We are happy to say that the DTS will continue despite COVID-19!

We live in a world where so many people are unseen. Think of people in the slums, prostitution, the elderly, addicts, disabled people, people in need, etc.
How does Jesus teach us to love our neighbours as ourselves? How can we see through His eyes? And learn to see the people who are ‘’normally’’ unseen by others?
When we read the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 23-37), Jesus teaches us to look after our neighbour. Jesus is our great example and shows us how He sees others in so many Bible stories.
How can we make a difference by seeing the unseen?! Do you want to change people’s lives, together with God? Do you love Jesus and do you enjoy adventure? Are you ready to go? Ready to spread the good news? Then the ‘Mercy & Justice DTS’ (Discipleship Training School) is something for you!

The Discipleship Training School (YWAM-DTS) is a six-month training experience with the central purpose of knowing God and making Him known. It’s an intense, full-time training broken down into two parts, the lecture and outreach phase. It is your first step into missions.

The Lecture Phase

In the first three months you will be inspired and challenged by different speakers from around the world. You will receive different lectures each week about topics such as; Nature and Character of God, Discipleship, spiritual warfare, Holy Spirit, missions and much more! As a DTS we also focus on the intimacy with God, because without Him we cannot bear fruit! Your accommodation will be on the Veluwe, a beautiful forest area in the heart of the Netherlands. You will become part of our community who has a desire to live for God!

    Outreach Phase

    In the lecture phase you will also be prepared for outreach, the second part of the DTS. During the outreach you will have the opportunity to share about God with people in a country where you have probably never been before. On outreach we will also focus on “Seeing the Unseen” by looking together how we can reach out to the people there. We will reach out to those who have never heard of Jesus. Are you ready for adventure? Are you ready to go? To share the good news?

    “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”  The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10:36-37)

    Testimonies

    • Outreach: Community development

      I was struggling for a long time with the injustice on earth and which part God takes in it. During the DTS I got a new perspective of God’s goodness and his heart for the people. I didn’t get the answers to all my questions, but I got even more: Gods plan for my life and how he wants to use me in and for this world.

      On my DTS I experienced what God will do, in your darkest moments, when you trust in Him and allow Him to be in complete control. Run to Him always! He’ll be there waiting.

      After I’ve seen heart breaking poverty in Tanzania, Uganda and South Africa before, God confirmed several times during my DTS that He wants to use me to fight injustice. When I was younger I had no dreams. Now God has given me a dream and the vision to fight injustice in the clothing industry. Fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Proverbs 31:8,9

      ”God wants warriors for his kingdom to fight injustice. The Mercy & Justice DTS is a good training school to learn to fight for justice!”
