Discipleship Training School
The DTS is a six month program designed to encourage students to cultivate a living relationship with God, to develop in personal character, and to identify their unique individual gifts and callings in God. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout these courses, preparing the students to reach current and future generations and answer the call of Matthew 28:19.
Our slogan in YWAM is:
"To know God and to make Him known"
In this we split up our school into the "to know God" which is our lecture phase and the "to make Him known" with our outreach phase.
In the lecture phase, we invite speakers who cover many topics from the nature and character of God to hearing His voice. Other topics include: Spiritual Warfare, Evangelism, Faith and Finances, Relationships, and Spiritual Gifts. This will deepen your head and heart knowledge of the Lord and challenge/equip you to reach the lost with the Gospel of Christ.
Our locations for outreach are unknown until part way into Lecture Phase. Students learn and practice hearing God's voice and then together ask and wait on God for where He calls them. We like to say that the world is our limit!
Depending on the location, students can participate in ministry such as: teaching English to adults and children, ministry in orphanages and schools for the blind, as well as participate in sports ministry, staff medical clinics, and prayer treks throughout the nations. We are open to what the Lord has for every school and outreach location.
