The Discipleship Training School begins with 12 weeks of actively encountering God personally. Each week we have a different speaker from around the world come to our base in Biarritz and bring in-depth teaching on topics such as Hearing the Voice of God, Character and Nature of God, Lordship of Christ, and Evangelism. During the lecture phase, we also take part in times of prayer, worship, individual mentorship, and serving the community that we are apart of.
While the main focus of the lecture phase is pursuing our relationship with God, much time will be spent growing in & enjoying Football. We hope to build our skills together through training while gaining a greater understanding of God’s vision for sport and mission.
The second half of the school is where we put all we have experienced with God into practice. For 11 weeks, we will seek to impact urban areas through representing and imparting the culture of the Kingdom of God. We will take to the streets and create an atmosphere where God’s values are displayed in and through our lives, on and off the court.
While using football as our basis of interaction, we have a platform to share the gospel.
Although we have a focus for large urban areas within our continent, the impact and importance of football is not exclusive to Europe, which is why the outreach phase may also reach out to North and West Africa and/or the Middle East.
