Join us in Australia for a Trailblazers Discipleship Training School (DTS)!

Are you an adventurer? Do you love the outdoors and hiking through challenging locations? Take that heart of the pioneer and do it with God on the Trailblazers DTS!

God’s hope is for every tribe, every nation, people and language to stand before the throne and Jesus in Heaven. You can be a part of making that a reality as you partner with Him in the Great Commission. The Trailblazers DTS will focus on taking the Kingdom of God to remote areas. The lecture phase will challenge your thinking and let God teach you more about His character. The Trailblazers DTS will help make your faith a reality!

Get hands-on experience in the thriving ministry of Youth Street. Develop your skills in reaching Australian young people, mentor Christians from various walks and be amazed at how deeply you can connect with young locals in just 12 weeks during your lecture phase.

Each DTS is an all-inclusive dynamic Christian training experience! Make deep friendships as you walk alongside people from around the world. Experience God, life & learning together!

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:
  • Hearing God’s Voice
  • Character & Nature of God
  • Building and Maintaining Godly Relationships
  • Fatherheart of God

As part of the Trailblazers DTS, you’ll join the January Sports, Surf & Skate, Trailblazers and Summer Classic 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 way of gathering similar individuals without taking priority over the core purpose of the DTS. Additionally, 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

One of the distinctions of the Trailblazers DTS is that our teams will travel to hard to reach people groups! Trek off the beaten path to share the love of God with villagers and isolated communities!

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:

Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Cambodia, Japan, Germany, Spain, Mexico, South Africa, Indonesia, Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand & around Australia.
