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 fulfil your purpose.
It’s an intense, full-time program consisting of two parts – lecture phase and outreach phase.
Start out with 12 weeks of focused, intensive discipleship in our missions community. You and your classmates will explore a range of topics, 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.
Living in a dynamic international missionary community provides a stimulating environment to get to know God more. In the classroom we will focus on a different topic each week, learning from experienced speakers who have lived out the principles they teach. You will also have opportunities to learn outside the classroom through worship, prayer, small groups and one-on-one discipleship.The emphasis is on encountering God and responding to Him, practically applying what you learn, which leads to growth and fulfilment in your relationship with Him. You will also learn about Gods’ love for the lost, and be empowered to share His love with others. You will learn about evangelism, missions and extending God’s hope to the poor and needy.
Imagine using your gifts and passions to share God’s love with people who need it! Our DTS outreach teams serve people wherever they are, demonstrating the love of God in whatever way we can: sports, drama, music, practical service, praying for needs, healthcare – we do it all. It’s all about bringing the love of Christ to people through our lives and through the gifts that God has given us.
After three months of lectures, your DTS will head off on a two month cross-cultural outreach. Outreach teams go and serve the lost wherever they are, sharing the hope of Christ in many ways: evangelism, discipleship, sports, drama, youth ministry, teaching, music, practical service, prayer, media, healthcare – we do it all. 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 will be spent back in Australia, de-briefing and being equipped to continue with everything that God has done in your life over the five months of the DTS.
