February 2014 - Community Development Workshop

YWAM Canada, Global Youth Network and The North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Studies are hosting a certificate workshop on community development March 15-22, 2014. Our host for the workshop will be YWAM Global Gateway in Oliver, BC. 

Community Development Workshop 2014

At this certificate workshop, you, your ministry, your community and YWAM base or Operating location will focus on creating new ideas and understandings that are rooted in the “best of the past.” The workshop’s goal is to expand the potential for creative development and change, to help people envision a collectively desired future and provide the means to achieve that collective vision. This will be achieved in ways that translate people’s images of possibility into reality, their belief about what can be, into practice.

You will discover the art of valuing those factors that have given life to a community in the past and those which are bringing life to it in the present.

In its most practical construction, this certificate workshop is a form of community inquiry that seeks to discover, highlight and illuminate the life-giving forces of the community – past and present. If you are a Base or Operating Location leader, a part of a leadership team, a ministry leader or wanting to start something new in YWAM, then this workshop is something you will want to consider.

Terry LeBlancTerry LeBlanc will be facilitating the workshop.
