Discipleship Training School

  • YWAM San Francisco

Discipleship Training School is a six-month program in which students are immersed in weekly learning alongside continual ministry involvement. Students spend three months in downtown San Francisco, learning from a variety of teachers and working with initiatives of YWAM SF, then three months overseas, where they are plunged into full-time, daily ministry.

The Winter DTS runs from January to June, with an outreach focus on Italy and the Mediterranean. Since 2002, YWAM San Francisco has been committed to sending DTS teams to Rome, Italy. This consistency has allowed for long-term relationships with our contacts in the country and develop a passion and understanding for how God is moving in Italy.

Belonging and Becoming | Community Night

Join us for a night of community, ministry highlights, and a conversation about Belonging and Becoming: Thriving in the City as a Family.

This is a FREE event

Doors open at 6:30pm, Program begins at 7:00pm.

 

Today's families face many competing demands and challenges. How can we create a home that honors the best of where we come from and embraces the emerging challenges and opportunities of life in the 21st century? It’s easy to get stuck reacting to the unhelpful patterns. Or it’s tempting to mirror the default values of safety, security, self-focus and material success that have characterized our culture. We know that simplistic, rule-based and one-size fits all approaches won’t work. Now more than ever, we need a vision for family that is creative, intentional, soulful and globally aware.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have children, hope to have children, parent solo or with a partner, your household can be a place of BELONGING, where each person feels safe, cared for and loved AND a place of BECOMING, where you help one another develop who you are for the good of the world.

Join authors Mark and Lisa Scandrette for this practical session based on their latest book, Belonging and Becoming: Creating A Thriving Family Culture. Together we will explore tools and practices that can help your family thrive.  

Mark and Lisa Scandrette are cofounders of ReIMAGINE: A Center for Integral Christian Practice. They lead an annual series of retreats, workshops, and projects designed to help participants apply spiritual wisdom to everyday life. They live in the Mission District of San Francisco and have three young adult children. Mark is the author of Practicing the Way of Jesus and together they coauthored Free: Spending Your Time and Money on What Matters Most.

YWAM San Francisco started as a small seed of faith, planted more than 20 years ago. Since then, we’ve put down roots and watched the ministry grow. As we’ve committed to a place, God has borne fruit — relationships, discipleship and transformation — in the midst of our neighborhood. As we look forward, we’re continuing a commitment to our call by paying down the mortgage on our ministry center, digging deeper and preparing for the harvest ahead.
