There are no prerequisites to join this DTS.
The Frontline Discipleship Training School is focused on knowing God and making Him known. Helping you to meet God as your loving Father. Encouraging you to explore your passions and talents. Preparing you to live a life that will impact this world with the reality of an adventurous God.
It includes not only classroom lectures, but regular times of worship and prayer, discussion times, one-on-one discipleship, serving, and fun filled community living!
There will also be topics on how to be effective on outreach, workbooks, reports and projects that will stretch our hearts and minds. We will also build a team together by doing physical training and trekking - this also helps prepare us for outreach.
There will be much time and opportunity to spend with God during the Discipleship Training School. You will be coached by staff and teachers in what it means to pursue God with a whole heart as well as receiving practical tips on what works and what doesn't. Many students have grown in their commitment to God during these times.
We as the Frontline DTS love to explore what the Australian landscape has to offer. From swimming at the most iconic beaches to hiking and camping along remote coastal trekking routes in southern Western Australia, we love to be outdoors! A weeks teaching is spent backpacking as preparation for outreach and several other weekends of the school will include adventure, fitness and activities.
We are committed to seeing you grow in your understanding of who God is, to help bring you to your full potential and seeing you continually develop your relationships with God and people. You will meet with a trusted staff member every week who will come alongside you, listen to you, and help you process through any questions or challenges you may face.
On outreach, you get to be part of God's invitation to go with Him into the world and share the Good News (Mark 16:15). And the news is good because we don't just talk, we show people God's love in practical ways, helping to meet both their physical needs (food, clean water, healthcare) and spiritual (Jesus).
You'll get to experience life in a different culture, language, and setting. You'll see how God loves the nations of the earth and what is happening in missions worldwide. You will be able to help deeply impact the lives of individuals that you will come across and see them come alive with the light of Jesus. Remember, transformation starts with the individual.
Every person has the right to hear the life-saving message of Jesus and decide for themselves if they'll believe in Him. Whether they're in a village, the ghetto, a university, or a rehab centre, we'll get to meet them, share with them, pray for them, and let them know God's love.
Show people practical love and care for them by demonstrating many things such as washing hands, teaching people how to construct simple water filters, make oral rehydration solution (this literally saves babies' lives), and testing people's eyesight and giving out glasses. These are just some examples!
One of the biggest needs in the church today is discipleship. Having just completed 12 intense weeks of lecture phase, you will have much to share, and there are many people who are hungry to learn. One of the greatest privileges of outreach is getting to share in churches, the streets, hospitals, people's homes, basically wherever people meet, teaching them to know God more, so they can then share with others!
