Join the Team
Join the Network
Thanks for your interest in YWAM Converge! We are a YWAM ministry network with a global vision for extending ministries of Youth With A Mission into every sphere of influence. We were birthed as a university student mobilization ministry network through which we built the Converge internships platform.
JOINING THE YWAM CONVERGE NETWORK TEAM
YOU might be the right person for this team. Here are the requirements:
His call is all that matters. He calls us to follow him. It is a sacrifice, but there’s joy in the journey and even greater joy ahead.
No matter where you serve, do you know you are called?
2. The second requirement is a big one.
Those who are called have given up their rights to comforts, possessions, and, in many instances, their own opinions in order to love others. Those who are called are committed to reconciliation and restoring relationships, beginning with God, with families and communities, with creation, and with themselves. Our unique ministry strategy is to help a new generation of missionaries who will be witnesses for Christ in their sphere of influence. Our vision is to Make a Difference in Your World.
No matter what you do, are your comforts, possessions, or opinions limiting the joy of your relationships?
- Satisfactorily complete the Discipleship Training School with a recommendation from DTS leader.
- Complete at least one year of college or vocational training.
- Commitment to reach a minimally agreed upon financial support level before joining the team. (Personal fundraising may be concurrent with the DTS and/or the Converge Staff-in-Training Course.)
- Join the network team of a Managing Partner of the YWAM Converge Network.
No matter how much want to serve with YWAM, be sure this is the YWAM team God has called you to join.
Converge Staff-in-Training Course
Qualified candidates for the YWAM Converge staff network will successfully complete the Converge Staff-in-Training Course, which includes the following:
1. Completion of a Unique Converge Internship Project:
We built Converge as a YWAM Initiative. Converge is an exciting new platform designed to make missions mobilization more open and connected. After years of development, that platform is available at https://ywamconverge.org.
Because Converge is a core program of this ministry, every YWAM Converge team candidate will do a unique Converge internship project to be completed before getting invited to join the team. Staff-in-Training may complete their Converge internship anywhere, depending on their individual situation.
Converge internships are for anyone actively searching for an applied missional learning experience. Converge is also for YWAM and Friends of YWAM seeking people with specialized skills and interests. And it’s also a great staff recruiting and training tool. That’s why we are using it. And that’s why we want every YWAM Converge network team member to know all about Converge before they join the team.
All Converge interns, including staff-in-training, receive inspirational YWAM training messages and a fundraising profile page. All Converge interns propose and design a final project according to their skills and interests. And all Converge interns are required to choose a mentor, someone who knows them well and someone from their own home community. The Converge Mentor will coach, pray, and encourage interns to make the most of their experience.
So, if you are interested in joining the YWAM Converge network staff team, and you meet the qualifications listed above, give us a call.
2. Meet regularly with YWAM Converge Network Managing Partner:
This ministry is founded on the scripture from 2 Peter 1, which is also the foundation for YWAM’s University of the Nations. Therefore every staff candidate will commit to working with and regularly meet with YWAM Converge Network Managing Partner.
3. Fundraising and Supplemental “Tent-Making” Personal Income.
Because this is a faith ministry committed to relationship-based support, all YWAM staff candidates are required to raise funds to meet a minimum personal budget before being accepted on the YWAM Converge network staff team. That support may also be supplemented by a part-time job, however, full-time staff must commit at least 30 hours/week to YWAM. And because we are a YWAM Network and not a traditional YWAM training campus, we do not have housing facilities. Therefore every staff candidate must have sufficient funds for food, local transportation, medical insurance, and leased or purchased housing at the location agreed upon by the staff candidate’s Managing Partner by the end of their 90-day Staff-in-Training course. All staff applicants will be provided a budget template upon acceptance to the Staff-in-Training Course.
4. Invitation to join the YWAM Converge Network Team.
All YWAM Converge staff will be evaluated by their Managing Partner and the YWAM Converge Directors at the end of the 90-day Staff-in-Training course. Those who receive a positive evaluation will be invited on staff full-time. Be encouraged! You will grow as a member of the YWAM Converge Team! Every team member will meet with their Managing Partner regularly to review goals and progress, with prayerful consideration about where God is leading you next. After all, once we grow, God typically calls us to “Go!”
