Equipping Pioneers to Complete the Great Commission!
Nearly 3 billion people remain unreached. Who will tell them the Good News? Who will teach them the Bible? Where are the churches they will attend? Who will equip them to continue spreading the Gospel?
There are over 18,000 YWAM misionaries throughout the world, doing evangelism, training, and mercy ministries. But there are not enough missionaries nor campuses in the most unreached areas of the 10/40 Window.
We believe God is calling YWAM to raise up 200,000 new missionaries who will pioneer new ministries, YWAM bases, and Churches, in order to reap this great harvest, disciple the lost, and send them back out as missionaries
Our mission at the School of Apostolic Pioneering (SOAP) is to equip leaders with the character, knowledge and skills in order for them to pursue the apostolic call God has given them to lead, pioneer, and multiply self-sustainable, reproducible Ministries.

Testimony from the SOAP
Doing the SOAP helped me process my dream, refine what God was saying and put practical plans in place. As a guy who can dream big dreams but not too practical, it was a huge asset. Every week we would had quality speakers with real life experience of pioneering ministries according to the voice of God.
Through the school, I gave birth to a 20 page document that I am using as a guideline 2 years later. It serves as an architectural plan for the spiritual building God wants us to pioneer.
At our brand new base in Potch, South Africa, we did a DTS in the first year. In the second year, we did 3 seminars and are about to do a second DTS. In the 3rd year we are planning 2 YWAM schools and a DTS. This all is in line with the plan we made during the SOAP. We work from that foundation, while continuing to listen to God daily.
I appreciate the sacrifice and hard work of the leaders to bring this school to all continents as leaders are being championed worldwide.
