The world is a big place and our heart with the DTS is to help you discover your role in the Great Commission, using the unique gifts and abilities God has given you to be salt and light to a world in need. So get ready for a life-changing adventure: we’re heading off to the ends of the earth!

1 - HEARING GOD'S VOICE
God communicates with every person for the purpose of relationship. You will understand and recognise the various ways God communicates.
2 - 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.
3 - MISSIONS
The call to go applies to every Christian. We will learn about the state of the world today and God's heart to reach all people.
4 - HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit has been sent to guide and empower believers. You will learn more about the person of the Holy Spirit and how He works in us.
5 - RELATIONSHIPS
Relationships is the foundation of everything we do! This week teaches us a biblical perspective on how to love God and love people.

NIKO is a five-day wilderness leadership training program where you take risks to discover more about who God has made you to be.
8 - TWO KINGDOMS
Jesus was always teaching about the Kingdom of God. But what is this Kingdom and how is it different from the kingdom of the world?

Learning who we are in Christ is one of the most life changing realisations we can have. What does it mean that we are sons and daughters of God and that we are made holy?
10 - BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW
God wants to be a part of every area of our life. He has plans for your family, school, workplace and even sports, but what are they?
11 - SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY
This week teaches us how to live out the authority we have been given as believers in Christ.
GROW AS A DISCIPLE,
IN A LIVE/LEARN
HOLISTIC LEARNING THAT GOES
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM'S WALLS
As YWAM, our approach to training is holistic - “live-learn” - recognising 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. Throughout the lecture phase, all these elements will be woven into the schedule. Therefore, the DTS doesn’t just happen during day time. Evenings and weekends are also important parts of our “live-learn” environment as students discuss, sharpen and disciple each other.
YOUR CALLING AS
SALT & LIGHT TO
A WORLD IN NEED.
Following three months of lecture phase, your DTS will head off on a 8-12 week cross-cultural outreach. Through both words and action, students will have the privilege of sharing the love of Jesus with others, truly being His hands and feet in a broken world. Outreach teams serve the lost, wherever they are, sharing the hope of Christ in many ways; evangelism, discipleship, sports, drama, youth ministry, teaching, music, practical service, prayer, etc. Teams regularly partner with local churches, YWAM ministries and long-term missionaries to strengthen their work and provide for follow up discipleship. Outreach is an exhilarating time of risk and adventure, as teams serve with local believers; transforming lives and impacting society with the love of Jesus Christ.
YOUR DTS SCHOOL LEADER
SAY HELLO TO JOSEPH OBERG...
Hello there! My name is Joseph, and I will be one of the leaders of the DTS at Restenäs. In the beginning of 2016 I came to the beautiful country of Sweden and did my DTS here at Restenäs. During that time I learned how to hear God's voice, and grew far closer to Him than I ever dreamed I could. Since then, I have become very passionate about spreading God's Kingdom to every corner of the world, and seeing people and cultures restored by His great love, grace, and wisdom. We would like to invite you on the incredible adventure of discovering who God is, who He has made you to be, and the purpose He has laid out before you. Be strong and courageous, and trust that laying your life in God's hands is the
vey best thing you can do with it.
