Like all its counterparts, the Youth Ministries DTS begins with a three-month lecture phase, where you will encounter God in a deeper and more intimate way. You will receive many revelations during these times, not only about God, but about who you are, and what it means to be a child of God, where you will be challenged with personal application of these revelations.
What happens in the classroom?
During your time in the classroom, you will gain a biblical worldview through teachings by dynamic and experienced speakers and teachers. They will speak on topics such as hearing the voice of God, the character and nature of God, spiritual warfare, the Holy Spirit, and much more. Your week will not only be in the classroom, as you will be participating in worship and intercession times, a personal one-on-one discipleship time, weekly local outreaches, and have many fun adventures around the city of Melbourne!
Introduction to Youth Ministry
Unlike its counterparts, this DTS has a focus on Youth Ministries, specifically on mobilizing young people for the mission field. During the lecture phase, you will also learn the basics of working with youth. You will hear from people who are currently working in this field or have a wealth of experience in this area. You will walk away from this DTS with understanding God’s heart for young people, why young people matter, how to present the gospel to a teenager, as well as how to run youth camps!
The YMDTS will gear your outreach towards primarily working with young people, whether it’s after-school programs, school seminars, or even running a camp, you will be challenged to step outside your comfort zone to represent Christ. We will be partnering with other Ywam bases and long-term missionaries who have invested in the location, by serving the ministries they have planted, as well being a blessing to those that went before us. This is the heart of the outreach: To preach the gospel of Christ to people who need it.
