Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with a 11-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.

Ministry Development Seminar ( CHR 147 )

Our Ministry Development Seminar is named: Foundataional Leadership Course (FLC) and is based on going one step further. We are raising up leaders who are discovering and developing their gifts and have a passion to see disciple makers. We will be infusing the DNA of YWAM at large as well as the history and background of who we are as YWAM Asheville. In actuality, this school will give students the foundations for becoming leaders at YWAM Asheville and will be an opportunity to let God form and mold their purpose and vision statement. FLC will challenge them to live a life of discipleship consistently within community.

Missions Seminar ( CHR 135 )

This 2 week seminar is offered in conjunction with the Ministry of Development Seminar (CHR 147). This seminar was created to motivate and mobilize people to work for the purpose of transforming the least-reached communities of the world, and to place workers in church planting, strategic coordinator or administrative roles. Another goal of this seminar is to assist participants in developing a clear focus and plan for getting involved in fulfilling the Great Commission and in seeing people groups and nations transformed. This seminar provides the opportunity for students to explore and discover biblical solutions to major social issues in urban centres, such as prostitution, gender identity issues, street children, crime, and various forms of abuse. Biblical principles for spiritual warfare and intercession, as well as training in spiritual mapping; equip the student for practical ministry. This is a two-week programme drawing from the concepts taught in the School of Strategic Missions (see CHR 235, Strategic emphasis). The biblical and strategic foundations for missions used throughout human history are key elements in the seminar. It examines issues of globalization and how to strategically reach the unreached, while also helping participants in planning their involvement in strategic mission endeavors.
