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 topics such 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 will be required to complete a Legacy Project which they choose and submit to be approved by the Campus Leadership Team. Their Legacy Project will be a special task they come up with and take on in their personal area of gifting with the goal of making an improvement which leaves the Base better than when they first arrived. Upon completion of their Legacy Project, the Campus Leadership Team will grade them based on their self-leadership/initiative, plan development and implementation, and excellence of the completed product.

Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with an 11-13 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 Backpacker DTS, Frontier-focused DTS, Winter Sports DTS, etc. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.
