What is the Discipleship Training School about? Reflecting the Son

Michael and Stephanie Chesterman are leading the upcoming Discipleship Training School (DTS) at YWAM Muizenberg, which begins June 22nd. Recently, I heard Michael speak about the DTS. I was so moved by his passion for the school as he shared how God will transform the students’ lives and work through them to impact the nations! So if you’re wondering about DTS or doing a DTS at YWAM Muizenberg, here’s a little nugget, from this school’s leaders Michael and Stephanie, of what God has in store for you during the Reflecting the Son DTS!

As Christians, we are called to be ambassadors for Christ. We are to reflect what Christ has done for us and in us to those around us. Christ set an example for the disciples, and so we are to be an example to the world. Paul says that we are to always have a testimony. It is said that actions speak louder than words. Does the way we live our lives give an accurate testimony of what God has done in and for us?

Who Do I Value? How About Those Untrained, Ordinary, or Young?

Recently on a trip to Rwanda, I was reminded of something I love about Youth With A Mission.

I was attending their weekly base worship time when two young Discipleship Training School (DTS, YWAM’s entry level course) students shared a devotional on God.

At first I thought this must be so annoying to their staff to have to sit through these young ladies sharing their basic revelations about God. I imagined how many I would have sat through after twenty-three years in the mission.

But then God reminded me about the gift this is. Youth With a Mission values all people being able to be used by God. We don’t require professional degrees but rather see ordinary people being used by God.

You’re in a Spiritual Crisis? Find Out Why That’s Fantastic News!

Recently I was told, “You have a real gift for facilitating spiritual crisis.” To which I responded, “Uh… errr… thank you?” Luckily my source of flattery was a clinical psychologist, and we were talking about the Six Stages of Faith every human being (including you and I) are currently traversing.

Fun Fact: Spiritual crisis is the marker you may be shifting up a faith level. This is why I don’t flinch at these types of hushed missionary confessions anymore:

“I’ve never doubted my faith before, but now I doubt everything I used to know.”

“I’m critical of everything! I just can’t go to church anymore.”

And…

“Lately, I’m not sure I even believe in God.”

Once upon a time, I’d dig out my apologetics Bible college text book and frantically try to find the answers to fix these troubled folks, to ease their doubts, assure them of what they already know to be true. Today, I just smile and say, “You’re a missionary who doesn’t believe in God? Awesome. God is so excited!”

A recent DTS outreach team headed up to Mozambique and Malawi, along the way they met some incredible people and saw God do many amazing things. These are a few snapshots of the journey and people they met, thanks to Tim Kusel for the great photographs.
