YWAM Samoa aims to equip and train missionaries with community development tools in order to bless people and enhance the quality of life for under-devoloped communities in Samoa and the Pacific. The Community Development workshop provides training in a biblical approach to community transformation in all spheres of society, beginning with the growth of the individual and his or her relationship with God. The principles and practices are designed to bring change in varied settings, from rural to urban, and from slums to refugee camps in this globalized world. This course equips students with skills to help communities initiate and accomplish strategic activities that will bring life and growth towards God’s purposes in His kingdom on earth. The curriculum helps the participant cultivate a solid working knowledge of transformation, development values, fundamental skills, godly character, and good relationships.
