ENGAGE God and EMBRACE the World!

A Discipleship Training School (DTS) is more of an experience than a school. It is a journey where you develop truth, faith and character.

Youth With a mission school

What is DTS?

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 this is possible 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.

How does a dts look like?

The first part of the DTS will take place at YWAM Muizenberg on the Southern Peninsula of Cape Town, South Africa. During lectures we will spend time worshipping God together, seeking His heart and searching in His Word for His ways. We will engage in intercession for nations and evangelism in this nation. The DTS is geared to disciple each person by creating a live-learn environment where we rub shoulders with those of different cultures. As we discover others cultures we see more of how God made us and we can celebrate the diversity. Every part of the DTS is designed with help from the Holy Spirit in order to facilitate growth. You will be challenged to live lives that reflect Christ in all you do. While on outreach, we focus on those that don’t have existing relationships with God yet – reconciling them to their Heavenly Father.

Our final three months of DTS will consist of going to the nations in smaller teams on outreach. We will partner with local YWAM bases, churches and ministries sharing the love of Jesus through evangelism, training and mercy ministries. Outreach locations differ from school to school depending on the vision of the school.

We will spend around 1-2 weeks after outreach back in Muizenberg in order to debrief.

Noah Fensome

I moved to Cape Town joined YWAM Muizenberg staff in January 2018. I’m originally from Vancouver, Canada where I was involved with an organization called Young Life. I have a heart for discipleship and to see the body of Christ empowered to live a life lead by the spirit! While I have no family in South Africa, It’s definitely earned a special place in my heart over the past few years!

I love to play guitar, sing, surf, and spend time with people. Some of my favorite artists are “Sleeping at last”, “City and Colour”. I also love traveling (especially by airplane) which is a massive plus when you work with YWAM.

Two years ago, I staffed the “E&E” DTS, Last year I lead it for the first time, and this year I’m unbelievably excited to be leading it again in 2020. Come join me and some of my favorite people in the world (the staff +Jesus) for a program that can change your life!
