Encounter : Discipleship Training School

Encountering God, Impacting Nations

In Exodus 3, Moses encountered God at the burning bush. God revealed Himself to Moses in a powerful way. He shared the love that He had for His people and commissioned Moses to go rescue them.

The heart of this school is to provide an environment for you to encounter God and equip you to discover and pursue God’s purpose for your life.

In the book of Acts, the disciples were sent out in the power of the Holy Spirit to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth. And the Gospel advanced despite persecution. God’s heart is for all people, in all nations, to know Him.

We want to invite you to join us for this exciting time to witness the Great Commission being fulfilled.

The Encounter DTS has a 16-week Lecture Phase (training) and a 12-week Outreach Phase.

The first 12 weeks of the Lecture Phase will be held at The King’s Lodge. We then plan to do a mid-term outreach for about 3 weeks. After this outreach, we will head to YWAM Derby (Derby, England) to do a four-week evangelism seminar so that we may be further equipped to evangelize and serve. Following this seminar, we will move into our final Outreach Phase by spending 9 weeks in the Philippines.

The Lecture Phase

The Lecture Phase is a time of training to be equipped for the final Outreach Phase.

This time of training will consist of teachings given by speakers from all over the world on varying topics to help you grow stronger in your faith in and knowledge of God. 

Some topics that will be covered include: 

  • Hearing God’s voice
  • The Character and Nature of God
  • The Cross and Lordship of Christ
  • Evangelism and Missions
  • The Father-Heart of God

This is just a taste of some subjects that will be covered in this time. Along with the lectures, your learning experience will include encountering God through worship, intercession, small groups, one-on-ones, work duties, and local evangelism. These activities are incorporated to create applicable opportunities that will bring you closer to God and others in a greater way. 

The Outreach Phase

The Outreach Phase is the time following the Lecture Phase in which you apply all that you’ve been learning to practical ministry in a local community or other nation. 

We will be doing around 12 weeks of outreach for this school. During this time, you will have the opportunity to introduce people to the love of Jesus. It’s a chance to put into practice all that God has spoken to you during the Lecture Phase and reach out with His love to impact many lives. Through this time of outreach, you will see the kingdom of God further advanced in the nations. It’s a chance to say “Yes” to God and faithfully step out to experience how He wants to work in and through you to touch the lives of others.
