DTS = Discipleship Training School
YWAM = Youth with a Mission
Rethink your definition of “classroom” with our 4WD Adventure DTS! Tackle the core content of a Discipleship Training School from a different perspective as we take it to remote, pristine beaches and into the Outback of Australia.
We’ll encounter God in new ways as we’re immersed in His creation. We’ll kick off the first half of our DTS based primarily in our urban missions community. Three weeks of our lectures will take place while we camp in one of the beautiful beach areas in Western Australia accessible only by 4 wheel drive. Out of the city and off the grid, together we’ll focus on knowing God deeply while also getting to experience the beauty of His creation in Australia. We’ll explore topics like hearing God’s voice, worship, evangelism and missions. Discipleship happens through teaching times, on the trail, around the campfire, setting up tents and taking His good news to the hard to get to places.
The second half of the DTS will go even further, as part of the 12 week outreach will take place in the Kimberley, the far north of Western Australia where the majority of the population is Aboriginal. In partnership with Aboriginal elders and communities, we will minister alongside and to Australia’s First People. The other half the outreach will take us out into the nations of Asia or Africa, going to people who need to know the transforming, compassionate love of Jesus.
We’ll then come back together, having the opportunity to share the stories of what God has done, the many people who we’ve seen saved and the transformation that’s taken place in our lives.
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 Transformation School, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our Revive Ministry.
