DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL
Simply put the Awaken Discipleship Training School (DTS) aims to awaken hearts to the great commandment of loving God, overflowing into the second greatest commandment of loving each other and the lost. We are a part of a much broader movement of God on the earth that is awakening a whole generation to the reality of God and complete lordship to Jesus. It is obedience based faith fueled by seeking the presence of God in humility. Allowing his love and grace to do what we could never do ourselves; transform us both individually and corporately.
The God of the Bible is the God of today and the simple Gospel is good news of great joy for all people. Our community longs to see presence centered family multiplied in the nations and across America. We aim to see the members of this family both awakened and equipped to multiply kingdom family wherever they go, even to the ends of the earth.
Kona, Hawaii This season of the school is really focused on training and creating a culture of awakened people. Again transformation must first come inside of us before we can multiply it. This is a time to really cultivate intimacy with God as an individual and a family. We will have Biblical rhythms set into our schedule just like in the early church;
- Modular teaching by leaders in the Body of Christ
- Application times of training and Bible Study
- Living, eating and serving in Community
- Prayer and Worship
- Community outreach in Kona
- Family groups within the Larger school
- One on one Discipleship
Topics may include; testimonies, character and nature of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, hearing God’s voice, lordship and surrender, biblical worldview, biblical study, prayer and worship, revival and reformation, spiritual warfare, missions and evangelism and many others.
After having your own heart transformed, your mind trained and creating a family centered on the presence of God; we will set out for the nations. Living amongst a people not your own and getting to multiply the very message of Jesus that has transformed hearts for two millenniums. You will also begin to discover a whole new place of intimacy and knowledge of God as you begin to really obey the great commission to make Him known. The Biblical values and rhythms facilitated during lecture will become a way of life as dependence on God increases.
Outreach is intended to stretch staff and students to live by obedience; rather than comfort, control and convenience. We aim to let missions become a way of life, not a season or a foreign place we go. Rhythms on outreach will include, but are definitely not limited to;
- Cultivating individual intimacy with God
- Prayer & Worship
- Evangelism in Word and deed
- Mercy ministries providing for basic needs
- Serving & encouraging the local body
- Teaching, training and preaching
- Starting Discovery Bible studies
Upon returning from outreach we will gather again in Kona for debriefing, training and commissioning into the areas of society and the world we feel God is leading us.
