Discipleship Training School is a five-month course in a live/learn community where you spend time getting to know God and His purpose for your life. Lecture Phase, the first three months, consists of class time, local outreach, elective tracks, worship, and fellowship. The last two months, Outreach Phase, allows you to walk out what you have learned in the Lecture Phase by going, serving, and reaching others with the love of God. Come and discover your purpose and impact people, communities, and nations.
DTS consists of 3 months of classroom learning called Lecture Phase. During Lecture Phase, you learn about who God is and the purpose and calling He has placed on your life. You will learn through class time with gifted speakers, worship, intercessory prayer, small groups, one-on-one discipleship, Bible reading, local outreaches, personal devotions, community responsibilities, fellowship, and elective tracks.
During Outreach, you practically apply all you learned in Lecture Phase as you go into the nations and share the love of God. You will live immersed in a culture not your own, obeying the Lord’s commission to go, sharing the gospel, serving local ministries, and making disciples. Currently, our three focus areas include Central Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East.
We ask that you have the equivalent of a high school diploma or are at least over the age of 18.
