YWAM Tasmania is a ministry and missions training centre located on the beautiful countryside of Tasmania. Our property sits on a beautiful 200 acre sheep farm on top of a hill, which overlooks the town of Sorell and the sea. Our natural surroundings make for a peaceful and quiet location, perfect for spending time in prayer and worship. There is always plenty of wildlife around and it’s not uncommon to see wallabies roaming around in the fields.
We are currently building a self-sustaining, environmentally friendly centre where our staff, students and visitors can spend time getting to know God. This means we are developing more community buildings, more housing, and increasing our sustainable community projects.
The legacy of this property has been in caring for and equipping people to carry God’s love to the nations. This is why our emphases here is on intimacy with God and building community. These objectives are the basis of our vision and are carried out through all of our ministries and relational endeavours.
Our heart is to Live Transformed, Lead Others, Launch Multiplication, and Love the World!
There are a variety of training courses available year-round. YWAM’s foundational course, which serves as the prerequisite for all other training programs, is called the Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS). Most YWAM courses can be combined into degree programs through YWAM’s University of the Nations.
For many YWAM students, the intensive learning combined with community living makes for a transformational experience.
Every January and October we run DTSs; some of our common themes are Adventure, Transformation, and Youth Ministry. We also run Second – Level Schools such as: Principles in Children and Youth Ministry (PCYM), Discipleship Bible School (DBS), Worship, Intercession, and Spiritual Warfare (WISE) Seminar; as well as Internships that combine training and staffing over the course of two years. We are a base that believes in training and learning and would love to invest into you to see you excel in missions long term.
It is time for you to Be Adventurous, Be Transformed, and Be His Hands and Feet!
