Discipleship Bible School ( CHR 205 )

In this course students are equipped with tools for continual development of personal Bible study. This course combines dynamic teaching, small group processing, personal study, one-on-ones and practical application in order to help students develop a modest vocabulary and basic familiarity with the Scriptures as preparation for more advanced courses. Throughout the course students will grow in their understanding of the nature and character of God, how to live in and contribute to community, the importance of covenants, communicate God's redemptive plan, use the Word in a ministry context, and discover the big picture of Bible. A disciplined learning environment helps prepare the student for a lifetime of Bible study. Through the facilitation of small groups and the creation of community the DBS emphasizes on personal discipleship and godly character. Additionally, the school focuses on a variety of Biblical topics building on the foundation established in the Discipleship Training School. This course meets the U of N Core Curriculum requirement for Bible.

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: Gods nature and character; Gods intention for individuals, people groups and nations; seeing all of life from Gods perspective; redemption, sin, and the Cross; Gods family - the Church; Gods world - His call and commission; the ministries of YWAM. DTS at YWAM Boston is offered with two main focuses, frontier missions, and the creative arts. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.
