- Date: 9 November 2013
- Venue: Hamburg, Germany
OBJECT is an event to educate and motivate a generation to stand up to culturally accepted legal sexual exploitation. In Germany there are an estimated 400,000 women in prostitution. It’s estimated that up to 98%* of these women, many from Eastern Europe, have been trafficked or coerced into the industry. These women make up a small fraction of the millions of women who live in sexual bondage around the world.
We passionately believe all people are created in the image of God to live lives of dignity and freedom.
Join with us and many others as we seek for justice and defend women in all areas in which they are exploited. Be informed as you connect with others in strategy to build a network of people across the region who are ready to take action.
Get ready to practically and spiritually engage mercifully with the sex industry in your home area.
Be equipped with realistic expectations, practiced methods and biblical incentive to do ministry within this sphere.
The hope of this conference is that we are, together, able to focus
ON BRINGING JUSTICE & ENGAGING CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION.

Call2Compassion and Justice
- Date: 5 November 2013
- Venue: Mumbai, India
Call2Compassion and Justice is a five-day conference in Mumbai from 4-8 November 2013, which has at its core the connection between the Great Commission and the Great Command to love one another that is at the heart of compassion and the pursuit of justice.
Mumbai is a city where world-class ministries are doing transformative work among the poor: with slum dwellers, people who have been trafficked, those in prison, those living with HIV/AIDs, and with children at risk. The Global Compassion Network and the Social Stream of the Mumbai Transformation Network, invite all those working with churches and ministries engaged with compassion ministry, those feeling the God's call to begin such work, and those already connected to the Global Compassion and Call2All networks to join us in Mumbai to experience and to learn from what God is doing in this city.
Call2Compassion & Justice will equip churches and ministries for compassion ministry by sharing and learning from and experiences of the transformational ministries already active in Mumbai, building upon them with response and discussion led by speakers from India and from global networks and organizations involved with Global Compassion and the Call2All Network.
Plenary sessions will share God’s heart for compassion and justice, and focus on key ministry areas such as human trafficking, community development, children at risk, and HIV/AIDs. These will be followed by breakout workshops that will focus on key topics that are critically important in working in these areas. The delegate rate also covers the cost of visiting the various projects of Mumbai’s ministries in small groups to experience their work in a truly tangible way.
We believe that this will allow delegates and speakers to share their hearts, experiences and ministries with others, inspiring and enabling participants to take new ideas, models and skills away with them to develop and bear fruit in their own contexts, and to follow the call of Isaiah: “To loose the chains of injustice and to untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke. Is it not to share your food with the hungry and provide the poor wanderer with shelter, when you see the naked to clothe him and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” (Isaiah 58:6-7 NIV)

School of Communication and Advocacy
- Date: 8 July 2013
- Venue: Perth, Australia
As God’s people, we have the best message and it deserves to be communicated in the best possible way – whether across a table or across a nation. The School of Communication and Advocacy is designed to help us get more of God’s heart for areas of injustice and for communicating His message. It will equip students with practical communication skills to do this, such as public speaking, writing, and research, using the media to create effective tools, interpersonal and intrapersonal communication and more.
The school will have a focus on advocacy and how our communication can be a powerful tool for transformation and change. It will have input from local base ministries related to advocacy, such as our Human Trafficking ministry called Priceless.
We will also draw in local people who work in areas such as radio, law enforcement and government to talk about how our communication would best serve in these areas. It will also fulfil the core course outcomes for those pursuing a U of N degree.
We will also be offering a 8-10 week outreach focusing on human trafficking, and hopefully initiating a 5 year project with the school in a particular country.
I would love you to come and join us for the next school, starting July 7th, 2013!

4th International Member Care Consultation
- Date: 18 February 2012
- Venue: Singapore
I would like to announce and invite you to the 4th International Member Care Consultation in Singapore on February 17- 20th, 2012.
The MC core leadership team have been discussing and working on topics that will help serve us as an organization. Mission is no longer what is used to be with the recent global crises. With that in mind during out time together, we will be having 2 days of meetings on Trauma, Doing Member Care in Hostile Environments and how we (member care providers as well as leaders) can respond to it from debriefing, to communication, to putting structures and leadership in place during times of trauma and etc. We hope by the end of the two days we will be able to give ideas on how to set up a Quick ResponseTrauma Team in each region (depending on which regional MC people will come).
We will also have a day of teaching on Biblical Peacemaking by the International Peacemakers. This will help us in our conflict and reconciliation process within YWAM.
Cost: US$200 per person

Foundations of Community Development
- Date: 24 September 2011
- Venue: Harpenden, England
Our target, the glory of God: “For the glory of God and the transformation of nations; demonstrating and declaring the Kingdom of God through holistic community development”
How do communities move from despair to hope? It all begins with relationships. Poverty is more than an absence of income; it involves a whole way of thinking about and relating to the world, other people and even oneself. The Foundations in Community Development School is designed to give an overall view of the issues involved in helping communities (both rural and urban) to grow and be transformed towards God’s intentions. The foundation is a biblical understanding of the root causes of poverty and underdevelopment, and what steps must be taken to enable people to find solutions. In an age of mounting world crisis, where the top-down intervention of government and global organizations has failed to bring about lasting development, Christians have a vital role to play in showing that development is about changing society by reflecting God’s heart. The key is people - transformed hearts, minds, and lives; transformed communities, societies, and nations. The glory of God declared and demonstrated.
