Part One: Lecture Phase
The first 12 weeks of DTS, the lecture phase, are spent on the campus at YWAM Los Angeles. Students live, study, worship, pray, and work together in community during the lecture phase. Each week focuses on a different area of discipleship teaching.
The JDTS will cover the traditional DTS lecture topics such as The Nature and Character of God, Hearing the Voice of God, Father Heart of God, Effective Evangelism, as well as tying all topics into God’s heart for justice. We have frequent human trafficking workshops throughout our JDTS schedule. We aim to educate students on the issue of human trafficking, some of its various causes, and ministry in this area. We will be discussing and processing the many challenges involved with ministry in human trafficking. Our students will also have the opportunity to serve weekly with our Justice 180 ministries and our local ministry partners in order to aid our efforts in combating trafficking in Los Angeles.
A TYPICAL WEEK WILL INCLUDE:
Personal devotional time
Daily lectures with teachers from all over the world
Work duties in which we all serve the base for a couple hours a day
One-on-one processing times with a staff member
“Family time” with the school
