It is almost too difficult to discern what is YWAM, the local Church, or Salem community when it comes to our local ministry involvement around our home area of Salem, Oregon because of the many things we are participating in. Therefore, be sure to also look at our schedules under the YWAM heading and MROA heading also.
Marriage is hard because it’s opposed … we are in a love story set in a world at war. These 6 to 8-week classes explore how to have a healthy marriage. Open to singles as well, and childcare is provided.
Class dates: January 27 – March 9, 2020 “Deep Purple” (On average we provide this class twice annually.)
These are great classes for everyone, not just couples because they deal with relationships in today’s world view and American society.
Information: please call the church office.
The next one will be held at the Church on The Hill at the North Campus OR South Campus soon so plan ahead. The evening normally starts at 6:30 pm and ends at 8:30 pm.

What if God designed marriage to make us holy instead of happy?
Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. Yet, what if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? And, what if your relationship isn’t as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God? Uncover how your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and each other.
You will learn how to:
- Turn marital struggles into spiritual and personal appreciation.
- Love your spouse with a stronger sense of purpose.
- Partner in the spiritual growth and character formation of your spouse.
- Transform a “tired” marriage into a relationship filled with awe and respect.
The above is just a brief informational of possible subject matter.
Value Packed Parenting:
Whether you are a new parent or long time veteran, these evening workshops will be some of the most valuable hours invested in. Childcare provided.

Evening Discipleship Course:
February 24 – April 6, 2020, and this one will be held at the YWAM Campus, 7085 Battle Creek Road SE
Our local church we attend offers this one night a week for seven week class in conjunction with our Youth With A Mission Campus (YWAM Salem) once and sometimes twice a year. The speakers are those who are in town teaching the Discipleship Training School (DTS) at our campus just down the road from Church On The Hill. Kathy and I staff this course and invite you to a taste of a DTS without the six month full time commitment that a DTS takes. But, this comes with a warning: It makes you hungry for more of God and want to do what Kathy and I have had the privilege to do for over thirty plus years now! Most participants that attend have done multiple of these annual courses! Sign up early for your seat. Details and schedule can be found at the church website just below this or by calling the church office. See ya’ll there!
