We believe that the Bible transforms nations and lives. Every one of us at YWAM Sendai are here in Japan because of believing that what God says in the Bible is true today. The Holy Spirit teaches us what the text says and how to apply it to our lives. It is this unity of Word and Spirit that moves us to share the love and truth of Jesus Christ with those that have never heard the Gospel.
Through one on one discipleship, seminars, teaching at churches and running courses we believe that people will be healed, set free from various things and given confidence in who God has made them to be. Lives changed will change lives. This is what discipleship is all about.
YWAM runs many training programs that aim to better equip Christians to grow in their relationship with God and to serve others in everything from agriculture and health care, to business development and biblical counselling. YWAM’s University of the Nations (U of N) offers specialised study in areas such as science and technology, linguistics, the humanities, and Christian ministry.
The introductory course, the Discipleship Training School (DTS), is offered in many nations and languages. It’s an intensive five months of growing more like Jesus and serving Him in the world. This course is also the prerequisite in staffing at any YWAM location in the world, including Sendai. We highly recommend this course to all who desire to know God more and to better understand their identity in Him.
