Using hairdressing skills to restore dignity and value in every individual.
There are millions of refugees in the world – people who have had to flee their homes due to war, famine, or other reasons. It is heart breaking to read the headlines, and yet there is hope! God's heart for refugees is clearly seen in the Bible. He wants to give them comfort and hope for the future – and He is calling us to be part of that!
The Refugee DTS focuses specifically on serving practically and sharing God's love with those who are displaced. Discover your next steps in Him as you are equipped in your own walk with God!
As part of the Hair & Beauty stream you will be able to use these skills to restore dignity and value in situations where they are missing.
Not interested in hair or beauty? That’s fine! Have a look at the Refugee DTS.
The Refugee DTS kicks off with 12 weeks of intensive, focused discipleship. Each week we explore an aspect of following Jesus, from hearing God’s voice, to worship, relationships, missions and more. Something that sets DTS apart is our integrated approach to discipleship – you learn and grow, not just in the classroom, but serving in the community, small group processing and more – learning in real time. You will also develop skills in haircutting, styling, and how to connect with the people you are serving. Through it all, you’ll be surrounded by a community of people actively living out the call of God in Perth and the nations.
You’ll follow it up with 12 weeks of implementing what you’ve learned, as you serve and support refugees. Now, more than ever, those who are displaced need to encounter the hope of Jesus, in word and deed. Whether it’s caring for families in crisis or personally sharing the hope of Christ in evangelism, you and your DTS team will seek out opportunities to reach and serve.
We’ll wrap up with a week back in the YWAM Perth community, sharing all God’s done and getting ready for what He has ahead. DTS opens all kinds of doors for further specialised training, as well as immediate opportunities to serve locally or internationally. Whatever God's next step is for you, DTS can set you up to tackle the challenges with a strong foundation of personal relationship with God.
