I have spent much time in prayer over this in the past few years and believe God is calling me to make Disciples through Youth With A Mission. Starting with Disciple Number 0(me).
My DTS will be starting this July and will finish in december. I will be flying to Taurunga, New Zealand. Spending the first 12 weeks there. Then we will be heading out and finishing with our outreach phase.
What is a DTS?
Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) are divided into two parts. Lecture Phase and Outreach Phase. YWAM’s motto is to ‘Know God and Make Him Known’ and a DTS can simply be summarised in the same way: Lecture phase is about getting to know God more personally and deeply for yourself, allowing Him to make changes in your heart and life. Outreach phase involves taking everything you have learned on lecture phase and putting it into practice on a cross-cultural outreach.
For my DTS I have chosen a worship focus because I have a deep desire to bring the presence of The Lord more through the music that I play. Through-out the Lecture phase of this DTS I will be learning about the principles of YWAM and diving deeper into my relationship with Him, along side with being equipped to better lead God's people in worship.
After that my outreach phase will start we will leave taurunga new zealand on one of the two ships YWAM Marine Reach has. we will head to either southeast asia or Fiji. in which we will minister to locals, puting into practice everything we have learned.
I would love for you to partner with me in this. I will be keeping a blog up to date while i am in the lecture phase and as much as i can during outreach. If can not afford to give then please do pray. I believe there is much The Lord wants to do in me and through me.
