-Learning a new language
- Project planning and teamwork
- Principles for the multiplication of disciples
-Learning the oral transmission of stories
You will learn through different experienced teachers how to thrive on the field, and you will have the opportunity to practice what you learn directly in the region where we are. France is a country with a large number of immigrants, more specifically from North Africa, but also from different nations around the globe.
The lecture phase of 3 months will be followed by an internship in a North African country of at least 3 months. During this period, you will have the opportunity to taste this beautiful culture and put into practice what you have received, while enjoying the necessary support for your development and discovery. You will dive into the life and habits of the Maghreb and you will be introduced to their practices and their language!
Historically, YWAM Provence has been and remains a springboard for equipping and sending workers across borders. We work with experienced people, who know the field well, having worked in Africa and Asia among different people groups such as the Mongols, Pygmies, Fulani, Tuaregs, Malians, etc. This school is oriented towards North Africa but can also equip you for an implication in the Muslim world at large!
