Why A Pathfinders Discipleship Training School Is The Right Choice For You

Have you always wondered what you wanted to be when you grow up? Maybe you had an idea in elementary school, a dream in middle school and a plan in high school, but along the way you started to question if that was the right path for you. Hobbies are fun and certain careers sound interesting, but how do you pick something to do everyday for the rest of your life without becoming bored or disillusioned?

I understand this struggle all too well. My friends had hopes, plans and ambitions of university, high-paying jobs and respectable careers. I had no clue.

I figured I could wait around for a plan to fall into my lap, or I could go out into the world and find the purpose for which God had created me. So I decided to embark on a Discipleship Training School with YWAM.

Because I didn’t have a plan for my future, I thought I might as well choose an intentional 6 months of learning about God, being discipled and engaging in God’s call to missions. I hoped for clarity about God’s plan for my life, and I thought that at the very least, I would grow closer to God and grow as a person.

I never expected my DTS to transform my entire life.

As I learned more and more about God’s character, His Father heart, His unending faithfulness and began to recognize His voice in my life, I found such peace. I realized my doubts, my insecurities, my questions and my anxieties were nowhere near as big as His love and grace.

I realized that God is not disappointed in me, whether I have a plan for my future or not. When I see myself as a failure, He sees me as His child. I have chosen to take Psalm 119:105 to heart, both in minutiae of my daily life, as well as in the broader picture of my future. “[His] word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” His Scripture, the words He speaks into the quiet of my heart, and the conviction He instills throughout my whole being guide me.

I began my DTS thinking that I needed to find my path in life, not realising that it had been God’s gift to me all along.

Are you on the fence about your next step? Maybe you’re agonizing between career choices, or debating between 4 years of university or a gap year adventure. If you’re like me, and you feel overwhelmed and indecisive about the future, wondering how to find your path in life, I highly recommend joining us for a Pathfinders Discipleship Training School. Discover more about God, develop your faith, and find answers to your life-long questions.

Take it from me, the joy of discovery is worth the journey.

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” — Psalm 16:11
