Welcome to the home of SYME, the School of Youth Ministries in English. SYME is an English-only discipleship training school for Asian young adult students taught by native English trainers. We train students to become fluent in English so that they are able to study oversees in universities, graduate or ministry training schools and so that they are able to serve with international organizations. For at least four days a week from 7:40am -8:30pm students must interact only in English. They pay a $1.00 fine every time they speak their native language.
The full course is 8-months long and trains students each week in one of the 32 SYME Discipleship Topics. At SYME students will learn to lead youth club meetings, youth camps and learn basic skills on how to counsel young people. Each month We also have special sessions for men and women. The men’s session is called ‘Man to Man’ and focuses on 1. Integrity, 2. Significance, 3. Relationships, 4. Anger, 5. Vision, 6. Character, 7. Purity, and 8. Wisdom. The women’s session is called ‘Heart to Heart’ and focuses on a woman’s 1. Role, 2. Love, 3. Goodness, 4. Spirit, 5. Picture, 6. Attitude, 7. Control, and 8. Influence.
