  • What is a ywam DTS?

    What is a ywam DTS?

    A Discipleship Training School (DTS) will help you make a difference in this world by offering a life-changing experience that begins with you! A DTS is a full-time, community living training program that provides a supportive, live-and-learn environment for half a year. It is designed to help you cultivate growth in your relationship with God, enabling you to live more like Jesus, while actively going into the world to love, care for, and serve others in His name!

    The program includes both a lecture and an outreach phase, where students can learn and grow in their understanding of the nature and character of God, while becoming more Christ-like in the way that they relate to God and people. In addition they’ll gain cross-cultural exposure, global awareness, and a clearer understanding of God’s purposes and direction for their life, while identifying their unique God given gifts.

  • DTS Lecture Phase

    DTS Lecture Phase

    The three-month lecture phase provides teaching that is based on a solid biblical foundation and that is led through the work of the Holy Spirit, while enabling personal application of Biblical truth. Students will learn about different topics from several national and international speakers (for each topic we aim to get a speaker that has a lot of experience in the area they are teaching on) this makes lectures very practical and powerful.

    Some of the possible DTS topics include:

    • The Nature & Character of God
    • The Holy Spirit
    • Hearing God’s Voice
    • Worship & Spiritual Warfare
    • Identity & Destiny
    • The Father Heart of God
    • Godly Relationships
    • God’s Redemption: Sin & The Cross
    • Missions & Evangelism
    • and more

    The DTS curriculum can be found at www.ywamdtscentre.com.

    During the lecture phase students will attend lectures, receive one-on-one mentorship, and participate in a small group. They will also carry out a work duty within the community and local town, while enjoying meals, breaks, fellowship, as well as worship and prayer with one another. Students will also have the opportunity to be a blessing and to share God’s goodness with people in the city.

     

  • DTS Outreach Phase

    DTS Outreach Phase

    Have you wanted to experience the power of God and make a difference in this world or learn how to step out of your comfort zone and what it's like to share your testimony as well as aquire a passion for the Gospel?

    The outreach phase provides students with a cross-cultural experience and the opportunity to put into practice what they learned during the lecture phase. The school will be formed into smaller teams that will bring God’s love and hope into different communities in a practical way by partnering with local ministries in the community visited. During outreach the students will still receive one-on-one mentorship, and engage in worship and prayer together as a team.

    The individual schools can have different outreach locations, including South Africa, Sarajevo (Bosnia), Kyrgyzstan and more.

  • DTS Debriefing Time

    DTS Debriefing Time

    A DTS is a life-changing experience that lasts a lifetime. It is a stepping stone in your growth and walk with God. This is why we make sure to take time to sit down and process all you have learned and think about your next steps. How can you keep the fire? How can you continue to grow in your relationship with God? How can you be involved in ministry in the future? This could be attending school, working in the business world, becoming a full-time part of a church or doing missions work.

    The debrief time is a time that prepares you to go home and adjust to the environmental and social changes you may experience, as well as learn how to share with others what you have learned with God.
