What is a DTS?
The Discipleship Training School is a five month, life-changing, program designed to help you “Know God and make Him known”. It is a time for you to seek God’s face, hear His voice and discover who God made you to be. Putting aside all the distractions of life you can focus on Him and follow His command to make disciples of every people group on earth (Matt 28:19). It’s a time to step out of your comfort zone and give God your whole heart and your whole life. DTS will open your eyes to God’s heart for a hurting world and see Him use you to change it.
Abolitionist DTS Purpose Statement
The Abolitionist DTS’s purpose is to engage, disciple, and send out ministers of the gospel both locally and internationally to those who are enslaved physically and spiritually knowing that only God’s love can truly set them free.
The first 12 weeks you will join together with others from all over the world who are passionately seeking God’s heart. Our guest speakers come from dynamic ministries all over the world to share on topics such as: The Abolitionist Movement, Hearing God’s voice, The Father Heart of God, Evangelism, Spiritual Warfare, and Biblical Worldview. Outreaches will emphasize practical ways of stopping human trafficking in Las Vegas and abroad. We will also take a couple road trips including going to Tijuana, Mexico which is also one of the hubs for victims crossing into the US. The Abolitionist DTS is assisted by the staff of the Butterfly Effect, an anti-human trafficking ministry that is currently being pioneered here at YWAM Las Vegas.
The next 8 weeks of the Abolitionist DTS will be spent in two outreach nations. Previous schools have gone to Thailand/ Cambodia, India/Nepal, and Greece/Nepal. In teams and in partnership with local ministries you will minister in a variety of ways including evangelism, awareness campaigns, working with children of prostitutes, work projects, teaching, worship and prayer, and other creative means of combating human trafficking.
