Sometimes The Lord grabs hold of us, he looks us in the eyes like no one ever can and he knows what we need. He knows what we need. It comes in many ways, the filling of the void, a river of life, a well of wonder from deep inside. In an instant and a lifetime the God of gods, the Lord of lords fixes everything that was ever wrong with you, any wrong that’s ever been done to you. Jesus, The Great Healer, The Great Redeemer is calling you to a well that will never run dry, are you tired? Are you thirsty?
This Discipleship Training School is about the inexhaustible tap of rushing water that God, the one talked about in the Bible and the Father of Jesus Christ, has plugged us into. It’s about healing, it’s about breaking down the weak and feeble walls of your heart and coming to know that true strength comes in weakness. We can’t do it alone, we need each other and we need a strong and steady God to lean on. If you look at the characters of The Bible they don’t look fit or worthy to lead others to God, but he chooses them, he redeems them and he gives them a mission. Moses said he wasn’t fit to speak to the masses, David was too small and weak to take down goliath, and Rahab was a prostitute unworthy to save her people or to be in the lineage of Jesus. It didn’t seem to matter to God, he worked through broken people and he wants to restore you! He wants to use you to bring others to true life.
Mongolia is a fertile place for revival, for a gushing stream of grace to pour out, not only through Mongolians, but it’s a breeding ground for people from all over the world. Healed and healthy disciples will be born here, and they will go out too. Come and be a part of the harvest! Know God and make God known, in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia, and in the nations.
Our banner verse for this DTS is John 4:14
“But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again. In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up in him for eternal life.””
IDTS is an intensive live learn environment where we live together, eat meals together, learn the same things and yearn to live out in community the things Jesus has asked us to do.
We envision through classroom activities, small group discussions, intercessory prayer, and community involvement that students would become disciples of Christ sent out to the nations and even their own homes.
IDTS will be taught and translated both ways in Mongolian and English and time wise is split into two phases:
Lecture Phase - 12 weeks of study and classroom focused on knowing God intimately. A range of speakers from different backgrounds and cultures will drop in weekly to school us on things like God’s Father Heart for us, Biblical Worldview, etc.
Outreach Phase - 8 weeks of applying what was learned by making him known! This could be building houses, evangelizing, praying for the sick, and beyond.
If any of this pricks at your heart and makes you feel excited to jump into this river that God has stoked before you, pray earnestly about applying and then do just that. Give Jesus your youth, give him your yes!
