Communications Seminar

14 July – 3 August 2019

Are you passionate about using media as a tool to share good news, and shine a light on areas of need?

Today, with new media technologies, we have more capacity to communicate than ever before. But what are we communicating? Is it bringing life? Is it helping to promote positive change?

As communicators, we have a wonderful window of opportunity to use the tools God has given us to help transform lives and communities through the power of media.  

The YWAM Communications Seminar is a three week seminar designed to equip communicators across the Pacific with the foundations and skills needed to make a real difference in the media field.

During the seminar, students will have the option of choosing a particular expression of media to further hone in on their skills. The expressions available include:
