Golf Discipleship Training School

The golf DTS is a 5-6 month YWAM Discipleship Training School with a special focus on golf. Students will be trained to know God and to make Him known. Learning to follow Jesus as the Way, the Truth and the Life is what this school is about. Biblical worldview and life lessons from golf will be interwoven into the school through lectures, small group discussions and one on one mentoring. Quality international speakers will visit each week to teach, encourage and impart the ways of God both creatively and relationally.

Individual and group golf lessons from a seasoned golf pro will take place 2-3 times a week and a full game of golf played most Saturdays. Basic digital swing analyzing, golf training aids, golf movies and 19th hole discussion groups will add to the golf learning experience. Our goal is to see your handicap decrease and your love for the game and God increase. 

After the first 3 month lecture phase, students will participate in a 10 week outreach phase where they will do friendship evangelism, teach golf to young people and make disciples through various types of missionary activity – all around the focus of golf.

This school is for young men and women (18 and older) who want to increase their golf ability and who desire to go to the next level in their relationship with God and His will for their lives.

Some Topics include:

  • Character & Nature of God
  • Hearing the Voice of God
