101 Spark

D T S 

It all starts with an idea. The idea that within every single one of us lies the potential to co-create a bright & hopeful future with God.

That is exactly what the 101 Spark - Discipleship Training School is about. We believe in the power of intentional community, as a place to spark faith & creativity into an irresistible force that can change even the hardest places in the world... whether it's right outside our door or on the other side of the globe.

 

And we also believe that this kind of experience doesn't ''just happen''. And that's why we're putting together a crew of pioneers, creatives and community builders to facilitate an inspiring environment where we want to invite YOU (that's right, YOU) to join us for an exciting season of getting to know God better and having a go at letting the world know who He is and what His kingdom is all about.

So what do you say? Ready to take the leap?

The heart of the 101 Spark DTS is to create an intentional community to help you grow as a disciple, clarify your calling, and inspire you to creatively engage with the needs of our world.

CREATIVITY - You are created in God's image. And it has massive significance!


We are all bearers of God's image and we're given this crazy ability to co-create the future with Him. But the question often comes down to if we actually believe it or not. 101 Spark will help you go deeper in understanding the raw and unique material that makes you, you. You will get to explore how to push the limits of what it actually means to build God's kingdom and making manifest His goodness and beauty to a hungry and broken world.




FAITH - You'll get to know God in a way that will rock your life forever!


Learning and growth doesn't just take place through lectures in a classroom, but through all of life. 101 Spark will help and challenge you to become more like Jesus, as you join into a community committed to living lives of discipleship. We are changed when we encounter God's love and truth and get to know Him personally. Through teachings, personal time with God and one-on-one mentoring you will grow deeper in your relationship with God, setting a solid foundation for the rest of your life.




DO DA THING - You'll get to roll up your sleeves and have a serious go at it.


We believe the best way to test how our faith and creativity can impact the messy world we live in, is simply to throw ourselves into the unknown... and actually ''do da thing''. During the first 12 weeks, you will get the opportunity to work & create with others, developing and trying your hands at initiating an entrepreneurial project with the aim to impact our local community. You will spend one day per week in an inspiring team environment which will also set the tone and direction for the following 12 weeks when we hit the road and go on outreach.





3 key aspects at the heart of the 101 Spark DTS

SEPT 10 -DEC 4

Part One:

Lecture Phase

The lecture phase is a 12-week journey where you get to know God deeper through fellowship with others and through a big variety of activities. You will receive quality teaching from experienced international speakers. Every week has a new topic where you get to go deeper in understanding and practice in topics like God’s Character, Hearing God’s voice, Holy Spirit, Identity, Relationships, missions and more.

Being part of a live-learn environment will also encourage you to explore how to apply all that you are learning into a hands-on and concrete way of life, anchoring all that you are and do in God's love & truth. We recognize that learning and growth don’t just take place through lectures in a classroom, but also through serving, living in community, one-on-one discipleship, personal time with God, worship, small groups and much more. Therefore, all these elements will be woven into the schedule throughout the lecture phase.

Weekly teaching topics

NATURE & CHARACTER OF GOD


What we believe about God will impact how we love and trust Him. This week will encourage you to wrestle with, and respond to, the truth about who He is.




HEARING GOD'S VOICE


God communicates with every person for the purpose of relationship. You will learn to understand and recognize the various ways God communicates with us.




THE MISSION MANDATE


The call to go applies to every Christian. We will learn about the state of the world today and God's heart to see all come to the knowledge of who He is and join into His eternal kingdom.




BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW


God is the source of the entire created order and His desire is that we would know His truth & wisdom as the foundation upon which we build all of life - from the individual to civilizations. This week will help expend your view of who God is and the all-encompassing reach of His kingdom.




IDENTITY:  THE UNVEILING PROCESS


This week will be about exploring together how to make sense of our God-given, intricate identity and how we can learn to live from a place of intimacy with God to bless the world around us.




SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY


Recognizing God’s voice, the power of prayer and God’s heart for the world. Understanding the role we play in fighting against rulers and principalities in the spiritual realm.

Do Da Thing:

Entrepreneurial

Projects

Because we believe that God’s truth and wisdom were never meant to be learnt in a vacuum, a key practice that will be highlighted throughout 101 Spark DTS is translating all you are going to learn into hands-on practical application with the aim of shaping the world around you.  

 

That is at the heart of “Do Da Thing” - a wide open space where together we will get a chance to experiment and learn how to creatively engage with the needs around us. The track you choose will be a unique opportunity for you to use and develop practical skills, exploring how to come up with sustainable solutions that will serve all kinds of societal needs.

This Year's Do Da Thing Tracks

DEC 7 - FEB 26

Part Two:

Outreach Phase

This is the part where you will take all the learning you’ve experienced during the first three months, to the next level. This second part of your DTS will be a time of risk and adventure where you will get to test and explore what it means to apply all you have learned about God, yourself and the needs of the world, in real life situations. 

 

For this year's outreach, your team will be visiting different locations, working with projects that connect with the various entrepreneurial endeavours you will engage with during the first 12 weeks of the lecture phase. This approach will help keep up the momentum already created with the work and ministries we'll be collaborating with. The outreach phase is designed to help you gain experience in these four areas:

SHARE GOD'S LOVE & TRUTH


Part of our calling as children of God is to share His love and truth with those who do not know him. There will be ample opportunities for you to practice how to do this in a variety of creative ways and from a holistic point of view. The goal is to learn how to both tell people about the Good News and God’s love for them and at the same, time show them what His kingdom looks like here on earth.




BROADEN YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON SOCIETAL ISSUES


You will get to wrestle with the difficult reality of encountering broken lives and communities and see up close the roots of all this hurt. This will help you broaden and deepen your understanding of the complex dynamics at play, and hopefully, inspire you to explore how you could wisely and creatively engage with those problems in the future.




HANDS-ON OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE WITH ESTABLISHED MINISTRIES


You will get to serve, bless, and be a part of supporting existing projects and ministries in the community where you will live during the outreach phase. There will be many opportunities for you use your skills and abilities to contribute to the ongoing efforts happening on location. This will give you a taste of what working abroad in a missional setting can look like.




CROSS CULTURAL EXPERIENCE


The world is big and complex and for us to reach the world, we need to engage with it. There are cultures, and ways of life out in the world that are different from what we know. Getting acquainted with the unknown and the unfamiliar will grow your curiosity, challenge your perspective and deepen your understanding of the diversity and beauty of the created world.





AFTER YOUR DTS

So, What's

Next?

One thing you need to know:

there is room for you!

Sparkbox is the vision we are moving towards as a community. It's the dream we have of growing into a crazy playground for pioneers, entrepreneurs and community builders here on the west coast of Sweden. Together and with God, being committed to creating and cultivating sustainable solutions for the problems facing our world today. And through it all, to inspire and empower young people with the truth of the Gospel, so that they may see and know what it means to build a better tomorrow - one that makes manifest our Father’s kingdom, both locally and abroad.

And we want you to know that there is place for you to join the party! We want you to know that your are carrying an enormous creative potential just waiting to explode into brilliance. And our hope is that your DTS would be a time of both growing and dreaming, and that it would feed the fire God has placed in your heart, helping you clarify what He is calling you into and encourage you to boldly start building towards that!

And that's exactly what we want to create space for at Sparkbox: the dreams and visions you are carrying in your heart! So we encourage you to begin thinking already now: what has God placed in you and what will you do with it all? And if you believe that Sweden and Sparkbox is the place for the next leg of your journey, then know that there is a space for you!

Don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

Looking forward to getting to know you!
