Discipleship Training School

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Matt 28:19

Discipleship Training School or (DTS) is a 12-16 week missionary training course designed to help make you a true disciple. The first part of the DTS, called the lecture phase, is based on our Nelson campus with weekly lectures on a range of subjects such as, how to hear God’s voice, how to pray and intercede and how to reach others for Christ. See below for more information on the curriculum.

The second part of the course is called the outreach phase where we head out to put into practice what we’ve learned on the lecture phase. Each school’s outreach phase is unique. As we are living in a post pandemic season the outreaches for the September DTS’s will be focused on prayer walking across New Zealand. The goal is simply to share the love of God with people who may have never experienced it.

We really live by the ethos that it’s important to know God but it’s also important to make Him known, and that is the ultimate goal of a DTS. It’s an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life and sets a great foundation for your Christian journey going forward.

* This covers transportation costs and fuel to activities during the Lecture
Phase, such as paddle-boarding, sea kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, swimming etc which are all extremely popular in the region and will be offered on weekends.
