January 2013 DTS

"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come together in unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ;" Ephesians 4:11-13

We have been called to stand above the norm, we have been summoned to be set apart, we have a purpose, a mission. God is calling forth His body, a people who have a deep desire to know Him intimately and to make Him known, are you ready?

Who are you? The YWAM Pismo Beach Winter DTS is looking for students who desire to discover who God created them to be, and develop their gifts and callings; students who have a passion to be set apart and serve God. Our call is to go forth, heal the sick, preach the Gospel, and raise the dead, desiring to reach deeper levels of holiness with the One who is intimately and passionately in love with us. We are looking for students who have a desire to be discipled, and in turn, learn to disciple others. Our heart is to see young people move in the power of the Spirit, equipped in the Central Coast of California and sent into the nations.

During the lecture phase (January - April) we will have speakers share with us about things like the Character & Nature of God, Discipleship, Grace, Evangelism, Identity, and other great topics. From the teachings each student will be expected to prepare their own sermons to be used on outreach. We will also have weekly meetings where we will find out who God created us to be, develop your gifts and callings, plan ministry, and more. Our heart is to explore different topics that are relevant to this generation and are in line with current moves of God. Students will also be planning and doing weekly local outreaches and evangelism in California.

The outreach phase (April thru June) will be ten weeks of using the gifts God has given us to reach the un-reached. We will be boldly proclaiming the Gospel in the nations; also spending time doing intercession, evangelism, mercy ministries, etc, putting into practice our gifts and all that we have learned during lecture phase.

We invite you to come and set aside these five months to take up your cross, be ruined for the ordinary, be soldiers for Christ, and be captured by His love. "that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head - Christ - from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love." - Ephesians 4:14 - 16
