What is C4CM?
It is a two year course that helps you to be trained in the core aspects of being a full-time volunteer in YWAM. C4CM is the general foundational training for all YWAM staff. You must have completed a DTS before you can enroll in this school. You will be equipped with ministry skills and knowledge to be able to work effectively in a team; develop your gifts and skills, participate in outreach options in variety locations; and be part of the dynamic ministry here at YWAM Byron Bay.
What is a DBS?
During the DBS you will have an opportunity to dig deep into the bible, reading through all 66 books, gaining an overall perspective of God’s story. You will learn techniques for effective Bible study, and a series of guest speakers will help unlock the Bible’s fascinating content.
Although each book is studied to discover its original intent, you will also be taught on topics. For example – you will look at Worldview and Origins as you study through Genesis, Exodus, and Job. Or you might look at Leadership and Worship as you study the life of David in 1 & 2 Samuel, Chronicles, and the Psalms, as well as studying Cross-cultural Missions and the Cost of the Call during the study of Acts and Paul’s missionary journeys.
Each book is filled with insights to be discovered!
