A Message From Our Sports DTS 2013 Leader!

By YWAM Newcastle on September 27, 2012 in Discipleship Training Schools, Outreach, Videos

Hello! My name is Faith and I am leading the January Sports DTS here in Newcastle! I am very excited for this school because God has been giving us vision on how to use sports to get into the community to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

I grew up playing sports and continued to play through high school and university. Whether playing casually in the park or competing full fledge, I love sports because they bring people together and are loved in every country.

The Sports DTS is packed full of worship, prayer, evangelism, lectures on different aspects of God and of course sports. It’s all about knowing God and making Him known. One of our students from last year fought through hard circumstances to do his DTS and decided to make the most of it. He prayed “God here I am, use me, send me, change me, mold me into the person you have created me to be.” His relationship with God flourished and he saw several miracles and healings through his hands and speech because he prayed that prayer and meant it. Last year we sent a team to South America with a focus on sports Evangelism and they ended up seeing over 2,000 salvations! How awesome is God! It is truly amazing what a group of people, unified through a love for God and an interest in sports, can do.

We believe that God loves sports and wants to use our passions as a means to spread the gospel. If you’re interested in doing a DTS and love to play sport, email us now!
