Engage and Embrace – Discipleship Training School


Upcoming Schools: Engage and Embrace DTS! in January

8 January–  15 June 2018 / Muizenberg, South Africa

A Discipleship Training School is more of an experience than a school. It is a journey where you develop truth, faith and character. During the ENGAGE & EMBRACE DTS you will learn to ENGAGE God and EMBRACE the World!

The Engage and Embrace DTS exists because we have a passion to see the body of Christ Engaging God in a way that is relevant to this generation. When we Engage God we can know His heart for Embracing everyone, especially those who are being oppressed and exploited.

What does God have to say about racism, xenophobia, refugees, etc? These are just some of today’s big topics that we will discuss and gain a greater understanding of. We are called to be the light of the world according to Matthew 5:14, and we will look at how in the midst of a world that is asking questions and feeling more confused

We will have teachers from all over the world from various church and cultural backgrounds give their input on the school. The topics will cover a wide range from how to Hear the Voice of God to having a Biblical Worldview, all with the intention of knowing God deeper. Outside of the classroom students can enjoy the local life by visiting all the coffee shops, surfing or taking a good book and reading it while overlooking the South Atlantic Ocean.

The Vision of this school is
To raise up people that will Engage God through His Word and Spirit in order to be effective in Embracing all people so that they can know the love of Christ.
