UPDATE: We are no longer offering a standalone DTS.

Burning Lights?

Learn to live as He lived: wildly in love, wholeheartedly submitted to the Father, and empowered by Holy Spirit.

Jesus said of John the Baptist that he was the lamp that was burning and was shining in whose light they rejoiced … John 5:35

This little light of mine, I am going to let it shine!

What is a DTS?

Know God more | Make Him known

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) is a 6-month Kingdom-training program in which the students not only learn about God and His nature but experience Him one-on-one, leading to deep transformational work. Students are then empowered to go out and make Him known, just as the great commission mandates.

Therefore go out and make disciples of all nations …

Matt 28:19

Through community living, classroom settings, cross-cultural missions, times of worship, prayer, and serving, students will be encouraged and challenged in their faith as they learn to step out in a supportive and loving environment.

Lecture Phase

The Lecture Phase is the first three months of the DTS. This time is focused on knowing God, not only with greater understanding but also in a personal & transforming way. It is a time to learn about His Kingdom, encounter His great love, be set on fire, and be given the necessary tools to maintain the flame far beyond the student’s season with YWAM.

Weekly topics will be taught by a variety of empowered speakers who will also provide times of ministry for the students.

Topics like: Hearing the Voice of God, The Nature and Character of God, Holy Spirit, Jesus & The Cross, Evangelism, The Father Heart of God, Spiritual Warfare, Kingdom Culture, Biblical Worldview & World Mission, Relationships, and Identity & Destiny.

In addition to this, students will be provided with one-on-one care, small group sessions, and opportunities to serve in areas such as hospitality, worship, prayer, daily chores, and local ministry.

Outreach Phase

Following the lecture phase, students and staff will spend 2-3 months in a cross-cultural missions practicum, taking God’s great love and His transforming power to the nations. This is a time to put into practice all that was learned and experienced during the lecture phase.

On the Outreach, students and staff will have the opportunity to stretch their faith as they step out and risk greatly for the sake of His Kingdom.

And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s kingdom realm is accessible, close enough to touch.’ You must continually bring healing to lepers and to those who are sick, and make it your habit to break off the demonic presence from people, and raise the dead back to life. Freely you have received the power of the kingdom, so freely release it to others.

Matt 10:7-8 TPT
