Dicipleship Training School
About the school
A DTS is a training program for people in search of God. For those who feel a deep desire to feel Jesus in a completely new, deeper and stronger way. People who want to be challenged by God for five months to find new ways to follow him. To get to know Him better and make Him known. In this DTS we will have a special focus on the the captive, broken and exploited – to the victims of Human-Trafficking.

Throughout human existence this system of enslaving and controlling people has been a constant companion. It seems overwhelmingly impossible that God’s beloved creatures could be physically set free from the bondage mankind has them in.
This system fundamentally contradicts how God created us: In His image, full of love, free and equal.
Perhaps one of the most famous anti-trafficking campaigners was William Wilberforce who, after decades of campaigning, succeeded in the 19th century in getting slavery banned in the then British Empire, at that point ruled a quarter of the world! He said the following memorable sentence:
We are too young to realize that certain things are impossible…
So we will do them anyway.
We have escaped like a bird from the fowler’s snare;
the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Structure of the School
To know God
The first three months of your DTS will be the lecture phase. Three months full of opportunities to learn, relate and serve. Three months to immerse yourself more deeply in your relationship with Jesus and to discover your identity. During this time you will receive teachings from men and women from different parts of the world that will challenge you, make you curious and increase your knowledge. The theoretical phase is not only about classes, you will also be able to: build relationships, get to know Galicia and have many other opportunities to grow.
To Make him known
The next two months will be a cross-cultural outreach, probably in the Philippines. The objective is to put into practice what we have learned and what God has done through the last three months: You will have many opportunities to serve in different places throughout the beautiful Islands and different ministry opportunity with a focus on Human-Trafficking: how to prevent people from becoming casualties to this horrific practice, ways to help the victims out of it and reaching them with the good news of Jesus.
