Crossroads Discipleship Training School (YWAM-CDTS)
Is the Crossroads Discipleship Training School for me? CDTS is offered through Mission Builders International (MBI) at YWAM Montana, which is especially designed for adults ages 30 and older who are seeking spiritual renewal, vision, or new direction. This school provides a unique opportunity to know God more intimately, to increase in godly character, and to become involved in missions. We will spend twelve-weeks in a classroom-like setting and the program is typically run as a residential “live and learn” program. In a way, it can be described as a long retreat that you won’t want to end! Each week a different speaker addresses topics that are core to Christian beliefs designed to grow your faith in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Crossroads Discipleship Training School has a 12-week lecture phase followed by an 8-week field assignment.
Following the 12-weeks of lecture phase, students typically participate in an 8-week field assignment somewhere in the world to share the love of Jesus by serving others. This CDTS will have outreaches which focus on serving YWAM bases in different locations in North America and beyond. A typical outreach will serve in 2-3 locations for 2-4 weeks at a time. The outreach destination is often determined before the school begins but not necessarily solidified. During the lecture/training phase much prayer, dialog and input goes into the location before the school is over. The outreach is a time for the content of the lectures and the discovery of call and gifts to be of great benefit to the people that we share the Gospel no matter where we are led. It is a rich and memorable experience that adds and equips the learning to be a great addition to God's purposes. MBI is conducting the CDTS under the auspices of YWAM Montana which has generously offered its help in registering CDTS students for them to qualify for educational credits through the University of the Nations.
