“From our neighbors to the nations, REACHing the world with the Gospel of Christ!”
REACH DTS – REACH Discipleship Training School is an intensive training program for young adults made up of two parts: the lecture phase in the beautiful city of Helsinki, and an outreach abroad. The school’s name is REACH, which stands for reaching the unreached, our strong emphasis is on evangelizing and reaching people to Christ. We want to know God and make him known as we equip you to REACH others with the Gospel.
During the 12 week lecture phase, we will focus on knowing God, His world, and our place in it. We will be hearing from different teachers each week from both Finland & Abroad. We at YWAM value teachers who do first then teach, in other words they walk the walk before they talk the talk. The teaching will be intensive, challenging, as well as Holy Spirit led. In addition to the lectures, we will also be learning from community living, small groups, homework assignments, mentoring times, worship & intercession, weekly outreaches, and practical work duties. Our mornings start with our personal quality time with God, followed by prayer & worship. ,
(NOTE: All teaching will be either conducted or translated into both Finnish & English)
Our afternoons will also be spent together in study sessions, small groups, mentoring times, local outreaches, practical work duties, etc…
After our time in the classroom is over, we will head off on our outreach, which will focus on making God known by applying what we’ve learned in the classroom through an intense, 8 week cross-cultural mission trip. During the outreach you will get to see and experience what missions work looks as you serve and share the Gospel while ministering with your team.
Truly this will be a hands-on, full-time, and life-changing 5 months!
REACH DTS is best suited for young adults who want to join a community of believers passionate about knowing and going deeper with Jesus and whose desire is to REACH those around them with the news of what he’s done! This school is for the dreamers, the risk-takers, the adventurers, and those who are determined to seek and find what it is in life that they’re REACHing for. We want YOU who want to learn to REACH not only this city, but also the world with the Gospel of Christ!
