FAQ: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A MISSIONARY WITH YWAM NORWAY?
Our missionaries are sent out from one of our twelve centres in Norway, and sign a partner agreement with the centre they are sent out from. It is the local YWAM centre that guides, follows up, facilitates, helps with formalities and debriefs the missionaries. Our process of sending out missionaries is relationship based, and it is important to us that staff at the YWAM centre and the missionaries connect before going out in the field.
DO I NEED AN EDUCATION TO BE SENT OUT THROUGH YWAM?
The minimum requirement to be a missionary with YWAM is a Discipleship Training School (DTS) with UofN. Many of Youth With A Mission’s missionaries use their education in their work, for example medicine, teaching, engineering, theology and social welfare work. YWAM also sends out people with no formal competence.
DO I RECEIVE A SALARY?
Youth With A Mission is a non-profit organisation, and the organisation’s leaders and workers are called to live in dependency on God for financial provision. No one who works in YWAM receives a salary from the organisation, but they have to build a network of supporters to join in their ministry.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COMMIT?
In Youth With A Mission you can go out on short-term mission trips, go out in missions for one year or for many years. Our missionaries have been out for everything from one to 30 years, in fact as long as God leads them. In order to sign a partner agreement as a missionary sent out from one of our centres in YWAM, with the support that that requires, you must have the intention of being out in the field for at least two years.
