Do you have a dream to see something new started that can help expand God’s Kingdom in Asia? What would it take to go from dreaming it to doing it? The Leadership and Pioneering Seminar (LAPS) is a 6-week intensive seminar for those who have a God-given vision and want to be equipped in how to make that vision a reality. Whether it is starting or multiplying existing ministries, YWAM locations, training schools, church planting movements, businesses, etc., you will be encouraged and equipped with practical leadership training to help you take the first step toward your vision.
You will receive input and be mentored by experienced leaders who have pioneered, established, and seen growth and fruit here in Asia. They will be able to address specific issues regarding pioneering in the context of Asia or as an Asian being sent out. Ongoing coaching or mentoring is also available after the course for those desiring continued support for their projects.
Priority is given to students who have already completed a YWAM DTS. Other students will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Potential students must already have a specific vision / project in mind that you would like to develop and eventually pioneer. You also need to have a letter of recommendation from a YWAM leader who is also aware of your vision (or pastor / spiritual elder if not in YWAM).
We can help customize an internship that will assist you in the development of your project. Through our extensive network of ministries and elders throughout Asia, you can gain valuable experience with an established ministry in the field that you wish to pioneer. As you deal with real-life situations you will gain greater context for the development of your own vision and recognize areas of your project plan that may need adjustment. You will also be coached in your own leadership skills as you continue to identify both areas of strength and areas for continual development.
