About This Outreach

YWAM Lausanne has a heart for seeing people of nations know God intimately and be transformed. We do this through sharing the gospel and being the hands and feet of Christ to people in practical ways.

Join us in a ministry workshop that empowers and equips refugees with an understanding of Biblical worldview and community development initiatives. The workshop takes place in a community development center that operates year round in partnership with YWAM Lausanne and local refugees.

Alongside this main focus, we will also engage in conversation with those of other faiths. Additionally, volunteers will be able to extend joy and encouragement to the churches in North Africa.

Elements of the outreach

Consider partnering with us this summer in North Africa.

Biblical Worldview

Do you desire to see truth found in the Bible transform a community in practical ways? During the workshop, we seek to not only bring an understanding of God’s Word but also help the refugees apply it to their lives and circumstances. If you enjoy teaching the Bible and affecting change through sustainable projects, consider teaching at the workshop this summer.

Community Development

A key part of the workshop is equipping the refugees with vocational skills they can use to better their lives. In the past we have run classes in computer skills, business development, sewing, English, cosmetology and carpentry. Let us know if you have an area of expertise that you could train others in during a vocational class for the workshop.

Alumni Connection

Serve alongside friends who have also done a Discipleship Training School. Every year, we have people return and join us in North Africa who completed their DTS years ago. Enjoy the fellowship this community brings. Anyone who has completed a DTS (in Lausanne or elsewhere) or who has previous missions training is welcome to apply to join the North Africa outreach.

Join Us!

Volunteers can join us in 2017 for the full four weeks (June 23- July 23) for 850 CHF (TBC) or opt for two weeks for 500 CHF (TBC). If you have questions or want more information, please send us an email.
