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

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

Grow closer to God with other like minded athletes from around the world. Sports DTS will surround you with those who desire to serve God while using sports. Hone your skills and allow God to increase your influence through your passions as you submit them to His coaching.

Get hands-on experience in the thriving ministry of Youth Street. The vision of Youth Street is a community development initiative which reaches out to the 10 to 17 year olds in the city with sports, performing arts, skateboarding, surfing, and scooting. Develop your skills in mentoring Australian young people and be amazed at how deeply you can connect with young locals in just 12 weeks.

Sports Theme Features

Sports Evangelism:

Our centre here in Newcastle loves evangelism. We believe it’s very important for everyone to know how to share their faith and the Sports DTS gives opportunity to do so through sports. Once a week we will be playing soccer in the community with locals. On outreach, every team will be using various sports to connect with the different people groups. This will open the door to build relationship and share the gospel.

Casual Sports:

Our centre is only ten minutes from gorgeous beaches which means it’s a perfect places for beach runs, swims, volleyball and soccer! There are also several parks and fields which will provide lots of opportunities to play sport as a school and meet new people.

You will embark on a cross-cultural sports adventure of a lifetime! Be a part of using your passion for sport to break through barriers of age, language, culture and religion. As a result see doors open for the gospel to go into the nations.

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!
