If you are not already familiar with the tables’ facility on your word processing programme, it would be good for you to have a basic grasp of this feature. When we get to the charting worksheets of the Online SBS, having a working knowledge of this will be a great asset and save you time!

User Profile

Once you have created your account please take some time to fill out the profile details. Please do this as fully as you can; be sure to include a photo. This is important, try to have a close crop head shot, not one that is too distant, and please, not one of your dog, cat or favourite animated film character!

In the ‘edit profile’ area you will find a place for you to write some text. Please use this area to tell us about yourself. For example let’s hear about your preferred name if it is different to what is recorded, your nationality, your family, your current ministry, church background, interests and pass-time activities and other stuff that would be fun and help us get to know you. If you are a YWAMer or YWAM alumni, do share what you have been up to during your time with us. There are editing features so if you are familiar with these you can add a photo or two of your family or ministry situation and make it look quite artistic.

People say”

An amazing course to allow revelation of Jesus each time you study
I got a new revelation of the holiness of God. It fills me with joy when I can help people answering their questions, helping them to see Jesus more clearly….
This programme is an important link to the Bible for me, just nourishing me in my regular daily life. I desired to engage with Scripture in a new way, and this is indeed what i have been doing.
