Jesus Never Gives Up!
The Music Discipleship Training School (DTS) is all about getting to know God, finding your calling, building character, and learning to commit. We spend much of our time in the classroom getting to know God and his various methods of action. We pray multiple times a day to find where The Lord is leading us. Weekly homework and a tight schedule teach us commitment, and work duties and community life serve to build up our character and humility.
One of the first things many people notice when they walk into a Youth With a Mission (YWAM) base is that we love to pray. We pray before, after, and during nearly every activity. It is how we find what God wants us to do. God will tell us what books of the Bible to read, what actions to take, which people to speak to, and what to do with our lives. We are taught to seek affirmation on God’s voice and act immediately, and in doing so, our actions always have effects.
Music DTS stands out because there is a band experience. Our school is split into several different band groups. At the end of Week 8, all of the bands come together for one big performance. For many of us, it is our first time on a stage. Our time spent with the band, not only develops our ability to cooperate, but also provides an experience that many of us may never have had before.
We were taught that it is good to organize time for evangelism, but that is not where we should stop.
On the topic of Evangelism, we were taught that Jesus doesn’t quit on people. In the same way, we must not give up the evangelistic fight for the Kingdom! As a class, we had a day of application where we went out into the city of Perth and talked to the people about their salvation. We were taught that it is good to organize time for evangelism, but that is not where we should stop. God does not just want us to serve Him under an organized timeframe – He wants us to serve Him full time. We were also taught that not everybody is going to come to Jesus the first time they are evangelized to. In fact, not everybody will even give the gospel message a second thought. All the same, we must not be afraid of rejection. If we do not at least try talking to those who have not known Jesus, how can they ever come to know Him?
Music DTS is a solid discipleship training experience with musical flair.
