Upcoming Schools: Children At Risk DTS! in January
September – March 2019 / Cape Town, South Africa
What is a Discipleship Training School (DTS) ?
The Discipleship Training School is more an experience than it is a school. An experience where you develop truth, faith, and character. If you’re tired of the normal classroom setting where you sit back in your chair and absorb facts from a talking head then this is the place for you. A place where we mix classroom with real life and expose you to experiences that leave you and the world changed forever. During your Children at risk DTS you will journey into the heart of God. This journey involves learning to see God, yourself and others as God does. It is a time that will instil within you a heart for everyone to know him, and it is a place where you will be given the opportunity to put that heart into action through hands on experience in ministry in Muizenberg as well as on your outreach. At the heart of any DTS is this…to know God and to make Him known.
This Children at risk school is for Christians who are passionate about reaching out to children at risk, like street children, kids from broken families, children with HIV/AIDS, and many other categories of children at risk. Teaching with this focus will happen one day a week during lecture phase and will be the main focus on the outreach phase of the school.
Every Friday during lecture phase there will be a different speaker and a focus on topics relating to children at risk. All speakers are practitioners in there particular field.
The Children at risk Dts will look like this:
The first three months of DTS will take place at YWAM Muizenberg on the Southern Peninsula of Cape Town, South Africa. Sharing life together in community, staff and students alike will submerge themselves into an intentional season of shared learning via lectures, regular rhythms of prayer and worship, manual labor and active service to the community around us. With the Mother City as our backdrop we will engage in a live/learn pursuit of a life shaped by the mercy of God. Our prayer is that this lecture phase will birth a love for Jesus, a lifestyle of active reconciliation and a vision for lifelong learning, in all who participate. Lecture topics include: The Father/Mother Heart of God, World View, Reconciliation & Peacemaking, Holy Spirit, Missions, The Kingdom of God and more.
Continuing in a posture of learning and with a vision of “Children at risk”, our final three months of DTS will consist of splitting into smaller focused outreach teams and heading to the nations. Carrying the two handed gospel which seeks to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of people, we will continue our communal discipleship journey while serving communities of conflict the world over. The hope for these outreaches is to be students of the peoples, places, and stories we come into contact with while discovering and sharing the heart of Jesus and supporting various ministries and Kingdom movements along the way.
Join us for Children at risk DTS if you desire to share your life for six months and have a passion for discovering Christ within yourself, within a community of active discipleship, and within a world aching for hope. APPLY TODAY!
