Foundational Leadership Course


The Foundational Leadership Course (FLC) at YWAM Asheville is a 6 week program that gives the DTS graduate space to focus and refine their calling as a leader – and put it to practical use! If you want to join our team here at YWAM Asheville, pursue missions elsewhere, or be a missional influence in the spheres of society, the FLC will equip you to carry the light of the Gospel into any leadership role.

Disciples of Jesus are automatically called to be leaders. 

This is not dependent upon personality, charisma, or talent. It is dependent upon possessing the flame of truth that this blind world is searching for.

Why should I do the FLC?

•refine personal vision and mission

•deepen your understanding of the bible

•develop discipleship basics

•sharpen your god-given talents

•practice christlike leadership

•continue the growth that started in dts


February 1st – March 13th 2021


The only requirement is that you have graduated a Discipleship Training School.



room & board

YWAM Asheville has multiple houses that serve as our dorms & homes. As a FLC student, you will live in a house along with other students and staff of your gender. Most often, you’ll eat breakfast & dinner at home, and lunch at the classroom or during ministry times. Meals & transportation to and from class & other base actvities will be provided.

joining staff

Once you’ve completed your FLC, you are free to pursue a staff position at YWAM Asheville! We require FLC as a prerequisite to staffing with us to give you basic tools and practical training to step into a staffing role with YWAM Asheville. This course does not include an overseas outreach. However, should you stay on as staff after graduation, you will be part of staffing the DTS immediately following the FLC, with the potential of staffing the DTS outreach.
