What is a DTS?
Discipleship Training School (DTS) is a 6 month training program for those around the world who want to deepen their relationship with Christ. We focus on knowing God deeper and making Him known to the Nations. DTS is broken into two parts; the lecture phase and outreach phase. During the lecture phase the students attend daily classes to learn more about the word of God and their identity in Christ. During this time God works deeply in the hearts of the students, bringing them into healing, restoration, and fulfillment in His love. Really cool stuff! During the outreach phase the students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned and go out to other nations to share the Gospel with the lost. Often outreach is a very challenging and life changing experience for most students and a time of strengthening all that God has done in their lives.
Why are we so passionate about DTS?
We have a heart for leading people into emotional and spiritual healing through God's love. As DTS staff we have the opportunity to walk through this process with people on a deep level. We have experienced and seen the amazing things God does through the DTS and the impact our students make around the world in missions. In short, DTS is a game changer for so many people. God longs so much for us to choose Him and love Him with all our mind, body, and spirit. He desires for us to know Him and pour out His mercy and love on us. We want people to experience God. Experience His love. Experience a life of freedom and a heart to love others.
What DTS is happening right now?
We are starting to prepare for the ARTS DTS 2018! We just finished a week at the YWAM Gathering in Biarritz, France. We learned so much from wonderful DTS leaders from all over Western Europe and we have been pumped up for this next years DTS coming up in January!
Josh will be leading the Arts DTS for his second time in January. It is a privilege and a blessing to be able to serve the Lord by discipling and loving the next group of students that come through our doors.
In the months before the school starts we will be planning and preparing for the school. This involves accepting and processing new students, setting up the school schedule for the first 3 months, preparing what subjects we want tough on the school, looking for speakers for the school, meeting weekly to continue to pray for what the Lord will be doing during the next school, and many more amazing and exciting things that go into preparing for a school.
Stay tuned for more amazing Videos and Pictures to come!
