Unleash your full potential through growing in relationship with God as you dive deep into six months of intensive discipleship. Harness the love of sport to bridge language and cultural barriers, to build relationships and open the door to preach the gospel.
DTS has three phases:
1. We start out with three months at our mission centre in Perth. We’ll focus on topics like hearing God’s voice, evangelism, spiritual authority and missions. We will learn how to apply truth though lectures, small groups, urban outreach, intercession and amazing times of worship and getting out together to engage in a variety of sports. We will get involved in our local community through different sport initiatives, while also learning how to share the gospel on the streets of Perth.
2. We push our limits on outreach the next three months, tackling the challenge of bringing the gospel to the nations. It may take you to a soccer match on a small field in a cramped slum, basketball in one of the megacities within the Indian Ocean Gateway, or volleyball in a remote mountain village.
Wherever we go, we put what we’ve learned into practice as we preach the gospel and meet practical needs. We’ll use the tool of sport to serve, build relationships and share the love of Jesus with the people and communities we meet. The goal is that the lost will know Jesus and His ways will be known.
3. We finish up with a week back in Perth, sharing the stories of the amazing things God has done and looking ahead to what He has next. We’re convinced life is not a spectator sport – God has a place for you in His purposes!
A DTS opens doors to all kinds of training and missions opportunities! We invite you to get further training at YWAM Perth through courses such as our Bible School for the Nations, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our Sports Ministry.
Starts every July and October.
