SMALL GROUPS AND ONE-ON-ONE’S

During the lecture phase you will be allocated a small group where you will be able to process all that you are learning with your peers and leaders. These small group times provide a wonderful opportunity to talk through the different teaching that you hear during your time in class. In this open and honest setting, you will often make close friends as you share openly, talk things through and encourage and support one another.

You will also have access to one-on-one counselling sessions with a designated staff leader where you can share more personally and receive the support, encouragement and prayer that will help you to grow.

SPEAKERS

Speakers from your school will come from the local Christian community, different YWAM ministries in Australia and also from overseas. When selecting speakers for this school, we try our best to chose speakers based on their passion for and understanding of God’s heart for the arts & the artist. In this way, the lectures you sit through, although based on the standard DTS curriculum, will be geared in such a way to make it easier for you to relate to, understand and apply in the pursuit of your calling as an artist.

DTS CURRICULUM

Some of the subjects that you will learn about during the lecture phase include:

  • The Nature & Character of God – Knowing God as a Father
  • Hearing God’s Voice
  • Fear of the Lord & Resisting Temptation
  • Relationships – Forgiveness, Repentance & Conflict Resolution
  • Making Jesus Lord And Surrendering Rights
  • Bible Study
  • Stewardship, Faith And Finances
  • Missions & Sharing Your Faith – Evangelism
  • Intercession
  • Identity in Christ

A HEART FOR MUSIC AND WORSHIP

Although not the focus of the DTS, during the school you will also hear a range of extracurricular topics specific to music ministry including:

  • Heart of Worship
  • Worship Leading
  • Identity of the Artist
  • Music in Missions
  • Advocating for the Poor & Needy
  • Bringing Awareness of Issues of Injustice
  • Event Management (Past Easterfest Staff)
  • Tour Management (Past Easterfest Tour Staff)
  • Songwriting & Recording Your Music (Practical Exercise)

Please note, although you will have opportunities to learn, create music and play together with fellow students in your ‘downtime’, the Music DTS doesn’t do any ‘technical skills based training’ or offer ‘music lessons’ as part of the school. Part of the reason we do this, is to allow students the time they need to process all that they’re learning through the school. By doing this, students come away with a far richer experience, a deeper relationship with God and a stronger foundation on which they can build a successful music ministry upon.

In the future we hope to run a School of Music in Missions, which is a second level school (completion of the DTS is required) that focuses more on technically developing your skills as a musician. We plan on establishing this school in the next couple of years.

RECORDING WEEK

Our DTS’s will also have 1 week of local outreach here in Toowoomba which includes time in our on-site recording studio. This is an amazing opportunity to create a memory of your time here on DTS.
