Reaching the Unreached DTS (RU DTS) is divided into two parts: a twelve-week lecture phase, followed by a nine-week outreach phase. In order to graduate from the RU DTS, both phases must be successfully completed.
Classroom & Training
The lecture phase consists of an elective of your choice, classroom curriculum, required reading, one-on-one mentoring, intercession groups, personal devotions, work duties, and various ministry opportunities. All of these activities are aimed at helping students learn more about God and to deepen their relationship with Him.
Topics we cover
- The character of God
- Personal character development
- How to hear God’s voice
- Developing healthy relationships with others
- Developing a strong devotional life
- Sharing your faith
The goal of the RU DTS outreach is reaching people who have never heard about Jesus while growing in our personal passion for the lost. Each school’s outreaches travel to work among Unreached People.
For eight weeks the teams will have the incredible privilege of impacting nations with the Good News of Jesus. Ministry opportunities usually include one-on-one evangelism, research of specific unreached people groups, intercession and worship, encouraging fellow believers and various types of mercy ministries.
Teams may visit more than one nation and focus on specific people groups in each of the nations. A final time of debriefing will take place once teams have returned.
The Discipleship Training School at YWAM Jacksonville is affiliated with the University of the Nations in Kona, Hawaii. The school offers college credit hours that may be transferrable to other colleges.
