Sweden Transformed, The World Transformed
DTS stands for Discipleship Training School. It's a 5-6 month program which gives you the chance to grow in your relationship with God. The first three months is called lecture phase, this consists of different classes each week that focus on different aspects of your faith. The next 2 months of the DTS is the outreach phase. In the outreach phase we'll send you out with a team to a certain part of the world with the Goal to make God known.
We are called to be salt and light in the world, to be an impact in people's lives, situations and nations. Gods heart is for every person on the earth to know Him and live with Him forever. Do you want to be part of seeing this happen?
During the DTS you will get to know God in a deep and personal way, find your identity in Him and be equipped in making Him known. During the lecture phase we will have a different topic each week, these topics are for example:
The Bible, Missions, Hearing God's Voice, Father Heart of God, Inner Healing, Biblical Worldview and Calling. A big part of your DTS experience is living together with other people and doing life together. Every week we will also have practical work, book reading, discipleship, evangelism and journaling. The lecture phase is a time for you to dive deep into your relationship with God and learn a lot, through the teachings and life in the DTS. We have a big focus on discipleship, so you will have someone that walks with you and mentors you in this time.
After finishing the lecture phase it's time to go on outreach! The outreach is 2 months long and the focus is to share Gods love and share the good news with the people we meet. This can be done in different ways; children's ministry, mercy ministry, sports, street evangelism, serving practically, going to youth events and much more. The idea is that you can put into practice what you have received in the lecture phase.
As a base we have three focus areas: Europe, Latin America and The Middle East, but we have done outreaches to other places in the world as well. For each DTS we pray and seek God's guidance in where to go!
After the outreach we travel back to Sweden and finish up the DTS with some teaching and the graduation, celebrating what God has done in this time!
When YWAM started, our founder Loren Cunningham had a vision of young people going over the continents as waves sharing the love of God. The waves are still going out, are you part of the next one?
