The DTS is an entry course required by YWAM if you wish to serve with us long term, but it is also a great course to do even if you are not planning on working with YWAM. It’s a chance to take time out from normal busy life and give God time and space to speak and move, and then to apply it to your life.
LECTURE PHASE: 4 months
Some of the topics we have covered during lecture phase in the past include Prayer and Intercession, True Discipleship, the Father Heart of God, Worship, Missions, Stewardship, Traditional African Worldview, The Holy Spirit, Community Development, and The Family.
There will also be regular work duties, team worship and prayer sessions as well as plenty of social activities.
OUTREACH PHASE: 3 months
Our outreach destinations always include visiting the villages on the Zambezi Delta, but other locations have included the mainly Muslim villages in Northern Mozambique, Malawi and Southern Africa.
Our DTS focus is Frontier Missions - meaning we have a particular inclination towards the unreached or least-reached peoples of Africa.
Accessing good health care in rural Mozambique is not an easy thing to manage. If you’re passionate about making that a thing of the past and giving everyone a chance at health and life then this is the school for you.
With an integrated lecture and outreach phase, learning is ongoing and practical. We link the school with our helicopter outreaches to the remote villages in the Delta and work in conjunction with the local rural hospital and health posts.
As well as teaching the basics of anatomy and health systems, we cover some of the major diseases prevalent in areas like ours and look at practical, realistic ways of treating these sicknesses and educating communities in prevention.
Our students will not only treat and prevent diseases, but also teach about and demonstrate the love of God. We look forward to seeing not just the absence of sickness in a village, but the growth and development of abundant life in Christ.
