DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL
Formerly the Arise Focus
The Messenger Focus specializes in developing strong leaders with training in missions, preaching and teaching while cultivating a heart that reflects the character of Jesus.
The Messenger (Leadership) Focus is the foundational focus of YWAM KC’s Discipleship Training School. It was birthed out of Isaiah 6:8 where the prophet Isaiah encountered the Lord and cried out, “Here I am… Send me!” His experience with God stirred a desire to be sent out as a messenger, unashamed of His God– and the Messenger focus will train you to be that kind of bold messenger of the gospel.
The Lord took my hesitant 'yes' and recaptured my heart for Him and His people. DTS is a journey that has forever impacted me.Kevin YunJanuary Messenger DTS 2017
The Arise focus helped me hone in on the leadership skills the Lord had already given me. It was a great season of refining that I never expected. I was able to see God move so powerfully with just my simple 'yes' to Him.Tiffany YehJuly Messenger DTS 2016
It impacted me in such a way that truly opened my eyes to see and understand how Jesus lived and loved so well. Not only did I have this revelation, but the track allowed me to live it out & truly grow to be a disciple of Christ.Katie GerardJanuary Messenger DTS 2017
The training phase will be a profound time of encountering God as you are equipped to be a missionary to the nations. Speakers from all over the world will come and bring focused training as we seek the Lord together in community. During these 12 weeks, you will be trained as a messenger to hear God’s voice, proclaim the gospel, start discipleship movements, and engage in strategic missions.
A typical week will include:
Immediately following the training phase, you will use the tools you were equipped with to impact a specific nation for God’s kingdom. Our outreaches have seen thousands come to Christ in countries all over the globe.
Our DTS outreaches work with long-term initiatives and strategies that God has laid on our hearts. We use YWAM KC’s connections to impact these nations. All outreaches have three components: evangelism, practical ministry and partnership with local churches and ministries. Our primary outreach locations are Asia, Africa and Central/South America however, your outreach could be anywhere in the world! Outreaches are announced during the lecture phase.
