Discipleship Training School (DTS)

Where it all starts. A Discipleship Training School is all about learning what it means to be a  disciple of God, hearing his voice, walking out your calling, and using your passions to make a difference. It is a 6-month live-learn program taking place here in the heart of where the Biblical narrative took place. 

Just as for any DTS around the world, the first 3 months are what we call our “lecture phase” where we focus on knowing God and discovering what it means to be a disciple. It consists of weekly lectures on faith-related topics such as the Character and Nature of God, Hearing God’s Voice,Identity and Lordship. We grow in community, through a live-learn environment, serving one another and those around us. We worship, pray, eat, laugh and learn as we grow together in our faith.

Specific to each DTS are the next 3 months where we are going on cross-cultural outreaches that will focus on serving people.

From running health classes to serving in churches, drinking tea in people’s homes and engaging in community development projects, each DTS serves the nations  through their own unique passions and service.
