DTS = Discipleship Training School
YWAM = Youth with a Mission
The beautiful and vibrant continent of Africa is home to more than 1.2 billion souls, many of whom don’t yet know Jesus. For different reasons, there is much need and opportunity for the gospel to flourish. The Africa DTS puts a focus on this amazing region, its people and God’s intentions for it.
During the first half of the school you will receive the core content of the DTS while experiencing our international missions community. We’ll look at topics such as evangelism, hearing God’s voice, prayer and worship, relationships and more. Learning and growth happen in all kinds of ways, such as small group discussion, classroom input, serving in the community, sharing the gospel and more. During these weeks you’ll also be involved in learning to reach out to the thousands of African migrants who have made Perth their home.
On outreach we’ll travel to nations in Africa to work alongside missionaries and local churches to reach out to those who have never heard the gospel and engage in different types of mercy ministry. God want to use us as His hands and feet! We see communities and individuals healed, restored and stepping into their full potential as they encounter God.
We’ll wrap up with a week back in Perth, celebrating all God has done, and getting ready for what He has ahead. Africa DTS is an incredible opportunity to experience God’s heart for the nations of Africa first-hand and get involved with what He’s doing.
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 School of Frontier Missions, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our South Sudan Ministry.
