Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with a 12-week lecture/teaching phase followed by an 8 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.

Foundations for Intercultural Studies ( HMT 271 )

In a multicultural classroom students will explore a biblical perspective of culture and cultural identity. Attention will be given to the diversity of communication styles, values and world views, including the songs, the stories, the history and the dreams of each culture. Awareness of one's own culture and the culture of others are major goals of this course. Particular attention will be given to intercultural relationships and the building of bridges of reconciliation to people and cultures offended by other people groups as well as to language acquisition skills. Another main theme of the course is planting of Disciple Making Movements in Muslim cultures particularly in North Africa and Europe. Note: Students who have completed CHR 235 or HMT 231 may not take this course for credit.

The training emphasizes the correlation between fruitful evangelism and deepening a relationship with God in worship, discovering His plan in intercession, and reinforcing His will in spiritual warfare.
