The Open Door School Of Youth Ministry is an intensive training program for young leaders.

SOYM annually hosts 12-20 Haitian young people for a 4 month residence program, where they are taught Bible, theology, practical ministry skills & leadership development.

They also gain a working knowledge of both english and a marketable trade (computer, carpentry, sewing), preparing them for bi-vocational ministry. At the end of the 4 month program students return to their home church for a 6-month internship where they complete ministry assignments and are mentored by their senior pastor. SOYM was launched in August 2008.

SOYM tuition, room and board is $500 for the entire program. Give a Scholarship to a student today.
