About FTN

FTN aims to be practical – to teach both principles and application in real world situations — so you can obey Jesus’ command to make disciples in all nations.

During FTN, you’ll learn how to find biblical principles of the kingdom of God in every sphere of society. For example, we’ll discuss environmental issues, the make-up of families, and the role of government in a just society.

You’ll gain experience teaching and applying these principles in real world situations to see transformation. And you’ll trace how God has worked through men and women in history to bring transformation to individuals and communities. Throughout the school, you’ll research and strategize with God to create a plan to see real change brought to a real community.

Pre-Requisites: Successful completion of DTS and DTS outreach; Successful completion of a University of the Nations Bible Core Course (such as Bible School for the Nations, School of Biblical Studies, etc)

What To Expect?

Expect to have your thinking challenged about what God wants for nations and how to work for it. Expect lively discussions and hard work, lots of laughter, and for transformation to begin with you.
