Join us in Australia for a Compassion Discipleship Training School (DTS)!

This 6-month course is a full-time, unique, live/learn community experience. It consists of two parts: lecture phase and outreach phase. The lecture phase will offer you a time of deep revelation as well as liberating personal application. Encounter God like never before as you hear from seasoned speakers who live out the principles they teach. The outreach phase will take you to places you have only dreamed about as you take the Gospel into the nations! Grow in confidence as you share your testimony from small to large groups in cross-cultural settings.

Example core curriculum topics include:
  • Hearing God’s Voice
  • Character & Nature of God
  • Building and Maintaining Godly Relationships
  • Fatherheart of God

This year’s October schools have the unique opportunity of joining YWAM Newcastle as we pioneer our new ship ministry!  Earlier this year, we received two vessels within eight days of each other that will enable us to join the work of YWAM Ships in Papua New Guinea.  YWAM Ships has partnered with the government of PNG to deliver services such as primary health care, optometry, hygiene education, and dentistry to rural communities all over the country.  You can read more about our ship deploying to Papua New Guinea here. Our entire community will support this new mercy ministry in the initial launch.  For our DTS’, this could include local ship awareness tours, on board lectures, or preparing the ship for deployment.  Additionally, each of our DTS themes within October will have a ship focused outreach as one of their options.  Join us in this exciting season as we launch a new mercy ministry for missions at YWAM Newcastle! 

Example ‘compassion’ sessions include:
  • The value of human life through the eyes of the Creator.
  • Bringing the promise of hope into a broken world.
  • Addressing issues of poverty and injustice

Compassion and authority will fill every step as you participate in an adventure into mercy focused evangelistic missions. Opportunities could include working with children at risk in Asia, evangelizing to brothel owners in Eastern Europe, or ministering to the homeless in the West. There are endless opportunities to respond and share God’s heart to people in every corner of the globe. Outreach will take you to the places you have only ever dreamed about! Grow in confidence as you share your testimony to large audiences. Whether you are called to long-term or short-term missions, the benefit of going to a cross-cultural location and seeing the needs of that location and then being part of the solution is life changing! Each DTS sends teams to unique locations.

Here are a few places we have gone:

Papua New Guinea, Thailand, India, Japan, Indonesia, Columbia, Mexico, South Africa, Latvia, Spain, New Zealand & around Australia.
