In the DTS lecture phase, your focus will be on knowing God, His Word, and His kingdom. There will be the opportunity to seek transformation, a renewed mind, and personal growth. You’ll also get to learn not only from teachers, but also from community living and practical training.
The lecture phase lasts around eleven to twelve weeks. You will have the opportunity to receive teaching from speakers and missionaries. Our class times are interactive and challenging, focusing on real-life applications. Our goal is for the truth to sink deep into our hearts, changing us from the inside out. Below are some of the many topics that will be taught during the eleven to twelve weeks.
Accountability is crucial to discipleship, so you’ll meet twice a week with four to seven people of your same gender. You’ll process what God’s doing, pray for one another, and spur each other on in living out what you’re learning. The YWAM staff who’s leading your small group will help you get all you can out of DTS, meeting with you one-on-one every week to listen, encourage, and pray for you.
Most people describe YWAM Louisville as a family, and that’s exactly what God has called us to be: we’re not just on mission, we’re on mission together. If you’re like most DTS students, you’ll forge life-long friendships here.
Here’s how that plays out: we work together – everyone helps out with things like cleaning, yard work, or meal preparation. We play together in our free time, whether it’s throwing a frisbee, exploring the city, playing a card game, or chatting over coffee. We live together family-style in a few different homes (guys and girls are separate). And we grow together, surrounded by people with the same passion to know God and make Him known.
You have the choice to add on an elective to your DTS. Each week time is set aside for electives which focus on a particular type of interest or passion. During the elective time you will learn to use your skills, gifts and passions to serve God with relation to that elective's focus.
Each DTS elective is run during certain times of the year and each have an extra cost associated with it.
