Justice Movement DTS
"Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established fairness. You have acted with justice and righteousness..." - Psalm 99:4
Right now, God is stirring a righteous zeal in the hearts of His people against areas of injustice! Justice Movement DTS IS your chance to do something for the vulnerable, the forgotten, and the hidden. Working out of our newly built Family Care Centre in Vanuatu, whilst on outreach, you’ll have the opportunity to engage this broken nation at a personal and family level. Join what God is doing in the nation of Vanuatu, and be part of a lasting transformation! Is God stirring the zeal in YOU?
Imagine a world where 80% of all women have been raped by the age of 12; where two-thirds of all men are involved in a sexually incestuous relationship; where unwanted babies are ritualistically dropped down a pit toilet. Sadly, the people of the island nation of Vanuatu don’t have to imagine: this is their reality.
In an age of statistics, data, and over-information, many will read or hear grievous reports such as these, and will take no further action. It has regrettably become socially acceptable to simply “be informed” on the issue, but to not actually do anything about it. However, the TIDE is SHIFTING. All across the globe, the church of Jesus Christ is beginning to rise up and take action; no longer will She stay on the sidelines when thousands upon thousands are falling victim to senseless violence, and horrific sexual abuses.
The Justice Movement DTS is not just place to become aware of the various injustices that plague this island nation. This is a place where you can actually do something that will shift the momentum of a nation, bringing light, joy, and hope to a people who have very little. The Justice Movement DTS will provide you with the opportunity to effectively partner with the Living God, bringing transformation to real people and real communities, as you watch God’s justice prevail over evil.
Over the course of the twelve weeks of lecture phase, you will study what we believe to be the key issues in the journey toward Biblical transformation in Vanuatu. Marine Reach is actively involved in Community Development and Transformation. Jesus commissioned us to disciple nations, and that is exactly what we intend to do.
While on outreach, you will get to work with YWAM Marine Reach’s Family Care Centre, in Port Vila, Vanuatu. Embracing a holistic approach to justice, the Justice Movement DTS will not only equip you, but also release you into an area of justice that you are passionate about; whether it’s primary healthcare and education, or working with the local and national government to bring changes to legislation, we want to give YOU the opportunity to make your IMPACT on this nation.
Isaiah prophesied of a generation that would rise on the earth, zealously bringing God’s justice to the islands of the sea (Isa. 42:4). Do you want to be a part of the fiery, compassionate, and tenacious fulfillment of a near 3000-year-old prophecy? The islands wait expectantly. Join the Justice Movement!
The Lord replies, “I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do.”- Psalm 12:5
Please note: All of our DTS's join together weekday mornings for combined lectures, worship, and intercession. The main lectures cover topics like Hearing God's Voice, Relationships, the Nature and Character of God, and the Holy Spirit, to name a few. Normally in the afternoons throughout the week, each individual school will have specific focus groups, also known as streams. The streams are tailor made to focus on each school's theme. As detailed above, the Justice Movement stream will study the issues of injustice in Vanuatu, learn how to provide basic medical and spiritual care, and discover God's burning heart for justice!
Our Discipleship Training Schools are registered with the University of the Nations but not for the purposes of accreditation, as U of N is not an accredited University as stated on their web site.
