About

GO Africa DTS is a bridge for African and European trainees to walk in unity, a generation of leaders, led and empowered by The Holy Spirit, fulfilling The Great Commission and returning to the simplicity and purity of Jesus’ words when He said, “GO” (Matt. 28). We long to see true discipleship within The Body of Christ as believers rise and take initiative, as they understand their true identity and their calling.

Our mission is to teach, train, equip, and empower both Africans and Europeans in the ways of God by simultaneously running a Discipleship Training School in Herrnhut, Germany and Kigali, Rwanda. To learn from one another and be sent out together into the nations; preaching and teaching alongside each other, seeing the Kingdom of God established in every area.

Lecture Phase

The first 2 weeks of the lecture phase is simultaneously run in Herrnhut, Germany, and in Kigali, Rwanda. The third week will have all the trainees together in Kigali, to complete the remaining weeks of the lecture phase. We believe in engaging with the culture while, being the visible hands and feet of Jesus within a mission’s setting. We partner with local missionaries to learn about the culture and together, grow as a family of believers adopted into God’s kingdom. Through teachings on the Kingdom of God, His heart for all nations, group discussions, intercession, and learning the how to be a practical disciple of Christ, you will learn about God’s original design for humanity: one body, many parts, many cultures and all are children of God.

Outreach Phase

The outreach phase focuses on applying what you’ve learnt in the classroom through an intentional cross-cultural experience. It is vital to practice everything God teaches us in order to continue growing and maturing, and the outreach phase is an incredible opportunity for this to take place. For the topics and principles learnt in the lecture phase to really take root and become established in the lives of our trainees, a DTS is never complete without the outreach phase.

We believe it is important to open our #hearts, #homes, #campuses and bases to #serve and #honor one another, our guests and the poor and needy, not as acts of social protocol, but as expressions of #generosity.

  • Today we look at value Nr 16. of our foundational values. Its hard to live your life for Jesus if you depend on something other than him! He’s our provider, our shepherd and keeper! 
16. PRACTICE DEPENDENCE ON GOD

YWAM is called to #practice a life of #dependence upon God for financial #provision. For individuals and #YWAM corporately this comes primarily through His #people. As God has been #generous toward us, so we desire to be generous. YWAMers give themselves, their time and talents to God through the #Mission with no expectation of remuneration.

  • As much as we love the corporate and love working in teams we do value the individual, as God created each one of us uniquely. .
Today we look at value Nr. 14 of the 18 foundational values of #YWAM
.

14. VALUE THE INDIVIDUAL

YWAM is called to #value each individual. We believe in #equal #opportunity and #justice for all. Created in the image of God, people of all nationalities, ages and functions have distinctive contributions and callings. We are committed to honoring God-given #leadership and #ministry gifts in both #men and #women.

13. BE RELATIONSHIP-ORIENTED

  • 12. DO FIRST, THEN TEACH

#YWAM is committed to doing first, then teaching. We believe that firsthand #experience gives #authority to our words. Godly #character and a call from God are more important than an individual’s gifts, abilities and expertise.

  • Today we look at value Nr.11 of our 18 foundational values of #YWAM .
Whether school leader, staff or student, we all serve practically.
As Bill Johnson puts it: “Rule with the heart of a servant. Serve with the heart of a king.”
.
11. EXHIBIT SERVANT LEADERSHIP

YWAM is called to #servantleadership as a #lifestyle, rather than a #leadership hierarchy. A servant #leader is one who #honors the gifts and callings of those under his/her care and #guards their rights and privileges. Just as Jesus served His disciples, we stress the importance of those with leadership responsibilities #serving those whom they lead.

Seeking God’s will and making decisions in a #team context allows #accountability and contributes to greater #relationship, #motivation, #responsibility and #ownership of the #vision. .

  • We Love the #BIBLE 
For us as #GoAfricaDTS it’s especially important when we meet with different cultures and worldviews, that we look into the Bible for answers! 
Today we are looking at value Nr. 9 of the 18 foundational values of #YWAM

9. HAVE A BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW

YWAM is called to a Biblical Christian #worldview. We believe that the Bible – the textbook for all of #life – makes a clear division between good and evil; #right and #wrong. The practical dimensions of life are no less spiritual than the ministry expressions. Everything done in #obedience to God is spiritual. We seek to #honor God with all that we do, #equipping and #mobilizing men and women of God to take roles of #service and #influence in every arena of #society

8. BE INTERNATIONAL AND INTERDENOMINATIONAL

YWAM is #international and #interdenominational in its #global scope as well as its local constituency. We believe that ethnic, linguistic and denominational #diversity, along with redeemed aspects of #culture, are positive factors that contribute to the health and growth of the Mission.

YWAM is broad-structured and #diverse, yet integrated. We are a #globalfamily of ministries held together by shared foundational #covenants, #purpose, #vision, #values and #relationships. We believe that structures should serve the people and the purposes of God. Every ministry at every level has the privilege and responsibility of accountability to a circle of recognized spiritual elders.

  • As #GoAfricaDTS we abide by the 18 foundational values of #YWAM
We started the school because we heard God speak about a bridge between Africa and Europe and seeing Westerners and Africans walk side by side, fulfilling the #greatcommission 
Hearing God’s voice is essential to what we do!

3) Hear God’s Voice 
We are committed to creating with God through #listening to Him, #praying His prayers and #obeying His commands in matters great and small. We are dependent upon hearing His voice as individuals, together in team contexts and in larger corporate gatherings. This is an integral part of our process for decision making.

#ywamherrnhut #goafrica #hearinggodsvoice #ywamvalues #listen #obey #dontgiveup
  • As GoAfrica we abide by the foundational values of #ywam 
These next couple days we want to dive into the 18 #foundationalvalues 
1) TO KNOW GOD
We are committed to know God, His nature, His character and His ways. We seek to reflect who He is in every aspect of our lives and ministry. The automatic overflow of knowing and enjoying fellowship with God is a desire to share Him with others.

2) MAKE HIM KNOWN
We are called to make God known throughout the whole world, and into every arena of society through evangelism, training and mercy ministries. We believe that salvation of souls should result in transformation of societies, thus obeying Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations.
