YMI Formation Programs 

We recognise that there is a need for ongoing formation after the YMI School finishes.

To answer this need, we offer

  • YMI Formation Programs for Youth Ministers
  • The opportunity to participate in YMI Missions overseas
  • Formal Formation Programs
    • ACU La Salle Academy Signum Fidei Program

The Equipping school was an incredible time of refreshment and renewal for me. It helped me to recast my vision for the ministry I’ve been called to and most importantly, gave me the time I needed to reconnect with The One who is the heart beat and reason for our ministry.
