Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

This DTS is a full time, live learn school where it serves to gather and challenge people to listen to and obey God, whilst releasing them to serve through evangelism, intercession and other expressions of God’s heart for the world.  Students are challenged to grow in their relationship with God as they learn from the DTS Curriculum, resulting in Christ like character.  There is personal application of Biblical truth, while being equipped to live and relate to others, both in YWAM and outside of it.  It consists of a 12 week lectures and minimum 11 to 12 weeks practical field assignment, in accordance with UofN DTS Guidelines.

Doula Seminar ( HLC 173 )

This seminar can be adapted for any location where cross-cultural workers would train to serve pregnant women and their families. Childbirth has emotional and social elements; the doula, or birth partner, provides support for the mother as well as the whole family, which can assist the birth attendant/physician in their medical role. This course can equip workers who are already serving in other capacities to reach out to women and their families, providing understanding, comfort, information and support throughout the pregnancy, labor and delivery, and after the birth.

Foundations for Counseling Ministry ( WPC 211 )

In addition, each course may address specific counselling models or tools and specific counselling issues that are considered relevant to a particular target field or ministry.

School of Missions ( CHR 235 )

The School of Missions is an overview of missions with some specific skills training introduced during an initial three-month course and then developed further during the field assignment. Topics include: biblical and historical foundations for missions; the nature of the Church; intercultural communication (principles of and skills for learning another language and culture); missions strategy (evangelism and church planting, church growth, intercession and spiritual warfare, healing, signs and wonders, relief and development); personal and team relationships (the workers relationship with God, interpersonal relationships, leadership and authority, team building and team dynamics, developing and relating with a prayer/financial support team). The School of Missions is offered with a focus on the unreached, unengaged peoples of the world with a particular emphasis on Muslims. The purpose is to train workers for living and ministering among these unreached people groups with church planting as a key strategy in discipling new converts and engaging the different spheres of society to see wholistic transformation in communities and nations. Our hope is on deploying pioneering teams as the basic vehicle for addressing strategic areas of need throughout the world. Strategic missions embraces both short-term and long-term strategies to accomplish all aspects of ministry, including the planting of both local churches and missions structures. The SOSM seeks to equipe individuals and teams to pioneer new ministries in geograpical areas and societal spheres, and to help clarify callings, develop vision and learn how to implement a pioneer project.
