frequently asked questions

Will the FCM bring healing to my own life?

God brings healing to the degree that we cooperate with his work in our lives, whether in FCM or elsewhere. Many subjects covered in FCM address learning to be whole so we can help others heal.

What does the outreach phase look like?

This FCM is responding to the global refugee crisis by sending teams to outreach locations where students will work with refugees. Students will apply what they’ve learned during the lecture phase through short teachings, relationships, and practical service.

What type of tools will I walk away with?

You will learn how to listen well, how to begin to minister to survivors of sexual abuse and other traumas, how to give short teachings, how to minister inner-healing prayer, how to understand grieving people and different personalities, how to renew your mind, and many other skills.

What is the work load of the school?

You will be attending daily FCM classes, and weekly YWAM community worship and intercession times. You will be assigned a two hour a day work duty. You will also submit journal work every week and write a paper approximately every other week.
