Here's what to expect



Prayer is a vital part of our Christian walk. It is during these times that we grab hold of God’s heart. Engage in rich times of prayer and grow your faith by diving into powerful times of intercession as you seek to hear and see the world through God’s eyes. Join YWAM Tyler staff in weekly corporate prayer times to lift up, strengthen, and support missionaries from all over the globe as well as intercede for people groups and nations that desperately need Jesus.



God wants us all to see that worship is a way of life. As we worship our Savior and King, we are then catapulted into action. As we focus on the greatness, victory, and beauty of Yahweh, we are captivated by His love. Grow deeper in your intimacy with God by immersing yourself in wonderful times of worship. From that place joy, faithfulness, and ministry spring forth.


Small Groups

Relationship is the essential message of YWAM. First with God, then with others. Small groups are a place where lifelong relationships with your classmates begin. As you walk through this eye-opening and inspiring time join others to discuss what God is showing you. Grow closer with classmates as you come together to exalt the name of Jesus.


One on One

God does many things in and through your time here at YWAM Tyler and we want to be available to help you process everything He is doing in your life. Link up with a mentor who walks with you through your time here on the ranch. Ask the hard questions. Say anything. We are ready.
