Along with providing equipping and encouragement for those in the trenches of ministry through regularly scheduled training events, the Training Center provides intensive training, coaching and mentoring through a residential internship program designed for those pursuing a calling in youth ministry or church planting.
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.
