Jesus at work in your city or subculture… Movements of God, people who start following Him… Europe needs Jesus. Now. The Movement Starters DTS helps you to get actively involved in a movement of God wherever you live.
During a DTS you will learn to hear God’s voice and deepen your relationship with Him. Speakers from all over the world will encourage you to follow Jesus. You are part of an international community with corporate intercession and worship times.
The Movement Starters DTS is specially designed to train you to start a movement of God. Besides the regular DTS content you will also learn how to win people for Jesus and train them to be radical followers, who at their turn will start making followers as well. This is the start of a movement of God, meant to change villages, cities and nations. You don’t need to be an evangelist for this: passion for Jesus and His gospel are sufficient.
The outreach is an essential practical experience. After the lecture phase you will cooperate with God and local Christians to help unleash a movement of God. The outreach will focus on Europe.
AFTER THIS DTS
After the DTS you could join a network, that supports you to make disciples wherever you live, study and/or work.
Missions anno NOW is where you are!
p.s. this DTS is very much suited for youth workers or missional workers inside and outside churches, who desire to see people both inside and outside the church become radical followers of Jesus.
The Movement Starters DTS runs together with the Classic DTS. We will often have class together. Every week a different teacher will teach about a subject, such as: Father heart of God, Identity, Missions, Evangelism, The Cross, etc. Besides that you’ll get your own mentor, who will support you during your DTS.
In some specific weeks of lecture we will look closer at topics like discipling new believers, disciple making movements, pioneering, etc.
During the lecture phase we will take a closer look at some already running movements of God. You will also get time to work on a plan of action you can use once you’re home.
These first few months of lectures are building a firm foundation in your life, necessary to launch you as a Holy Spirit driven Movement Starter.
The students come from both an international as well as a national background. During DTS we’ll have a live & learn environment. This means that we live together at our location ‘Licht in ‘t Duuster’.
After the lecture phase we will go on outreach for about 9 weeks. During this time we will discover how to start a movement of God in the specific culture. Key ingredients will be evangelism, discipleship, training believers and pioneering.
The purpose is to leave behind a starting movement of disciples, who at their turn are making disciples of non-Christians. That’s why we will be working together with local Christians, who can keep on leading the movement.
After this DTS
We want to help you to start of movement of God right where you live. Not only during lecture phase and outreach, but also when you are back home.
That’s why we offer you the possibility to join our network. Through this network you will:
- receive practical coaching
- receive lectures from experienced people
- be encouraged to hear testimonies of people who are doing the same things
- be able to share experiences with others
