Discipleship Training School

Upcoming Schools: 31 March, 23 June, 22 September 2014 – Apply Today!

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 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 instill 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.

Come join us for this life changing experience and see how you can change the world.  Are you ready for the challenge?
