Family Sync School

Discipleship and Missions for the whole family.


Your Family's Missions Journey Starts Here



Family Sync School is designed to unify and strengthen families who are taking missions training schools at YWAM Tyler. The program is focused on school-aged kids whose parents are attending our summer training schools (especially those enrolled in the Family Discipleship Training School), providing similar teaching and training to their parents.

We seek to create a desire in the hearts of children and parents alike to fully understand and engage with God's heart for the nations and His desire to seek and save the lost. Our prayer is that all family members would grow in understanding of who they are in Christ and how God desires to work through their family to impact the world around them.

Worship is a vital part of our relationship with God. We will have daily quiet times, Bible reading, and other opportunities for worship throughout the week.

Students will be brought into God’s presence in the morning, as He leads; through singing, praise, Bible meditation, etc.



Family Sync is not an academic school. The kids will have a weekly lecture topic but each class is designed to be interactive, engaging, and Spirit-led. Our intent is to create a safe place where kids can experience a vibrant and active relationship with God and have fun in the process. Short teachings are reinforced with games, activities, and personal application. Our goal is to reflect what the children’s parents are learning and foster an atmosphere of spiritual unity in the family.

Family life is all about teamwork. We truly believe in the value of whole families learning and serving together as a T-E-A-M (Together Everyone Achieves More).  Therefore, we have created opportunities throughout the week for parents enrolled in Family DTS to spend time alongside their kids in Family Sync doing just that! Activities may include family teaching, discussions, team-building activities, prayer, and community outreach. The purpose is for all family members to grow in understanding of how God has uniquely wired their family and to catch His vision to use them as a powerful team for the expansion of His Kingdom on the earth.

Family Sync also offers children the opportunity to work in a team with other children of different ages. They will learn to pray together, work together, play together, and serve together; all vital roles in the family of God.






Cost covers all class expenses for your child, including materials, daily snacks, and travel expenses for outreach days. Cost is in addition to child’s room and board.
