Discipleship Training School ( 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. Focused DTS’s: In some locations the DTS is offered with a particular focus, such as the Crossroads DTS (YWAM CDTS), Operation Year DTS, University DTS, Sports DTS, Arts DTS, etc. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.

Foundations of Trauma Healing ( WPC 125 )

The Foundations of Trauma Healing seminar is designed to help lead and better relate to those dealing with trauma. Participants will gain understanding of the definition of trauma and its many causes, and understand how a traumatized person often feels and behaves towards others. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how God thinks, feels and responds to human suffering from a Biblical narrative.

Word By Heart - Genesis to Revelation ( CHR 207 )

In this course students will discuss, debate and meditate on weekly Scriptures using the Inductive Bible Study method, in order to find deeper meaning and understanding of the Bible as a whole, and come to the realization of how the overlying message throughout the scriptures ultimately leads to Jesus. They will also learn storytelling skills and practice natural memory techniques, by creating imaginary memories to see what the eyewitnesses saw and say what they meant, developing honest, technique-free communication that compels audience attention and understanding of the scriptures. This process will result in an experience so deep that students can then re-tell stories from different passages throughout the Bible, word for word in their native language—as if they were an actual eyewitness to the event. In doing this, students will receive new revelations from the Scriptures, and are transformed to be more like Jesus. In this way, Word By Heart equips people to work with Oral Bible Translation projects, as well as contributes to the End Bible Poverty Now movement.
