Before the Discipleship Training School, the roots that gave YWAMers training to go preach the Gospel to all the nations came from the School of Evangelism.
Loren Cunningham, believing that God wanted waves of young people to go preach the Gospel to the nations, saw that they needed training before they could perform such a daunting task. The School of Evangelism was born, a season of time where young people went through the places where Jesus, Peter, and Paul held their ministries and teachings. There, they learned about the character and nature of God, his love and faithfulness, and how to preach to the world of a God that is real.
This small flicker produced a widespread flame that became what is today the Discipleship Training School. We honor the last generation that came before us, and the methods they used to open the doors.
