One year to impact the rest of your life

We've seen the fruit of students making wise decisions and doing great things, in college and afterwards, because they took a season to seek after God's heart while serving His people.

Whether you are a student looking to grow, a future church planter, or a future YMCA Mission Director the International Ministry Academy gives you a chance to discover what passions, gifts, and talents God has given you to pursue for the Kingdom of God and will equip you to live on mission wherever God calls you to go!

What's Included

- a Biblical FOundation

Over the course of the 9 months we will walk thru the entire Bible and explore threads that connect each book, the historical context, and how the Bible shapes our lives today. 

- Discipleship Training

A movement has started. God is at work in us, and He is shaping us to be more like Jesus! We will dive in and look at what it truly means to be a disciple of Jesus. 

- Hands on Ministry Experience

You will get the opportunity to not only learn about ministry but to get to participate in it! Students get to experience the gospel lived out as they spend time serving and learning in the YMCA, and also in the context of the local church. 

- Conferences & excursions

New York, Washington, DC., California, and Los Vegas are a few of the National Excursions and conference locations that are planned. Come hear from some of the voices leading the church movement here in the U.S. and also around the world. 

- Food, Lodging, & Activities

There's no better place than the upper left corner of the USA! Students will have the chance to head out on hikes, day trips to Seattle, explore beaches, experience sporting events, and enjoy other local activities around the Pacific Northwest. 


All of the program documents and other required readings will be done mostly on a provided iPad.
