Now people of passion and skill are gathering to become a Voice for the Voiceless.
This dynamic partnership between photogenX and Grassroots News offers a rigorous discipleship and media journey to stand against injustice and voice the cause of the voiceless through media advocacy initiatives and news reporting.At the end of this DTS, you will know God deeper and be equipped to be able to speak clearly for the voiceless.
This is the heart of the voice for the voiceless DTS: "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy." (Proverbs 31:8-9).
* This school is open to everyone, not just those that have done a DTS with YWAM
250 years ago a wild breed of men were unleashed into the wilderness of America not unlike the 12 young, zealous disciples that Jesus sent out in Matthew chapter 10. The mandate for these young circuit riders: Take the gospel to the remote corners of America's frontier.
“No family was too poor, no house too filthy, no town too remote, and no people too ignorant to receive the good news that life could be better.”
Their message: The kingdom of God has come, repent, be baptized and follow Jesus. Their payment: A mere 60 dollars a year if anything at all. The cost: Their very lives. 50% died before reaching 33 years old. Their reward: Nothing in terms of societal success and yet everything in terms of the glory of God! These leaders lived for a cause greater than themselves. They were dangerous to the enemy, and powerful in the hand of the Almighty God!
The Circuit Riders of old were forerunners in their day. The same call is going out again, God is raising up their example for today’s forerunner generation! The mode and methods have changed, but the mandate, message and cost of the Circuit Rider remain the same. The nations are crying out in darkness. Who will go and gather the lost all over the Earth? Who will go and awaken the Church to the joy of living fully alive in Jesus?
