What is A Part of Lecture Phase?

In DTS lecture phase your focus will be on knowing God, His Word and His world. You will seek transformation, a renewed mind, and personal growth. You’ll learn not only from teachers but also from community living and practical training. 

Small Group

Accountability is crucial to your discipleship, so you’ll meet twice a week with four to seven people of your same gender. You’ll process what God’s doing, pray for one another, and spur each other on in living out what you’re learning. The YWAM staff who’s leading your small group will help you get all you can out of DTS, meeting with you one-on-one every week to listen, encourage, and pray for you.

Lectures

Lecture phase engages the mind. It usually occurs onsite at a YWAM center, and lasts eleven to twelve weeks. You will receive powerful teaching from speakers and missionaries, meant to provoke, challenge, and encourage. They’ll teach us on a foundational aspect of following Jesus. Our class times are interactive and challenging, focusing on real-life application. Our goal is for the truth to sink deep into our hearts, changing us from the inside out. Issues like hearing the voice of God, identity, sin and forgiveness, and much more are discussed. Classroom time is a chance to build friendships and dig deeper into the questions we all have.

INTIMACY WITH JESUS

Worship and Prayer

Regular times of gathering to worship Jesus are central to the rhythm of DTS. In addition, the whole YWAM Louisville family gathers on Wednesday mornings to worship and hear what God has to say to us. (First we drink coffee and hang out, because that’s important, too.) Our Friday morning worship gatherings include a time of prayer for a specific nation, need, or injustice.

Time With Jesus

The time we set aside to spend with Jesus is the most valuable part of our day. We often call it “quiet time” but the reality is, God speaks to us and we speak to him! As we listen and respond to his Spirit and his Word, quiet time becomes the place where our growth is most personal.

Local Ministry

We love Louisville. We think you’ll love it, too. Each week we scatter throughout the city, building friendships and sharing Jesus through things like after-school mentoring, homeless ministry, service projects, and more. Not only is this a great way to bless our city, it’s key to helping you discover the unique ways God has shaped you for life-long impact.

Community Lifestyle

Most people describe YWAM Louisville as a family, and that’s exactly what God has called us to be: we’re not just on mission, we’re on mission together. And if you’re like most DTS students, you’ll forge life-long friendships here.

Here’s how that plays out: we work together – everyone helps out with things like cleaning, yard work, or meal preparation. We play together in our free time, whether it’s throwing a frisbee, exploring the city, playing a card game, or chatting over coffee. We live together family-style in a few different homes (guys and girls are separate). And we grow together, surrounded by people with the same passion to know God and make him known.
