Certificate III in Discipleship (10473 NAT)
There are no prerequisites to join this DTS.
Lecture phase will include 12 weeks of teaching, application times, and one-on-one discipleship. You’ll learn more about who God is and go deeper in your personal relationship with Him. As you apply God’s truth in your own life, you’ll be equipped to reach youth who have been affected by a lack of opportunity, such as being orphaned, living on the streets, coming from broken homes, or who have had to flee their home country as refugees.
Engage with issues of injustice, and learn how to practically come alongside young people who are overlooked through weekly workshops. Topics will include God’s justice, protective factors, processing trauma, advocacy, and engaging youth through meaningful activity such as sports, art therapy, and education.
The call to discipleship is the opportunity for change. Alongside your own personal time with God, you’ll be championed by staff committed to walking with you. You’ll meet regularly to personally process what God is saying and doing in your life.
Be part of a missions community that’s committed to loving God and making Him known together. You’ll learn God’s ways in team work, relationships, worship and intercession while meeting people from all over the world!
As you strengthen your own relationship with God, be empowered to minister to the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of youth on the edges of society. Outreach may take you to work regionally amongst Aboriginal Australian youth in Western Australia, or internationally, coming alongside refugees or urban street youth.
At the heart of outreach is reaching others with a message of hope through knowing Jesus. You will engage with people from all walks of life through mercy ministry, teaching, and evangelism.
Where God’s character has been misrepresented, you’ll have opportunity to re-present Him to others. Speak out of your own experience, introducing God to those who don’t know Him as a good Father!
Apply skills practiced on lecture phase in real-life situations. Engage young people in processing through trauma using art therapy, and meaningful activity, such as sport, to build resilience.
Just as a catalyst increases the rate of a reaction, you’ll partner with existing organisations and churches in the field to strengthen that which exists and pioneer what is needed.
