Sports Discipleship Training School
Dates: October 2019 – March 2020
”The Sports Discipleship Training School is a five month’ lifestyle program for athletes who long to follow Gods call on their life ! Discipleship, community, challenging teaching and local outreach are weekly returning activities on the agenda.
Next to the general DTS curriculum with teachings on for example ‘Hearing Gods Voice’, ‘Identity’, ‘Authority’, ‘The Fatherheart of God’ among other key topics, there is a weekly sports training schedule.
12 Hours a week are set apart for sports training – with football, running, fitness/work out being the main focus points.
We will learn about the importance of sports in the kingdom of God, hear about ‘sports and the prophetic’, and apply ways to use sports as a tool to transform society wherever we are called.
We practice using sports for community events, passing cultural boundaries and friendship evangelism, for example. We train together and go out for evangelism using football and fitness.
During the Sports DTS, you learn to use your athletic skill in a missional way. Local outreach in Brussels and Belgium provide lots of opportunity for this, as well as a planned outreach abroad.
The emphasis in the Sports DTS is to receive spirit-filled teaching through which we allow God to shape our character and way of thinking, so that we can become messengers of the kingdom, using our passion for sports!
In our Brussels’ community, we find it important to be influential in our city and to serve one another. We desire to do life together as a team, receiving from one another.
We believe that community living is a great way to break with our often individualistic culture. There is a strong focus point on personal devotion and discipleship.
YWAM Brussels is located just a short walk away from great facilities including three cages (for football), a running track and one 11a-side football pitch. There’s a lot of youth from foreign backgrounds who are most likely spending more time on the football pitch than at home.
God has given us as a base a heart for these people and we are creating platforms to fruitfully invest in the lives of these youth!
We are also blessed with a fully equipped fitness space on base!
