NATION BUILDERS DTS
The Nation Builders Discipleship Training School is conducted in Pretoria the Administrative Capital of South Africa. See more on the city on this video.
Our world today is searching for answers in every area of life. It is crying out for societal systems and structures that once again champion the dignity of the human person as created in the image of God, providing foundations for a culture that facilitates the flourishing of all of life. We believe these answers rest in God’s people when we commit as individuals to fulfil our purpose; God’s story about our days, which He ordained before time that we should walk in.
In this DTS we offer you a time of reflection on your life map, tracing the authority that God has given you in an area of need, to usher in His Kingdom. We want to look at what it means to be truly human, God’s design for every sphere of society; family, education, church, government, economics (business), science and technology, communication, arts and sports.
In John 10:10 Jesus declares the following to the Pharisees, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (NIV). The Lord Jesus Christ came that you may have life and have it to the full. Not that you would only exist and barely survive, but thrive, expand and influence. He came so that we would flourish.
We’ll explore the concept of flourishing focusing on the questions – What does it mean to have life? What would it look like if we had it to the full?
Our answers to these questions will speak to our:
- Life calling (what is the problem that needs fixing? The need that God is highlighting to you?)
- How you’ll address the need (what is your strategy and outcomes? How will you know that you’re walking out your calling?)
- The sphere of influence you’re called to (what is God’s design and purpose with each sphere?)
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
Focus lectures will include:
- Transformational leadership
- Cultural Redemption
- Nation Building Project Plan
(a framework for action towards fulfilling your purpose and calling)
Weekly city engagements will include:
- University campus ministry
- Community projects
The Nation Builders DTS will also offer an internship according to the area of need you feel called to. This is an opportunity to further refine and begin implementing your Nation Building project, while receiving mentorship for further effectiveness in your field. Please make sure to fill out the pre-course survey to help us prepare better for you.
