School of Strategic Missions

Reach the Unreached.

 

Start your dream adventure of being a missionary

 

The School of Strategic Missions is designed to enable you help fulfill Christ’s Great Commission: to make disciples of all nations. Through SOSM, we endeavor to prepare you to successfully target and engage previously untargeted and/or unreached people groups, to recognize strategic “seasons of opportunity” for the evangelization of a people or country, and to approach urban ministry with a frontiers emphasis.

The school includes a three-month teaching phase at YWAM Tyler followed by a three-month outreach. We encourage individuals or mission teams to travel to their target location for this outreach phase.

Your Life Matters

Discover the purpose of why you are here and how your life can make a ripple impact in other nations.

Equipping the Called

We believe discipleship is the key to transforming nations. When you say "Yes" to God's calling on your life it's the begin of a wonderful journey activating your faith.
