YWAM Community Audit

Early Celtic Communities built on the four pillars of -

  • Worship life
  • Prayer life
  • Community life
  • Mission life

This audit takes a look at our community life - in our individual bases and as a national community. Community is about sharing and communicating knowledge and experience so that everyone grows. This is accomplished as the members -

  • Engage in joint activities
  • Share information
  • Walk in openness and accountability to one another
  • Experience committed care from those they look to for leadership

Engaging in joint activities goes beyond the ‘working relationship’ where staff train or prepare together to serve in teams or on schools. It includes -

  • Placing a high value on corporate worship, prayer and hearing from the Lord together
  • Valuing times of teaching and learning together
  • Prioritising ‘family’ meal times on a regular basis
  • Making time for social interaction that facilitates building real and trusting relationships

Sharing information involves the two-way communication of all information that promotes and enhances the individual members’ sense of -

  • belonging
  • place
  • ownership of the corporate vision

Walking in openness and accountability to one another is about ‘holding all things in common’ and means -

  • Learning respect for one another
  • Building trust
  • Freedom to speak into one another’s lives
  • Understanding and honouring personal and corporate boundaries
  • Sensitivity to one another’s needs

Experiencing committed care should mean that there is an intentional commitment on the part of leadership to provide -

  • Ease of access
  • Pastoral care
  • Personal development

In light of the above, take a few minutes to assess your location / nation’s locations - affirming their strengths and noting their weaknesses - and ask the Lord to give creative strategies to help build more effective and mature community.
