Hello! My name is Kailey Holcombe, I’m from Arizona in the USA, and I’ve been serving with YWAM Sydney Island Breeze for almost 3 years now. I did my Discipleship Training School here at YWAM Sydney Island Breeze in 2013 and it changed my life. I knew that I would never be the same afterwards. I’ve done other second level schools in YWAM and have staffed 3 Discipleship Training School’s. I’m also a part of the Worship and Performing Arts Team.
One of the many lessons I’ve learned staffing Discipleship Training School’s is the ability to be flexible. You have to be able to change plans at the drop of the hat because the Holy Spirit is flowing in the classroom.I learned not to always rely on how things are supposed to look. Don’t get me wrong, I like structure in the class room, but whenever we invite the Holy Spirit into our lectures, He changes things up! It always ends up being exactly what the students need.
Each Discipleship Training School that I have had the privilege to staff has always been a growing experience. I learn so much during the Discipleship Training School.Every student has a unique story with how they have grown in the Lord at the end of the school. I would encourage you, if you haven’t done your Discipleship Training School yet , go for it! It’s an amazing 6 month journey that can change your life if you allow the Lord in to do His work in you.
