"Pursuit of God, While Touching Nations"

Structure of the Pursuit Internship

The Pursuit Internship is a dynamic life-changing Discipleship Training School; a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM). It is a time of getting to know God in a whole new way.

Lecture Phase

The first three months have teachings from international and GPH leaders that reveal the nature & character of God. It is a time to grow in truth and understanding in our personal relationship with God.

Outreach Phase

The last two months of the Internship is a cross-cultural experience that takes what has been learned and puts it to use through publicly testifying to the truth.


We invite you to set your heart to embrace five months of living a fasted lifestyle: primarily a fast of personal comfort and time, as well as an invitation to fast food. This is a time to expect God to deal with your perceived identity and destiny.

Prayer Room

The Internship is an extension of the prayer room. The prayer room is a spiritual greenhouse for the development of a spiritual “root system” (secret history in God) that enables quick growth in the context of a fasted lifestyle (prayer, fasting, giving), pursuing love as defined in Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5-7). The prayer room times include intercession sets, worship with the Word sets & devotional style sets. We will be giving you tools for the prayer room to help you to develop a strong prayer life that facilitates and accelerates spiritual growth.


We expect all students and Internship staff to participate in all prayer room sessions as well as Encounter Nights and Sunday Expression church services. These events require mandatory attendance.

We value spending long hours before the Lord to grow in intimacy and intercession. Scripture teaches that prayer is essential as God’s primary methods of establishing His kingdom in the earth (Luke 18:1-7). Intimacy and urgency fuel intercession.

  • Hearing God’s Voice and Prophecy
