DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL (DTS)

September DTS

Your journey to discover your call in the Great Commission starts here…

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) gives you an opportunity to discover your passion and your part in God’s purpose for the world. It is for those who desire to follow Jesus in deeper and new ways with a unique perspective. We find our purpose as we discover His global purpose!

What is DTS?

The 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?

Here you will discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus by discovering Him through His Word, His People and His Ways. You’ll not only learn from teachers but also from community living and practical training. Growth takes place not only in the classroom, but in all aspects of life. This is why the DTS Lecture Phase is structured in so that the, whole experience is a learning environment and opportunity for growth. Small groups, discussions, community outreach, worship times, and more, are all ways that you will have opportunity to encounter God and be shaped by Him. 

Over 3 billion people have not heard about Jesus and we are going to change that! We believe that discipleship is not complete until you, a disciple, begin to make disciples. Therefore, we will go out into the nations and declare His Good News to His people.You will have a chance to discover your abilities and gifting as you care for people and put into practice what you have learned during the Lecture Phase. You’ll be spending 9 – 10 weeks serving in various locations, locally and internationally with a team from your DTS. Outreach locations vary depending on the school and/or focus. You will find out your outreach location during the school.

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

Meet The School Leader!

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!
