Join us in Australia for a Music & Arts Discipleship Training School (DTS)!
Are you wired to express yourself creatively to the world around you? Whether your passion is music, fine arts or dance the Music & Arts DTS is for you!
This 6-month course is a full-time, unique, live/learn community experience. It consists of two parts: lecture phase and outreach phase. The lecture phase will offer you a time of deep revelation as well as liberating personal application. Encounter God like never before as you hear from seasoned speakers who live out the principles they teach. The outreach phase will take you to places you have only dreamed about as you take the Gospel into the nations! Grow in confidence as you share your testimony from small to large groups in cross-cultural settings.
Example core curriculum topics include:
- Recognising God’s Voice
- Character & Nature of God
- Building and Maintaining Godly Relationships
- Sharing your Faith
- Missionary Lifestyle
As part of the Music & Arts DTS elective, you’ll join the Creative Theme. The Creative Theme in July joins the Music, Arts, Media and Barista electives in one DTS lecture phase. Each DTS will have a coordinator gathering students around that elective. This may come in forms such as small group activities, excursions, events, or guest speakers.
While you’ll have specific times for your DTS elective, this will not occur every week. It is important to see electives as a point of gathering similar individuals without taking priority over the core purpose of the DTS. However, we cannot guarantee that each DTS elective will have a major representation on the outreach phase. Our hope is to look for how we can incorporate the elective on outreach but factors outside our control such as culture, event coordination, and ministry contact preferences may affect what is possible.
An elective is defined by:
- Gathering similar individuals.
- A leader with an affinity or passion for that elective (but not required).
- Low level, structured inclusion during lecture phase.
- Outreach inclusion of the elective where culturally possible and appropriate.
Example “Music & Arts” sessions include:
- Using your unique creativity for effective evangelism
- Being a Godly influence in the Arts & Entertainment Industry
- Developing a deeper understanding of God the Creator
Step out in faith and take ground for the Kingdom of God as you communicate with creativity and passion. Develop a message of your own as you learn how to creatively express the gifts that God has given you to bring hope to the hopeless. Use your gift to cross the many barriers that can get in the way of effectively making God known.
The outreach phase is your opportunity to travel to a foreign culture, bringing the hope of Christ to the nations. The Great Commission to “go into all the world & make disciples” will be pumping through your veins as you jump into this cross-cultural journey to make God known.
Outreach will take you to the places you have only ever dreamed about! Grow in confidence as you share your testimony to large audiences. Whether you are called to long-term or short-term missions, the benefit of going to a cross-cultural location and seeing the needs of that location and then being part of the solution is life changing!
Each DTS sends teams to unique locations. Here are a few places we have gone:
