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.
there has never been
as many slaves
50 Million people
live in slavery
12 Million children
is the average price of a slave
150 Billion $
is the annual profit from forced labour
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.
