INTEGRATE

Since the participants spend the majority of their time in ministry and community living, the MDS is there to act as a support structure for them in their every-day context, giving them tools and follow-up to help them thrive in their role as a staff as well as allowing them to maintain a steady rhythm of growth.

INSPIRE

MDS participants will be inspired by the men and women who come teach each week; people who are living out their faith in concrete and powerful ways. The diversity of perspectives allows participants to keep a larger view of God’s plans for them and their community and can inspire them to new levels of faith.

SHARPEN

Living and working in community is the perfect setting to sharpen and be sharpened by others as you apply biblical principles learned in MDS to your character, relationships, work ethic and skills. One of the strengths of this program is the diversity of people and ministries represented seeking to walk in the ways of Christ together.

Rebecca AlarieMDS Leader
Hello there! I go by the name Becky, which is short for Rebecca, and I have the wonderful opportunity of leading the Ministry Development School (MDS)! It’s a program I so strongly believe in. My interests and passions are plentiful, but one is to see staff prepared and equipped as much as possible for some of the realities they will face in their ministries. I was born and raised in Montréal, QC, I did my DTS and staffed for some time with YWAM in San Pedro, Belize. Then, in 2015, I came back to my homeland, to staff with YWAM Dunham, where I fell in love with the MDS and what it stands for. Going from participant to staff and now staff to leader, I can still say that I learn something new every quarter.
