School of Strategic Missions (SOSM)

School of Strategic Missions

In India this medical team prayed for this Indian man whose face was paralyzed and drooping on the entire left side. Moments before this picture was taken, this man was Divinely healed. Everyone there watched his face instantly become normal. Jesus Healed this man!

School of Strategic Missions

This same Indian man gave his life fully over to the Lord Jesus Christ. He is seen here praying to receive Jesus into his heart.


This incident of the Indian man being dramatically healed, and a handful of other Indians who were Divinely healed, opened the door for a powerful move of God in this region in India. Before these healings there was a small Body of Christian Believers in this Hindu dominated region. After these healings, masses of Indians began to invite Jesus to come be their only Lord and Savior. After almost 10 years this move of God is still continuing to grow.

This medical and prayer evangelism mission was birthed from a time of prayer where God revealed His instructions to carry out this mission strategy. Many of the components of the School of Strategic Missions were utilized to conduct this mission. Several thousand Indians have now made Jesus Lord because of this mission. Many churches have been planted from this move of God.

The School of Strategic Missions (SOSM) is designed to equip Believers with a “tool belt” full of cutting edge mission strategies. Armed with a worship / prayer lifestyle and this strategic mission tool belt, Believers can powerfully advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ’s Kingdom in any nation. The SOSM basically follows the same 5-6 month format that is listed on the Discipleship Training School page, along with the same weekly schedule. Each week you will have a different speaker who has lived the topic being taught. You can also find a list of the dates of the upcoming SOSMs and other mission schools on our main TRAINING website page (an below). The Discipleship Training School (DTS) is a prerequisite before you can take the SOSM. After you have taken the DTS and SOSM, then YWAM Austin will commission you as a Mission Strategy Coordinator.
