A Discipleship Training School is six months of personally experiencing God and living the adventure of taking His message to the nations. Apply the truth of God to life and be further equipped to fulfill your purpose. It's an intense, full-time program consisting of two parts - lecture phase and outreach phase.
The lecture phase
You start out with 12 weeks of focused, intensive discipleship in our missions community. You and your classmates will explore a range of topics (God’s nature and character, God’s intention for individuals, peoples and creation, God’s redemption, God’s family, God’s world) and be guided by experienced local and international missions practitioners. Every week will address areas related to following Jesus in life and character, personal relationship with God and missions.
Outside the classroom you will continue to learn these things are you are involved in worship, prayer and intercession, one on one discipleship, work duties, small groups, evangelism, fun times.
The outreach phase
Following the lecture phase, your DTS will head off on a two month outreach where you will serve the lost wherever they are, and share the hope of Christ in many ways: evangelism, discipleship, sports, drama, youth ministry, teaching, prayer, practical service and mercy ministry.
We demonstrate the love of God to people through our lives and through the gifts that He’s given us. Teams regularly partner with local churches and YWAM ministries to strengthen their ministry and provide for follow up discipleship. Your final week of outreach will be de-briefing and equipping you to continue with everything that God has done in your life over the six months.
