Offered in: Norwegian, English

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with an 12-week lecture phase followed by an 10 week practical field assignment. It is a prerequisite for all other courses in the University of the Nations, and also serves to orient and prepare all new Youth With A Mission (YWAM) staff. The DTS is designed to encourage students in personal character development, cultivating their relationship with God and identifying their unique gifts and callings. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout the course, preparing the students to evangelize and disciple current and future generations, answering the call to Go into all the world and teach (make disciples of) all nations. (Matthew 28:19). The curriculum is in the following six major categories: God's nature and character; God's intention for individuals, peoples and nations; seeing all of life from God's perspective; redemption, sin, and the Cross; God's family - the Church; God's world - His call and commission; the ministries of YWAM. This DTS offeres a particular focus on Backpacking and is called Backpack DTS. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.
