Lecture Phase

First of all, the Philippines is the most strategic launching pad to Asia to meet the demands of the Great Commission in the area of evangelism and cross-cultural mission activity resulting in changed societies that transform nations in line with Biblical Theism.

     Secondly, without a doubt, the School of Evangelism will provide the environment for many Asian focused workers, who have already taken a step forward in doing Youth With A Mission's Discipleship Training School, to further upgrade, develop and sharpen their gifts and leadership skills as they seek out their role in the Great Commission of Jesus Christ spelled out in Matthew 28:19-20 "Go into all the world and make disciples of every nation."
