Experiencing the Word! 18 Month Combined Discipleship Training School & School of Biblical Studies – Apply Today!
September of 2018 / Muizenberg, South Africa
Jesus, the Word made flesh, invites us to enter into fellowship with the Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirit, and with His body, to enjoy Him and participate with Him in the expansion of His Kingdom in this world. The heartbeat of this extended DTS/SBS journey is that each person would come to experience the life of Christ and his empowering presence made available to us every moment of every day and have the opportunity to see this become an integral part of the rest of our lives. We want to grow in living & loving like Jesus, the Word made flesh.
We are excited to bring together into one program both the Discipleship Training School and the School of Biblical Studies. We want to create a sense of continuity between these two schools, bringing them together in a way that they flow naturally together. From the discipleship experience of a DTS with weekly topics, on to DTS outreach, and then returning for a continuation of that same experience while studying through each book of the Bible, journeying with the same students and staff each step of the way, finishing with a second outreach at the end. In order to facilitate the processing and the pace desired, we have extended the SBS an additional month to 10 months. This combined experience, with both DTS & SBS outreaches, will create an opportunity to see not only incredible growth and impact, but to set in place lifelong rhythms of knowing God & making Him known.
Come join us at YWAM Muizenberg, in the beautiful city of Cape town. Just a couple minutes walk from a surfer’s paradise and a few more minutes from nearby township communities. We will regularly engage with God’s heart and actions in and around this incredible community.
Outreach locations have not been finalized, but will include working among the Syrian refugees, as well as locations in Africa, & Asia.
The program will begin with the March DTS and outreach (more info here). Whichever students are interested, can then choose to continue on for the remainder of the SBS & SBS outreach (for more information about SBS click here). For those interested in this program, they would need to apply for a special extended visa in their home country before coming. Please be aware that this can take some time as it requires a background check and often an in-person visit to the nearest South African embassy.
The heartbeat of this 18 month extended DTS/SBS journey is that each person would come to experience the life of Christ and his empowering presence made available to us every moment of every day and have the opportunity to see this become an integral part of the rest of our lives. This will be our second time running it, the first one has been so transformational that we knew we had to run it again.
