Upcoming Schools: Cape Town in January!
January– June 2019 / Cape Town, South Africa
In our June DTS lecture phase, we will take you back to the basics of missions. We desire to equip people on how to live a missional focused life in the sphere of influence that they are called to. You will go to deeper levels of commitment through studying God’s word, discovering more about His character, and finding His purposes for the future. Your passion will be refined and directed to fulfill God’s intentions for your life.
The outreach phase allows you to apply the principles you soaked up during class. This is ten weeks of life-changing opportunity! It includes sharing the love of God through friendship evangelism, drama, music, teaching, and just about any other way you can think of.
The 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 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 “the Beloved Community”, 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 the January 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!
