There is something powerful, even counter-cultural when a person or group of people develop meaningful relationships with people from other generations. In the Kingdom of God, it is normal for different generations to journey together because God is a God of ALL Generations.
Celebration, praise, and worship bring together the youngest and the oldest, and everyone in between. In Psalm 145 it says, “One generation shall tell of your works to another” and we think that goes in both directions; youth can glean wisdom from older people and the very elderly can learn from the very young.
Young and old are used mightily by God both in the Bible and in our experience, we have seen it happened for many years. You are never too old to learn new things and you are never too young to journey with the other generations.
Has God ever invited you to take a risk? Have you ever felt compelled to do something but being resistant? Join us on this journey! Let’s travel together with the Lord. Nobody brings people together as Jesus does. Jesus shows the world what community can look like. As we learn, grow and serve together, God’s love, peace, grace and power flow amongst us!
ALL GENERATION Discipleship Training School is YWAM’s primary discipleship training program for people ages 18 and above and is open to singles and couples. All Generations provides an exciting opportunity to explore and develop your calling into missions and ministry. Those who come are often seeking spiritual renewal, vision, or new direction. We invite you to be revived and refreshed spiritually and to go deeper in your walk with God. Come and be challenged and inspired and continue to grow in the call of God upon your life whether you are being called into missions long term or seeking to influence the area where God will place you.
Our goal is to see you grow in your relationship with God and recognize that the natural outflow of that is to bring the gospel to others. We want to equip you to reach the lost, care for the poor and needy and convey Jesus’ message to a world who needs to know Him. Serve and grow alongside others from different age groups who have similar goals and vision, learn together and sharpen one another as you serve God’s purposes.
The program consists of three months of classroom training (lecture phase) and 12 weeks field experience (outreach phase).
ALL Generations DTS is sometimes referred to as a school of the Holy Spirit. During these 3 months, students will engage in an interactive classroom study with guest speakers enhanced with small groups and individual mentoring. The emphasis is living discipleship as a lifestyle—meaning that a life spent following Jesus is one spent constantly learning and being refined to be more like Him.
Students also will have work duties to emphasize working as a team and living life with the heart of a servant. The lifestyle is simple—multicultural and international—with meals eaten together in a community dining room.
