DTS = Discipleship Training School
YWAM = Youth with a Mission
This DTS combines 4 great themes!
Adventure: Being a disciple is a life-long adventure of following God! Whether you’re working in the heart of a mega-city, or in a remote desert; in a business, at home, or missions; whatever you do with the rest of your life, be prepared for the adventure that awaits!
Children and Youth Ministry: Be empowered to reach this generation with the gospel! Young people have the capacity to make an amazing difference in the world. They are the most open to the gospel and it’s the best time in their life for them to be introduced to a relationship with God and begin to walk in the calling and destiny that God has for their lives.
Transformation: God doesn’t want us to conform to the pattern of the world, he wants us to be transformed from within, by Him. People who have been transformed by God are then able to transform the world around them, in the power of God. They become world changers!
Supernatural: Jesus promised that signs would accompany those who believe, and this was proven by the early disciples. They "went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it."
Living in a dynamic 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 in your relationship with Him.
As you grow in relationship with God, you will also learn about His 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. Each week, you will have opportunities to put into practice the principles you learn, in our local community and the city of Hobart.
NIKO - We will be running a four-day Niko program as part of the ACTS DTS. Niko is a Greek word which means “to conquer or to overcome.” The Niko program will take you outdoors to learn more about yourself and who God made you to be; about leadership and working in teams, vital for the outreach phase of the DTS.
Imagine using your gifts and passions to share God’s love with people who need it! Our DTS outreach teams go and find the lost wherever they are, and then demonstrate the love of God in whatever way they 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.
Wherever you go on outreach:
- You will grow in confidence as you see God using you to show His love to others.
- You will gain a greater perspective of the world and what God is doing.
- You will see great needs and be part of God’s solution
