DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL
What is a DTS?
A five-month program that will change your life.
A Discipleship Training School, or DTS, will help you along your journey of discovering God and discovering yourself. A time of heart transformation, deepening your relationship with the Lord and spreading His love all around the world. A time to know God and to make Him known.
A DTS IS DIVIDED INTO 2 PARTS
Worship & Intercession
Each week, a new speaker will teach in an interactive classroom setting where you get to learn more about God's character and your identity in Him through topics like Biblical Worldview, the Father-Heart of God, and Recognizing God's Voice.
Turning all our attention to the King of Kings and engaging our hearts with His heart is the best way to start any day. Each morning will begin by encountering the presence and love of your Heavenly Father through worship and intercession.
Every week you will meet together in small groups to connect with one another, process what the Lord's been doing in your heart, and to go even deeper with Holy Spirit.
Once a week you will meet with a designated staff member who will walk alongside you, helping you process what God has been revealing to you and helping you to connect on a deeper level.
Local Ministry & Evangelism
You will have weekly opportunities to share God's love and pour into the community surrounding YWAM Muskoka.
The EDGE stream will take place every week giving you the opportunity to experience the great outdoors of beautiful Muskoka. Enjoy activities such as winter camping, ice skating, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, ropes course, etc. (note: all activities are beginner friendly)
(also note: some activities are subject to change based on weather conditions)
Making God Known
Outreach will take you to different cultures, meet new people, and learn how to love them the way God does. You will be able to bring everything you've learned and experienced throughout your training phase to those in need.
There are thousands of people who don't know the love of God yet. Outreach is an opportunity to travel to the least and the last and share God's heart with them. There is no greater calling.
Jesus preached sermons, healed the sick, fed the poor, ate with sinners, discipled people, and showed love to everyone He came in contact with. That's what ministry is. Getting to be the hands and feet of Jesus and doing exactly what He did when He walked the earth.
