“Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known…[YWAM is] currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000″ (www.ywam.org).
“SBS is unique in that the focus is 100% the Scriptures. It is a 9-month intensive study of the Bible, during which the student goes through all 66 books of the Bible approximately 5 times using the inductive method. The desired outcome of the program is the transformation of lives by the study of Scripture, through the power of the Spirit of God. The goal is to help students come to really know God so that they can make Him known to others. As students gain an increased understanding of God’s character and His Word, how they share the Gospel will be impacted” (www.ywamturnervalley.org).
