Discover your next step in Him through six months of focused discipleship and missions experience – a Discipleship Training School. Jesus’ disciples grew and were trained through spending time with Him – observing what He did and following His lead. Their discipleship included intentional community, watching His example closely, discussing questions, extending compassion, taking the gospel public. Our live/learn approach is shaped by this model.
The first 3 months of your DTS, commonly called the “lecture phase”, will be spent at YWAM HCMC learning from speakers we trust on foundational discipleship topics such as Nature and Character of God, Hearing God’s Voice, Relationships, and Missions. The goal of the lecture phase is to allow God to change your life based on what you’re learning and not have it just be head-knowledge. You will be surrounded by people around the same age who are all running after the same thing – to know God and to make Him known.
The second phase of your DTS will be spent on a 2-3 month outreach. The location will be revealed during lecture phase. This phase allows you to put into practice everything you just learned and to share the good news of Jesus Christ cross-culturally. Outreach will provide you with a glimpse of cross-cultural missions as your team serves alongside local believers, existing ministries, and long-term missionaries. You will work and serve in a lot of different ways, but at the end of the day, the goal is to make God known. So, when you choose to do a DTS, you are joining the world-wide movement to make Jesus known in all nations of the world.
