Youth With A Mission
DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL
Join us for our new “beyond borders” DTS beginning April 11, 2021!
What is a DTS ?
This is an intense 8 month school that focuses on touching God’s heart for the unreached people groups around the world!
We would love to welcome you!
Are you seeking to grow deeper in your relationship with God? Do you long for unreached people groups to have the opportunity to hear the gospel message? If you have answered yes to either of those questions Beyond Borders DTS is for you.
A DTS (Disciple training school) is a time set apart for God to let Him captivate your heart and to give you a new passion for Him and His kingdom. It is an intensive residential training course that will include the elements of a traditional DTS, 12 weeks of teaching and 12 weeks of outreach. However, we will mix them together over the total length of the school. There will also extra weeks to dig deeper into each topic, while serving the base and the region.
This school will be a bilingual school, learning together in both French and English.
This DTS emphasizes cross-cultural exposure and the heart of God for the nations, especially those who have never heard the Good News. Our goal is to prepare students to answer the call to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations.”
It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.
After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands…Rev 7:9
The times of teaching are what we call the lecture phase, this time will be based in the picturesque town of Saint-Paul- Trois-Châteaux, France.
Each week students will have the opportunity to attend classes touching on a specific spiritual subject. The courses are taught by different speakers from different cultural backgrounds who have both knowledge and experience in their specific field of teaching.
Weekly topics include: Intimacy with God, The Holy Spirit, The Bible, Hearing the Voice of God, the Father’s heart, Mission, Evangelization, Gods Calling, etc.
Lecture phase also includes:
-Intercession times and worship times throughout the week.
-Workshops to prepare for evangelism (preaching, song, mime, dance, puppets, etc.).
-Times of personal study: reading, journaling, research.
-Practical tasks: cleaning/housework, taking part in some practical activities at the YWAM base.
-Personal times (one-on- one) with a staff member or with the speaker of the week.
-Small group to reflect on what God is doing and to learn to minister to each other.
-Personal times with God
The number of students in a DTS varies from 8 to 25 students. As a general rule most of the staff, the speakers and the students live in community sharing meals together and the work duties.
You can find the regular DTS curriculum at www.ywamdtscentre.com
During the DTS outreach phase, you will join with others to take the message and love of God to France and ( or) across the world. You will learn about the diversity of cultures and will participate in God’s purposes for the places you visit. The outreach phase will give you the chance to apply the principles you have learned during your lectures.
You can put all of your new perspective into action by sharing God’s truth in different places.
Your Outreach Location
Our Beyond Borders DTS will have 3 distinct times of outreach, each in different locations. We have a heart to continue to work in France and North Africa, places we have taken teams in the past. We are also looking into the possibility of serving in a refugee camp. As always we continue to seek the Lord for His direction in our preparations.
God is calling this DTS to be a blessing for the nations

What they said !
The DTS has changed many things in my life. First of all, I learnt how to know God and now I have a personal relationship with Him. During this time God has freed me from many wounds that I had received in the past. During this school I really felt the love of God, His joy, I knew that He was with me but most of all I felt accepted. During the training there were many challenges and difficulties (but God was there!) but it was through these tests that I was able to grow both personally and spiritually. Throughout the school I truly felt the love and the faithfulness of God !
Overall DTS changed, challenged and encouraged me greatly in my walk with God. Hearing His voice became normal and regular instead of rare and surprising. God has given me a boldness and fire to share the gospel with people and I am so thankful for His leading and faithfulness, glory be to God!
During my DTS God fully met my expectations. For me it was a great school of trusting God. Developing my trust in God has had an impact on many areas of my life. Of course, it has incredibly changed my relationship with him, but it has also influenced the way that I perceive myself and my relationships with other people. I truly believe that whatever God calls me to, with His help, I will have whatever it takes to accomplish it.
DTS was the best five months of my life. The lovely community lifestyle combined with the beautiful Provence country side made it an incredible place to learn and rest in God.
The DTS in St. Paul was a very special time for me. My relationship with God has deepened through teachings, times of prayer, praise and sharing. I really enjoyed this time apart, right after I graduated. The opportunity to go deeper with God, grow, experience healing and develop wonderful friendships. It was time for me to move forward in my life, in a consecration to God. I particularly liked the place, very quiet and soothing... walks with God were beautiful moments. In YWAM Provence, I felt surrounded, welcomed and accompanied with a lot of love...!
God used this EFD to soften me: He received me in a cocoon full of gentleness and rooted me in His Father's heart; He received me with all my intelligence, my reflection, my reasoning and taught me to seek the voice of the Spirit. He also made me see other facets of His Kingdom and strengthened my motivation to get involved!
I had a thirst to know God, to discern His voice and to learn to walk daily with Him. I was led by Him to this place to find what spoke not to my intellect but my heart. This time of training has literally changed my life: how I see my past, my identity and and my relationship with Him were transformed.
