a YWAM initiative
YWAM Converge is supported by a new YWAM ministry team in Ocean City, NJ. The YWAM Ocean City, NJ team is dedicated to help people from every walk of life, including believers in Jesus Christ, to discover their passions and purpose to serve God and make a difference in the world.
Founded by four YWAM staff and professionals, the Student Mobilization Centre offers students and recent graduates who are actively searching for internships the chance to experience what it means to make a real-world difference through their life and work. It enables them to search for ideal opportunities based on their spiritual journey, personal interests and professional skills.
The Student Mobilization Centre is a center of YWAM’s University of the Nations, an international post-secondary training center founded in 1978 and currently training 15,000 students in one of more than 300 registered courses in 97 languages.
Since 1986, we have mobilized 342 students from over 100 different colleges and universities onto 75 internship teams in over 35 countries. These interns help start businesses and plant churches, establish HIV/AIDS counseling clinics and health awareness campaigns, install water pumps and storage facilities, establish therapy routines for disabled children in orphanages, perform research on patient records in medical clinics, establish pharmacies with donated pharmaceuticals, develop healthy nutritional plans for hospice, and create curricula for schools.
Converge, the platform, is for anyone, anywhere.
The Converge DTS
The YWAM Ocean City, NJ team also offers YWAM's Discipleship Training School, registered with the UofN. It is a 6-8 month learning adventure that will bring participants into a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. The Converge DTS is the full-time training program required to become a YWAM staff member or to attend higher level coursework with the University of the Nations. (Note: The Converge internship course is not a DTS.) See our listing on YWAM.org here.
