Family Missions

Family discipleship and missions is possible.

Families in missions

YWAM Tyler welcomes families into missions! God has called us to family discipleship: to encourage, strengthen, and send out families according to His original design.

We believe God calls families to be world-changers through the power and truth of His Word as they walk out right relationship with one another and our Mighty King. God longs to raise up and equip families to shine His Kingdom light for the whole world to see; in their home communities, across this nation, and to the ends of the earth!

YWAM Tyler is passionate about family discipleship: training and sending families into the fulfillment of their God-given destiny. We love to see kids and parents learning, serving, and growing together! All our programs welcome single-parent families, foster families, step-families, and grandparents raising their grandchildren, alongside husbands and wives raising their own kids.

Family Sync

Do you want to see your whole family discipled and trained for missions? Our Family Sync School is a unique family discipleship program. It is specifically for school-aged children whose parents are taking a YWAM Tyler school in the summer quarter. (Note: Your children ages 0-5 will be lovingly cared for by our Pre-school and Nursery staff during class time).

We believe God calls WHOLE FAMILIES into missions together, working through all ages and generations to accomplish His purposes. Therefore, our goal at Family Sync is to unify families by training children in the same truths and skills as their parents. While you are learning about God’s character and nature, personal quiet times, evangelism, intercession, and more, your kids are learning the same material at an age-appropriate level. The kids will be in their own classroom with teachers who believe passionately in the potential of children as missionaries. Your kids will have a summer experience like never before! The staff members also engage with parents to encourage and equip them to intentionally and effectively disciple their children. We seek to create a desire in the hearts of children and parents alike to fully engage with God’s call and trust in Him as a family. This program provides a wonderful foundation for families prior to going on their mission trip, known in YWAM as “outreach”. During this outreach, families will put all they have learned in the classroom into practice.
