January 21 - June 8
Justice Discipleship Training School (JDTS)
Do you want to pursue God and know His heart more? Do you want to know how to respond to the issues of injustice, and the vulnerable and marginalised in the world around you?
Here as part of the JDTS we want to help you discover how those two are one and the same. As you pursue the God of Justice and His heart, then in turn you will learn how to respond from that place of relationship to the world around you.
We want to raise up a generation of young people passionate about the God of Justice not simply the Justice of God. For us it’s not just about pursuing social justice. But first and foremost pursuing God. Then naturally that relationship with God will impact how you live out your life and how you respond to the people and situations you face in your every day. Throughout the training and into outreach, prayer and worship is established as the foundation to breakthrough and transformation.
God’s heart is for justice! So as you encounter Him you can’t help but become passionate about justice! Then watch and see how encountering His heart will change you and every relationship in your life.
Lecture Phase Overview
DTS Weekly Speakers…
We are in the classroom having speakers talk for a week about topics like Hearing God’s Voice, the Father-heart of God, Relationships, Identity, Worship and Intercession, to name a few. This time is set aside for you to learn, grow and encounter God on a deeper level. This is such a transforming time, and will bring new depths of revelation and insight that could change the trajectory of your life!
Justice Specific Training…
For a more justice focused time twice a week we will spend time digging into the Bible in order to understand God’s heart for justice and how we should respond as He does. As part of that we will spend time learning about a specific injustice issue like human trafficking, poverty, genocide, child soldiers, gender inequality, the persecuted church, and refugees – to name some. This is one of our favourite times of the week, because our expectation is this will be a real time of raising awareness and learning more on a wider array of injustice issues you may not know are going on in the world. But also an opportunity to go deeper and learn more about specific topics,helping you discover where and what your part is in bringing transformation. More importantly, our hope is that you understand how Jesus’ love, hope, and life can impact the most vulnerable through you!
This JDTS is an opportunity for you to focus on your relationship with God and who you are in Him. And how He wants you to respond to others in light of this! The transformation starts with you, but doesn’t stop there!
In Justice Reach we are 100% committed to making a lasting difference in the lives of those who are the most vulnerable; those who are being exploited and abused.
We focus our efforts coming alongside those who are on the front line in ministry committed to fight against injustice within their particular nation. Our goal is to practically support them so they feel encouraged and energised to do what God has called them to do for the long haul. It’s so awesome to be able to hear first-hand what their work is like, and how God is making a difference through them tangibly to those trapped in the web of injustice and abuse. By making a difference for THEM — we make a difference in the lives of those they minister to every single day.
Expect to invest in a way that is long-lasting and meaningful by simply being obedient to what God is asking us to do to help. THAT is radical. THAT is what outreach is all about.
Main outreach focus area is: Southeast Asia.
*Sometimes God changes it up on us though, so please remain open to locations being chosen for your particular school outside this focus area.
