Our partnering ministries each work independently but we love to work alongside each other and support one another! You can see all the ministries come together in times of worship and intercession weekly. We also give our DTS students the opportunity to participate in these ministries during the course. Check it out!
Prayer Station is lead by one of our elders, Peter Kim, and his wife, Esther. Every Friday night, the Kims, along with many other volunteers, pass out tracts and booklets, lead worship or speak out an encouragement, and pray for those in need of prayer. Through Prayer Station, many people have given their lives to Jesus and declared that He is Lord! We are so privileged to have visiting outreach teams, people from the community and even our DTS students join in and serve in unity! Come down to 115 Queens Street, just outside the Burger King, on Fridays from 7 PM to 10 PM! Check out their Facebook and website below for more information.
KING'S KIDS NZ
King's Kids is an international YWAM movement focused on training and equipping children and youth. As our next door neighbor, we enjoy having family time together as well as coming together for worship and intercession. They have many ministries within their base as well, such as soccer lessons, Kid's Club, community bread pick up and coffee night. King's Kids also hold outreaches twice a year and camps as well. If you are interested in learning English as a second language, go to their website to see when they will do their next English For Missions school. Check out their Facebook, Instagram and website for more information.
Here at YWAM Te Ao Marama, we are passionate about reaching out the our community, which is predominately Pacific Islander. Some of our staff's children attend Favona Primary School and as a blessing in return we help serve them breakfast on Wednesday mornings while also enjoying a game of basketball or building relationships with the students and faculty.
MANGERE COLLEGE - BASKETBALL
Some of the staff at YWAM Te Ao Marama and King's Kids volunteer as basketball coaches at Mangere College. We are dedicated to reaching out to the youth and building relationships with them, by sharing a meal, inviting them to different events at the base, and even practicing here. We have recently started expanding, by joining in with other schools and hosting basketball camps for the students during their holiday breaks.
