DTS - October 2020

Do you want to set apart 5 months to grow in your relationship with God? Do you want to meet likeminded people and make new friends? Do you want to learn about missions and your identity and calling? Come join us!

We are running our second Discipleship Training School and YOU can be a part of it!

October 4, 2020 - February 20, 2021

We believe the beauty of God's creation all around us is an invitation to draw closer to the Creator. This is a great time to set apart 5 months to know your Creator and the calling He has for you! Come join us on this epic adventure.

Because this will be just our second DTS ever you get to be a part of the history that is being written. We are looking for people whose hunger to make a difference is greater than their need for comfort. We are accepting applications for students who want to be a part of our pioneering story, who are ready to get off the beaten path and jump into a life of adventure with Jesus! We believe that together we can shape the course of history when we walk out a life in obedience to God!

"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." -- Ephesians 3:17-19

We are passionate about mobilising and equipping young people for missions and can’t wait to see our community of young missionaries grow in size and impact! You will be part of taking this huge new step for us as a pioneering base. Come join us for the Fall DTS 2020.

This YWAM Discipleship Training School is a training program that will challenge you in the way you see God, the way you see yourself, the world around us and the message you carry inside of you that this world needs to hear. We are committed to seeing our staff and students launched into the calling that God has for each of us individually, but also corporately. Growth happens in the context of community and we want to be that community that passionately pursues life with Jesus, the place where life and growth happens!

During the Lecture Phase of this DTS we will take time to learn and grow around 4 big questions: Who is God; who are we in God’s eyes; what is the good news to the world around us; how do we communicate the good news of Jesus to the world around us?

After DTS you have the opportunity to take more courses in YWAM’s University of the Nations or consider joining staff with our team in Italy, or anywhere in YWAM worldwide. This could be your first step into a life of missions; a life of adventure with Jesus!

Training Phase

In the training phase we will have classroom times, small groups, one-on-ones, but lots of times of learning through meal times, fun activities and so much more. Some of the topics for the DTS are:

  • Nature & Character of God
  • Father Heart of God
  • Lordship of Jesus
  • Person & Work of Holy Spirit
  • Evangelism & Missions
  • Calling & Destiny
  • And much more…

Outreach Phase

We will send out one or more outreach teams for an 8-week mission trip to a nation that is still to be decided. We feel that God is calling us to be strategic about where we will be sending our outreach teams and we want to build long term relationships. Also we believe we are called to go where others may not be going yet. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it!

Debrief & Re-entry

After the outreach there will be 1 week of debrief to help you get everything out of this time that God is wanting to teach you. Then we will have one more week of lectures to help prepare you for your next step and to live the most fruitful life you can live wherever God is calling you next.

This DTS is run by YWAM Trentino. We are a pioneering team in Italy and we are passionate to see Italy reached with the Gospel and to see a new movement of young missionaries going from Italy into the nations. Our base is beautifully located just North of Lake Garda, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean climate and the Italian food and culture. We’d have lots of opportunities to enjoy the beauty of this land. Some of us love going on hikes, ski trips, rock climbing and all kinds of other activities to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. But don’t just come because you’re hungry for Pizza. Come join us because of your hunger for God!

We’re excited to jump into this new adventure together!
