Understanding and receiving God’s heart and our call to the exploited
Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
YWAM BRIDGES OF LIFE
GOD'S HEART AND OUR CALL TO THE EXPLOITED
The Justice Acts DTS is a training program to help students grow deeper in their faith and be equipped to serve Him to their highest potential. This is a place of confidence in who the Father is and who we are. It is the very best state to serve the exploited.
“Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.” -Proverbs 31:8-9
The Justice Acts DTS includes 12 weeks of bilingual (French/ English) lectures in the town of Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort. Students will grow in their faith with various teachings as well as being better equipped for ministry to the exploited with more Justice-themed lectures such as The Demand and the Sources, Ministering to the Marginalised, and God’s Justice and our Response.
Various teachings can include:
Nature & Character of God
Hearing the Voice of God
Father Heart of God
Life in the Spirit & Spiritual Warfare
Reading through the Bible
Fear of the Lord
Identity in Christ
Throughout the Lecture Phase, we’ll spend time in class, listening to teaching, worshipping, praying, serving the community in daily tasks, and sharing as a group and one-on-ones with staff. You will also have a one week local outreach during Lecture Phase to look forward to, giving you a taste of the mission field.
Outreach is the second 12-week phase of your DTS and will take place in different countries in the world. Some places we have sent teams to in the past are different cities in France (Paris, Montpellier, Nantes, Lyon, Marseille), Kosovo, Togo, French Polynesia, Thailand, India, Nepal, and Cambodia. The Outreach is where you get to expand your horizons and put into practice all God has been teaching you during the lecture phase.
Outreach activities include evangelism, mercy ministries, teaching, children’s ministries, preaching, prophesying and reaching out to present Jesus in a variety of other creative, apostolic ways, as well as minister to the exploited whenever possible.
