What is a Discipleship-Training-Seminar (DTS)?

A DTS consists of a 6 days (2 hours each night) spread over 6 weeks course of interactive lectures, study, small groups and outreach, designed to lay a firm foundation in the students life for a fulfilling and fruitful Christian walk and to help prepare them to become involved in leadership in their different spheres of influence.

Discipleship Training Seminar is an exciting time of drawing near to God. It is designed to provide Christians, young and old the opportunity to take 6 days away from the pressures and responsibilities of daily life to focus entirely on Jesus and finding their identity and purpose in life, in order that they may return to live with a sense of who God is and His plan for their lives.

During the course students will be immersed in a schedule that will offer them time alone with God, small group interaction, classroom teachings, study time, fellowship and ministry. Students will also have free time for fellowship, personal study time and the opportunity to let it all soak in.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE DTS

▪   To gather and challenge people to get to know God and become all that they can be.

▪   To inspire and cultivate growth in one’s relationship with God resulting in Christ like character, which is based on a solid Biblical foundation, the work of the Holy Spirit and the personal application of Biblical truth, especially concerning God’s Character, the Cross and empowering Grace.

▪   To sharpen one’s ability to relate to, learn from and work with people, including those of different cultures, personalities and perspectives.

▪   To further equip each one to serve God’s purposes in strengthening a commitment to reach the lost, especially the unreached, to care for the poor, and to influence all areas of society.

▪   To impart vision and purpose in the lives of students.

It would consist of: 

–       Learning and growing together

–       Working in a team

–       Embracing diversity

Subjects focused on are:

▪   The Character & Nature of God

▪   Hearing the voice of God

▪   Evangelism & Missions

▪   Prayer & Intercession

▪   Identity in Christ & Spiritual Warfare

▪   How to read, study & apply the Bible

▪   Father heart of God

The DTS will:

▪   Incorporate Instruction that is highly interactive and makes use of story-telling, one primary way of learning.

▪   Provide different opportunities that instill purpose and destiny to students to counteract the pervasive hopelessness and despair on many, by providing them with an opportunity to contribute their unique gifts and talents to help fulfill the Great Commission.

▪   It allows the participation of students in a DTS-type program, who find it difficult to leave home and family for an extended time.

▪   Throughout the DTS’s we desire to encourage authentic gifts and cultural expressions of the Gospel and Worship

▪   Spiritual growth and preparation to become representatives of Christ in all of lives arenas for the participants
