YWAM Together 2018

Children and Youth Tracks

The global family of YWAM is coming together this September in Pattaya, Thailand. We are thrilled at YWAM Gateway to serve the younger generations and families of our movement by leading the Children and Youth tracks.
YWAM Together is an exciting opportunity for the younger members of our family to be inspired and equipped. We believe this is a time for them not just to come along with Mom and Dad, but to understand their God-given capacity, destiny and role within their own biological families and their extended global YWAM family, as we enter in this new season of God's unfolding promises together.

The tracks will be lead by the KKI (King's Kids International) ministry of YWAM Gateway, Hong Kong. They have many years of experience serving the children, youth and families of Asia and are recognised for leading the Gateway GPS Camps and Outreaches every summer in Hong Kong and other YWAM and KKI ministries.

Children & Youth Tracks will be held during morning and evening sessions. We will also have special optional events for the whole family.
Babies & Toddlers: 0-3 years
Our child care program will provide a loving atmosphere in which the spiritual, social, cognitive, physical and emotional development of young children can be nurtured. Bible stories, worship songs, “praying on the big map”, crafts and lots of toys!
Naps and changing nappies will also be an important part of our program.

Destiny by Design Curriculum
Through teaching, discussion groups and a variety of fun and dynamic activities the teens will discover how God reveals their unique design through:
  • Dreams – explore your passions, interests, desires. What makes YOU come alive?!
  • Experience – recognizing life giving experiences, good and bad experiences. God wants to use them all. God is bigger than our experience.
  • Soulprint – includes personality inventory – your personality is designed perfectly for your calling!
  • Identity – who are you…really?
  • Gifts – looking at gifts we have and gifts we don’t have. They are all part of His design. Includes a Motivational Gifts inventory.
  • Network – we were created to be connected. It is the key to multiplication.
  • Conclusion – this is where we pull it all together and discover patterns that make up your unique design.
This curriculum will be taught throughout all morning sessions.
Family Team Adventures
A fun, dynamic and energizing afternoon geared towards building and strengthening healthy families so that they would step out in faith with God in life adventures, taking steps together as a team.

Through different games, experiential activities, combined teachings based on practical analogies from sports we explore how to become a "winning family team", learning how to actively honor and encourage each family member’s input and participation into the daily lifestyle of the family.

Join us on Friday, September 7, from 2:30 to 5pm.
Please note that the schedule may be subject to changes. In case of modifications we will inform the parents.
We will be posting further updates on this page.
