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. Students are given 'real world' application both during the lecture phase as they step into leadership roles and responsibilities of DTS Staffing, and also during the outreach as they help plan and staff the DTS outreach.

Communication & Culture I ( HMT 243 )

The Communication and Culture Course is designed to equip non-native English speakers with a heart for missions by increasing their English communication skills in all areas while learning about different cultures. Classroom instruction utilizes interactive methods of learning that are fun and effective.

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 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 DTSes: In some locations the DTS is offered with a particular focus, such as the Crossroads DTS, Africa Adventure DTS, Frontiers DTS, Family DTS, etc. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of both Lecture and Outreach phases (DSP 211/212).
