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 for Counseling Ministry ( WPC 211 )

The vision the FCM and of our college serves the overall vision of YWAM, which can be summarized as: knowing God and Making Him known. The University of the Nations also describes the vision as discipling the nations; that is, extending the Kingdom of God into every people group, every nation, every culture and every domain of society by proclamation, mentoring and service. Our college vision fits into this overall vision: equipping and releasing people to disciple the nations. The tools and understanding of counselling and health care are the means through which we contribute to that vision. The name of this school embodies that vision. “Foundations” – the school is intended to provide the Biblical foundations upon which Christian counselling ministry can be built. As such it reflects the overall heart of the college and the foundations stones God has built into the college. Anyone seeking to obtain a counselling degree in the U of N must do this course so that those foundations are set in place. “For” – these are not just foundations ‘of’ knowledge. These are not just foundations ‘of’ knowing God, and the healing power of relationship with Him, in our own heart. These are ‘for’ a purpose and that purpose is to reach out to others like ourselves, who need God to be active in their lives, and introduce them to that same healing relationship. The purpose is that our students will move from personal transformation into active involvement in bringing transformation to others. The core purpose of any Christian missionary organisation is to share the gospel with people (individuals, families, communities and nations) who do not know God so that they can come to know Him and then be transformed through discipleship. This is also the purpose of the FCM. “Counselling” – is the broad set of tools and means that we prepare our students to use when they are involved in discipling the nations. The purpose of the FCM is to equip them with those tools so that they can be used. They may or may not be called a ‘counselor’ but they will use the understanding, skills and methods of counselling as they share the gospel and disciple people. “Ministry” – this is the action word. Our desire is that our students are equipped for, called into and become active in ministry, applying what they have learned to extend the Kingdom of God. Our vision is to begin equipping people in the Christian counselling arena by introducing them to a biblical counselling philosophy, imparting basic counselling skills, and walking with them through their own growth and healing process. In this process, we help our students discover their own vision for how they can take what they gain in our schools and "disciple" their own domain.
