NOTE: This stream runs as part of the October DTS 2023, together with Compassion and Music streams. You will have lectures with all streams combined, and then split up for individual workshop times in each area of interest.
Unleash your full potential through growing in relationship with God as you dive deep into six months of intensive discipleship. Harness the love of sport to bridge language and cultural barriers, to build relationships and open the door to preach the gospel.
Discipleship Training School starts out with 12 weeks of pursuing God together, tackling topics like worship, prayer, God’s fatherheart and taking the gospel public. Our integrated approach to discipleship means learning and growth happen in the classroom, in the streets, in small group discussion, through hands-on serving and more. And it’s all in the context of our international missions community, alongside of people from all over the world, committed to God and His purposes.
Knowing genuine relationship with God isn’t just for us, though! God wants to bring His hope and healing to a hurting world. And He wants to do it through us - through our gifts and our availability!
We push our limits on outreach the next three months, tackling the challenge of bringing the gospel to the nations. It may take you to a soccer match on a small field in a cramped slum, basketball in one of the megacities within the Indian Ocean Gateway, or volleyball in a remote mountain village. Wherever we go, we put what we’ve learned into practice as we preach the gospel and meet practical needs. We’ll use the tool of sport to serve, build relationships and share the love of Jesus with the people and communities we meet. The goal is that the lost will know Jesus and His ways will be known.
We finish up with a week back in Perth, sharing the stories of the amazing things God has done and looking ahead to what He has next. We’re convinced life is not a spectator sport – God has a place for you in His purposes!

There was a large park close to where our team was staying and we went there almost on a daily basis to play sports and build relationships with people in the community. During our trips to the park we began to recognise we were meeting a lot of refugees who were from Middle Eastern countries. They had escaped violence and were living in the country where we were while they tried to gain citizenship elsewhere. There were three men that were very interested in learning more about Jesus and had heard more about Christianity since they had come as refugees. We began having Bible studies with them and taught them more about the forgiveness, hope, and direction that Jesus brings into our lives. As we built relationship with these men, we were able to introduce them to a long-term missionary in their area who they could continue the Bible study with. Later, we learned that one of the men we had discipled decided to get baptised and all of them stayed connected with the missionary we had introduced them to. I could see that even in the same circumstances, our friends had new hope and refreshed joy because they had a better understanding of Jesus and His love and purpose for them!
