize the SBS graduates on a two-month outreach to equip the pastors and church leaders in Biblical Literacy.
The first three weeks are spent training here in Montana. During the training phase, participants learn how to prepare, present and illustrate Bible teachings. Each participant will teach four times during lecture phase and be evaluated on their strengths and weaknesses. All practice teachings are first modeled by the staff. Book discussions, prayer, worship, intercession and outreach prep are also a part of the lecture phase.
The next eight weeks are spent on outreach in small teams focused on reaching the church in remote locations. The goal of outreach is to equip local pastors with the tools of Inductive Bible Study, Bible overview, Historical and Geographical Bible Overview, and Effective Communication skills.
We aim for each participant to train pastors between 6-12 hours each week during their overseas experience. On outreach, team-mates will also evaluate each other for continued growth. Upon completion of the outreach phase, participants return to Montana for a week of celebration and debriefing.
The global church is suffering from Biblical malnutrition. Despite Christianity’s explosive growth the church in the developing world lacks trained, Biblically educated leaders. To date, there is one formally trained church leader for every 450,000 people outside of the U.S. Some even say that 85% of Pastors worldwide have had no formal training whatsoever. That means that most of the 77,000 unbelievers coming to Christ daily are left with a shortage of qualified leaders to disciple them. Our purpose is to meet this need by training and sending Bible teachers to disciple a new generation of believers who are deeper grounded in Biblical truth.
Growing up with ministry opportunity in abundance, Sarah was constantly working in her community. She started her journey with YWAM in 2016, and after doing a DBS, and an SBS, she saw the need for the Word to be properly understood. Her heart is to equip the church in the ability to understand Jesus through His word. With the Lord fanning the flame in her heart, this little spit fire is ready to see how the Lord will change the world through His word.
I love missions and the Bible and my direction as a missionary is to impact people with the word of God by walking with them through teaching, training, and discipleship so that they reflect Jesus in what they think and in what they do. In my down time I love to read and to be outside because sometimes it's not enough to just explore the world inside a book. God made a million and one things for us to discover we just have to go climb the mountain and find 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!
Our goal is to equip the church world wide with tools for studying the Bible for themselves. We target places with limited access to Bible teaching. Our goal is that our program participants will become life-long Bible teachers and continue to equip the church wherever they go, whether back home, or into long-term missions.
