What is the Multi-Generational DTS?

This is a school that caters to singles and married couples from all nations and generations ( 18 +) !

We will be a bilingual school working together in French and English.

We are excited to welcome you!

A DTS (Disciple training school) is a time set a part for God to let Him captivate your heart and to give you a new passion for Him and His kingdom. It is an intensive, residential training course which begins with a 12 week lecture phase, followed by a 9 week outreach. DTS emphasizes cross-cultural exposure and global awareness, preparing students to answer the call to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations.”

It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.

“… I no longer call you servants…Instead, I have called you friends,… 16  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—…”

Lecture Phase

The first part of the school, called the lecture phase, lasts 12 weeks and is based in the picturesque town of Saint-Paul- Trois-Châteaux, France.

Each week, students will have the opportunity to attend classes touching on a specific spiritual subject. The courses are taught by different speakers from different cultural backgrounds who have both knowledge and experience in their specific field of teaching.

Weekly topics include:

  • Intimacy with God
  • The Holy Spirit
  • The Bible
  • Hearing the Voice of God
  • The Father’s heart
  • Mission
  • Evangelization
  • God´s Calling

Lecture phase also includes:

  • Intercession times and worship times throughout the week.
  • Workshops to prepare for evangelism (preaching, song, mime, dance, puppets, etc.).
  • Times of personal study: reading, journaling, research.
  • Practical tasks: cleaning/housework, taking part in some practical activities at the YWAM base.
  • Personal times (one-on- one) with a staff member or with the speaker of the week.
  • Small group to reflect on what God is doing and to learn to minister to each other.
  • Personal times with God

The number of students in a DTS varies from 8 to 25 students. As a general rule, most of the staff, the speakers and the students live in community, sharing meals together and the work duties.

Overall DTS changed, challenged and encouraged me greatly in my walk with God. Hearing His voice became normal and regular instead of rare and surprising.

God has given me a boldness and fire to share the gospel with people and I am so thankful for His leading and faithfulness, glory be to God!

Outreach Phase

During the DTS outreach phase, you will join with others to take the message and love of God to France and ( or) across the world. You will learn about the diversity of cultures and will participate in God’s purposes for the places you visit. The outreach phase will give you the chance to apply the principles you learned during your lectures. You can put all of your new perspective into action by sharing God’s truth in different places.

Your Outreach Location

In the past in Saint-Paul, the outreach locations have been Burkina faso, Mali, Mongolia,
France and other countries. The outreach for this 2017-2018 training has not yet been determined. The staff will be praying and discerning where God is calling this specific DTS to minister.
