Advanced Family Studies Intensive – 2021

Current Status

Get Started

How do we effectively work with today’s young generation? How can we answer their purpose & identity questions? How do we motivate them for a lifetime of missions with a healthy family identity?

These are some of the questions we, as colleagues with a mission, wrestle with during the AFS intensive. This December we get together for 9 days of onsite live lectures and interaction, preceded by online tools & resources to prime you for this Intensive.


This advanced mini-course is part of the full Advanced Family Studies. In this intensive we dive deeper into two main topics:

  • Coaching – using Motivational Interviewing techniques
  • Gender & Sexuality

Dates & Location

The intensive runs from 1-9 December 2021 at YWAM Heidebeek in the Netherlands. Arrival is the day before (Nov 30) and debriefing and departure is on December 10th.


The cost of €650 is including all course materials, accommodation & food. It will also give you access to the online module containing videos, reading and assignments for both the Motivational Interviewing and the Gender Issues topics. It excludes airport transfers and the optional registration for credit (see below).


Since this is part of our full 12-credit Advanced Family Studies (AFS) course you can get 3 UofN credits when participating in both the online preparatory module and the 9-day intensive. The credits are earned through the UofN Extension Studies center and can be used to complete the full AFS online, which in turn can contribute to the BA degree in Family Studies. Registration for credit is at an extra cost (€50).
