The Focus of YWAM Bethlehem
- To equip a generation, from the furnace of a dynamic prayer, worship, and missions environment, to have an authentic and lasting impact on the earth in these days.
- City and nationwide evangelism campaigns through the YWAM Campaigns also known as “Impact World Tour (IWT)”. YWAM Bethlehem has a passion for prayer and intercession and facilitates a prayer room with the focus of New Zealand, the nations, and seeing prayer and worship arise around the world. This alliance is one of the exciting tangible expressions of what is emerging between the global prayer and mission movements. The convergence of the global prayer and missions movements as one expression is the heartbeat of all that we do.
- Development of young leaders to discover God’s call on their lives.
- A global focus for our school’s outreaches is primarily in Asia, the Pacific, and the Middle East.
Description of YWAM Bethlehem
YWAM Bethlehem is located in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty; One of the most pristine coastal locations in New Zealand. Our heart is to provide a thriving, authentic, Godly, mission-focused community with a fiery furnace of prayer and worship central to all we do. With a passionate and gifted staff team, we have an established environment for people to come and encounter God on a daily basis and have seen hundreds sent out from our community into dozens of nations and spheres of influence around the world. We run DTS’s (three months ministry training and two months overseas outreach) all year round primarily targeted at young people who want to go deep in the knowledge and experience of God and see the earth from a radically new perspective. These schools are run under the umbrella of “YWAM Bethlehem”. We also run a leadership development course as well as other second-tier training in evangelism, citywide campaigns, worship, and provide an on-ramp for those wanting to be involved in worship and prayer environment in a focused way.
