In response to COVID-19 restriction, we’ve had to temporarily scale back from the 20+ DTSes we usually run each year. Read more about our usual range here or find out about our upcoming July 2021 DTS!
Innovate! Create! Discover the Creator who is active, speaking and wants to use you to bring His love and glory to the nations. From preaching the gospel, to helping those who need clean water, nutrition, and better living conditions, you get discipled while being equipped to be a part of seeing developing communities transformed.
The Discipleship Training School is six months of life-changing teaching, application and outreach, where we explore the character of God, His lordship, spiritual authority, missions, evangelism and many other topics. We learn to apply these truths to our lives and are given vital opportunities to do so. The first three months take place at the vibrant YWAM Perth community, where the Innovate DTS partners with the Appropriate Technology ministry. Students will get to see, work with and learn about the exciting technology this ministry has developed or adapted, and then multiplied into many developing communities in Asia and Africa.
During the outreach phase, the Innovate DTS, together with the Appropriate Technology ministry, serves impoverished communities. We help them through developing, building and teaching different technological solutions to problems like unclean water, sanitation, malnutrition, waste disposal and more. We use technology such as biosand water filtration, tower and keyhole gardens, composting toilets and more. Teams will live and work within these communities, building relationships, helping them utilise technology to improve their living conditions, and seeing the lost come to Christ through evangelism. This collaboration between ministry and DTS gives you an amazing opportunity to engage in serving “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40) in the Indian Ocean Gateway region.
We’ll wrap up with a week back in Perth, sharing the miraculous stories of all God has done and getting ready for what He has next.
A DTS opens doors to all kinds of training and missions opportunities! We invite you to get further training at YWAM Perth after your DTS through courses such as our Community Development School or you may want to work further with Appropriate Technology.
