SCHOOLS RUN AT THIS LOCATION

Basic Leadership Seminar ( CHR 145 )

This is an in-service programme designed to assist in developing the leadership skills of staff in U of N schools. Students meet several times each week for discussion and instruction on such topics as pastoral skills, spiritual gifts, small group dynamics, basic management principles, and leadership of public meetings and outreaches. In addition each student meets regularly with a mentor for feedback and evaluation. Assignments include reading and reporting on a number of books covering basic leadership issues. This course is designed to help the students to staff a DTS and understand how a dts works. All the students are involved during the 12 week DTS Lecture Phase, in case of not having enough space to add students to the DTS Outreach Staff, we will provide an alternative leadership opportunity to serve our town, local churches and ministries (incl. a shorter international missions trip) for at least 8-14 weeks. We run this course as a one year course as a part of our 3 year Leadership Training Program. Our course goes beyond the time of staffing a DTS, this will make it a stronger course and will improve the qualities of our DTS we run at YWAM Davos. The Students will receive 12 Credits for this course.

Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( 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 "Go into all the world and teach (make disciples of) all nations." (Matthew 28:19). The curriculum is in the following six major categories: 1. nature and character; 2. intention for individuals, peoples and nations; seeing all of life from 3. perspective; redemption, sin, and the Cross; 4. family - the Church; 5. world - His call and commission 6. the ministries of YWAM. In Winter we run a focused DTS for Snowboarders & Freeskiers and during the summer the Bike-Hike-Climb DTS. Our heart is to give our students an environment of love and acceptance to grow and mature in Christ, to reconcile with their past and launch into a future of purpose and hope. We may also run other DTS with a new focus or a classic one. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.

Introductory Leadership Practicum I ( CHR 243 )

An extended practical mentoring experience for potential young leaders, including work in many departments in a YWAM centre, one-on-one sessions with leaders, classroom lectures, small group leadership and organizational training. We would love to see a multiplication happen, that is a pioneering work somewhere else or locally. This will be a highly individualized course we will run with very limited student numbers. Most of the content can be taught locally but we also send the students to specific workshops and gatherings to maintain good relationships and variety of speakers. We run this course as a one year course as part 3 of our 3 year Leadership Training Program.

Introductory Leadership Seminar ( CHR 147 )

This Introductory Leadership Seminar is usually given in conjunction with with the Introductory Leadership School or the School of Ministry Development (CHR 241). It enables students to discover and develop their gifts and talents in leadership roles. Through the classroom sessions, participants discover their spiritual and motivational gifts, and learn about vision development, spiritual leadership and communication skills for leaders.
