Be the leader God wants you to be

What is b2b?

One to two weeks of training for “emerging leaders”. 

The course has the same values as the 6-week Leadership Development Course but just giving a taste of some of the main content. 

b2b is to help launch you into leadership if you haven’t had much experience or help you to evaluate and develop as a leader if you have some years of experience.

General Information:

b2b is a course for YWAM volunteers. You need to have successfully completed a DTS and have at least one year’s experience as a leader

Who should attend a b2b?

It’s an intensive time set aside for anyone who wants to explore their leadership potential.

It’s designed for those who have a desire to grow as a leader themselves in order to equip others.

Whether you are just stepping into a leadership role or have been leading a team in the city for a few years, stepping into staffing a DTS, or on staff in some other capacity, you will benefit from the course.

Come to grow, come to go!

What are the key themes?

  • The starting point! – My passion for God, and passion to Go

A good leader creates followers; a great leader creates leaders, and b2b was an experience in which great leaders empowered young people like me to grow and be a point of reference to the new generations.
