leadership training school

Shepherd Leadership:  John 10:  “We are called to be good shepherds like Jesus, laying down our life for the sheep.”

Servant Leadership: YWAM is called to servant leadership as a lifestyle, rather than a leadership hierarchy. A servant leader is one who honors the gifts and callings of those under his/her care and guards their rights and privileges. Just as Jesus served His disciples, we stress the importance of those with leadership responsibilities serving those whom they lead.

When you commit yourself to a group of people you might not leave fast. If you have a hired heart then you are easily to leave. But if you have a shepherding heart you don’t want to leave.


A six-week intensive time of training for young leaders and experienced leaders alike. During the LTS delegates will be involved in worship, intercession, individual prayer, life groups, challenge nights, evangelism and quality teaching. All these mentioned activities equip the leader to be a well-grounded and all a rounded individual who can fit in the any context. Some of the lecture topics are: servant leadership, lifelong leadership, shepherd leadership, project development, and leadership transitions.
Arise and shine devotion
“Be very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”
“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.”
Disciple Training

Only 30% of all leaders finish well – Battles both within and without, that can cause them to quit, plateau, or be disqualified. Run with purpose – Vision – Priorities – Passion

testimonies from students

Attending the LTS in its pioneering season was simply a God sent gift that came at a time when I was beset with lots of insecurities as to whether I was good enough and ready for my next chapter of my life as a DTS staff. I admit the sessions I attended in the LTS went a long way in easing the weight of those insecurities and my confidence levels sky rocketed in each session of the LTS that I was blessed to attend.

The intense nature of the program was a blessing in disguise that proved to be my greatest take away from the LTS because it helped me learn how to handle pressure, a virtue that was highly needed as a preparation for my time of service in the DTS.

I owe it to the LTS for having kick started my journey as a new DTS staff of YWAM, Rwanda and to all individuals who made it possible for me to attend am eternally grateful for your support. Blessings”
