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 take a couple road trips to cities known for trafficking including going to Tijuana, Mexico a major hub for victims crossing into the US. The Abolitionist DTS is assisted by the staff of the Butterfly Effect, an anti-human trafficking ministry currently being pioneered here at YWAM Las Vegas.
The next 8 weeks of the Abolitionist DTS will be split between two outreach nations. Previous schools have gone to Thailand/ Cambodia, India/Nepal, and Greece/Nepal. Working with local partners you will minister in a variety of ways including evangelism, awareness campaigns, working with children of prostitutes, teaching, worship and prayer, and other creative means of combating human trafficking.
