Know God and Make Him Known… In Business

The Business Discipleship Training School

Oswald Chambers was writing about discipleship when he said, “It is ingrained in us that we have to do exceptional things for God – but we do not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things of life, and holy on the ordinary streets, among ordinary people.”

I often think of this quote when I think about our lives spent in the marketplace. The ‘marketplace’ has become a general term for the places where the vast majority of Christians spend the vast majority of their lives. There is a growing number of Christians who recognize that their primary sphere of influence for Christ is right where He has placed them, in their workplace or business. There is a growing movement of people that long to see God’s Kingdom transformation in and through the marketplace.

Transformation, however, begins with us; transformed people with a transformed understanding of God’s plans for the world and His purposes for business. The Business DTS is for those with a passion for marketplace transformation. The DTS will focus on personal growth and on serving God in business and through business.

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) is one of the most established discipleship courses in the world. Over its 35 year history, hundreds of thousands of people have been through a Youth With a Mission (YWAM) DTS in over 200 locations around the world.

The next Business focused Discipleship Training School starts in January 2014 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Dates are January 18 to June 21, 2014 – 12 weeks of training, followed by 10 weeks of service in Thailand.

The Business DTS: a life changing discipleship and business training course. Know God and make Him known in business!

Announcing the Brand New Business DTS


We are please to announce the first ever Business Discipleship Training School beginning in January 2013 in Chiang Mai, Thailand.


Do you feel called to serve God in business and want to be more prepared? Do you long for a season to re-focus on your walk with God? The Business DTS will be an opportunity to cultivate more of that into your life.


During this five month course we will look at the Biblical basis for business as a catalyst for God’s kingdom here on earth. As we dig into God's Word together we’ll learn his ways of living and working, while transforming the lives of those around us. For the last two months we will intern with and come alongside Kingdom businesses here in Southeast Asia. We will learn from first-hand experience what it means to live and work in a cross-cultural setting.


Come and join a community of believers and life-long learners who are fostering a global kingdom business movement for transformation among the nations. Come be a part of the Business DTS, here in Chiang Mai Thailand. We will seek God with you for five months, and see him transform our daily lives into intentional acts of worship. DTS looks at basic Christian principles, and gives you the resources to nourish Christian growth for a lifetime. Read more about Business DTS
