The Discipleship Training School (DTS) is the initial training required to be a part of Youth With A Mission on a full-time basis and also the requirement if wanting to complete any Second Level schools such as the School of Frontier Missions (SOFM). All Youth With A Mission schools are part of the University of the Nations and are credited courses. (Scroll to the bottom for costs, dates, and outreach location)
What Makes our DTS so Different?:
The DTS at YWAM Grenada is a Transformational Discipleship Training School which means that we have several weeks of topics that deal with inner healing such as "Father Heart of God", "Dealing With The Past", "The Cross", and several others where each topic is one week long. Other DTS locations combine many of these topics into one week not allowing as deep of a healing and transformation to take place. Worship is a key part of our every day lives as we live for Christ; we worship when we wash clothes, wash our hair, sing praises, go to the store and even go to work. So what does a lifestyle of worship really mean? This will be answered and demonstrated here at YWAM Grenada, so come and join us!
YWAM DTS Course Description:
The DTS is a 5 month school (3 months classroom and 2 months outreach) designed to encourage students in personal character development, cultivating a living relationship with God and identifying their unique individual gifts and callings in God. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout the course, preparing students to reach current and future generations and answer the call “to go into all the world and disciple all nations.” Matthew.28:19
Purpose and Outcomes of DTS:
To GATHER and CHALLENGE people to worship, listen to and obey God, releasing them (in the context of the DTS) to serve through evangelism, intercession, acts of compassion and other expressions of God's heart for the world, possibly even pioneering new ministries.
To INSPIRE and CULTIVATE growth in one's relationship with God resulting in Christ like character, which is based on a solid Biblical foundation, the work of the Holy Spirit and the personal application of Biblical truth, especially concerning God's Character, the Cross andempowering Grace.
