DTS = Discipleship Training School
YWAM = Youth with a Mission
The Homes of Hope DTS works with YWAM Perth’s ongoing Homes of Hope ministry, providing housing for communities in need.
This collaboration between ministry and DTS gives you an amazing opportunity to engage in serving “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40) in the Indian Ocean Gateway region.
We start out with three months of discipleship in YWAM Perth’s international missions community. A strong foundation is laid as we engage with topics such as God’s nature and character, hearing God’s voice, evangelism, missions and more. Discipleship happens in all kinds of ways throughout the DTS - through relationship, through serving together, reaching out to the city together, having fun together. Our time in Perth will also include workshops to help you develop practical skills to use on outreach.
On outreach we bring God’s hope to individuals, families and communities. We serve, share and build together with those we go to bless. We’ll put into practice all we’ve been learning – whether it’s pouring a foundation or proclaiming the gospel. We go to communities in the developing world where we can help practically. We’ll come alongside families lacking shelter to partner in building appropriate, sustainable housing, while also sharing the joy and love of Jesus Christ.
We’ll wrap up with a week back in Perth, sharing the stories of all God has done and getting ready for what He has next. Six months of knowing God and making Him know - what a foundation for your future!
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 Community Development School, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our Homes of Hope Ministry.
