“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)

The family is the main sphere of society. From the family, the future is defined, being a society with values or not. Throughout the world the family is under attack. Traditionally, the family structure is being broken through divorce, the number of marriages is decreasing and parents are neglecting their God-given responsibilities. Roles are being changed and children are growing up without emotional stability and safety.

Is there any respond?

Yes! God, who is the family and the answer! YWAM Monte das Águias, through the Family Ministerial School, believes that the Word of God contains the key to a healthy and functional family life. The Family Ministerial School has the objective of mobilizing restored and transformed families through the healing of broken and wounded relationships and also equipping them with practical skills regarding relationship, marriage, parenthood and life based on biblical principles.

The Family Ministerial School (E.M.F.) was developed for those who feel a call from God in their lives to help family life as God designed. This school will provide biblical and practical training to minister to each family member and consequently other families. It is also the primary vehicle for multiplying ministries for families nationally and internationally. Restore, equip, and mobilize people in a biblical view of God’s fundamental principles of family relationships and their relevance to personal life and today’s society.
It happens during 3 months where the student is full time integrated into the community living. These 3 months will be very intense. This phase will be part of the students’ life as they are being taught by national and international teachers, having intercession and praise times, film summary, seminars, special events of leisure and communion, and short film work.
As this is a second-level school, the internship is optional and the student will have up to 2-years to take it; however we encourage those who can do it right after the lecture phase.

This course makes part of the College of Counseling at the University of the Nations.

The College of Counseling (CNH) aims to train and mobilize followers of Christ as agents of God’s healing in areas of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational health. An important focus of our graduates is the poor and needy. Students learn an integrated biblical model of ministry that is easily adaptable to diferent cultural and social settings, providing a powerful entry into the lives of individuals and families. Our training programmes equip students in areas of biblical counseling and primary health care with ministry impacting individuals, families, communities and nations. Biblical counseling helps people encounter God to receive revelation, healing, grace and spiritual authority. Our training programmes equip counselors to help others grow in personal and relational wholeness, dealing with poor personal choices, family issues, unresolved conflict, compulsive behaviors, and the wounds of injustice. Focused schools and seminars address issues relating to working with families, children and addictive behaviors.

Primary health care: Improved access to basic health care is a nearly universally felt need. Our health care training focuses on helping families and communities prevent and treat diseases and improve their water, nutrition and birth practices at the household level. Students learn skills in assessment, treatment, prevention, and education. Focused schools and seminars address working in areas of maternal health, community health development, malaria prevention and treatment, etc. The sphere of society which is central to the College is that of family. The disciplines of counseling and health care minister to the family’s internal and external needs, equipping healthy and holy families as a basic building block for discipling the nations. Where possible, our desire is that health care and counseling work in an integrated way, recognizing that the health of the heart must be addressed before we also see lasting change in health of the body.
