Dedicated to presenting Jesus personally to this generation, to mobilizing
as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and
equipping of believers for their part in fulfilling the Great Commission.
As citizens of God's kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and
obey our Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present
the whole gospel for the whole person throughout the whole world.
We of Youth With A Mission believe that the Bible
is God's inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ
is God's son; that people are created in God's image; that He created
us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ; that although all people
have sinned and come short of God's glory, God has made salvation
possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus
Christ; that repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses
to God's initiative of grace towards us; that God desires all people
to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth; and that the
Holy Spirit's power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment
of Christ's last commandment, "...Go ye into all the world and
preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).
Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) aim to prepare
messengers of the gospel, helping students to know God in depth. The
goal is to form Christian character and establish Biblical relationships
while developing a daily walk with God. This intensive Christian training
course begins with an 11 or 12 week classroom phase followed by a
typically 12 week outreach.
The DTS is designed to encourage students to develop
in personal character, to cultivate a living relationship with God,
and to identify their unique individual gifts and callings in God.
Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases
throughout these courses, preparing the students to reach current
and future generations and answer the call to "Go into all the
world and make disciples of all nations" Matthew 28:19.
