SCHOOLS RUN AT THIS LOCATION

Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with an 11 or 12-week lecture/teaching phase followed by an 8-12 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. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.

School of Ministry Development (SOMD) ( CHR 241 )

In the School of Ministry Development (SOMD), we seek to help students continue in the discipleship process and teach a variety of ministry skill-sets such as discipling others in a DTS or church setting, to learn how to help people walk through inner healing, inductive Bible study, coaching, pioneering and leadership, children and youth ministry, community development, basic first aid principles, and evangelism. During the outreach weeks, our goal is that the students gain hands-on experience in leading and ministering in these venues as they participate in running youth camps, do evangelism, and work towards various community development projects. Our heart and passion in developing the School of Ministry Development is we want to provide more discipleship and training for those who are going to take the next step into active leadership and ministry, transitioning from receiving to giving. Our prayer and dream is that the student can grow in their relationship with God and ability to minister to others out of this school. Specifically we hope to prepare students to work in community development, with DTS's, Children's ministry, have practical leadership skills developed to impact Guyana and the nations where they are called.
