ACTS school is set on rural land and is the first of its kind in the South Island of New Zealand. It’s designed to help students find a deeper relationship with God – and to experience how the supernatural becomes natural in our everyday life.

Here you will learn how to realise your underlying and possibly undiscovered devotion to Christ as a force to be reckoned with! We will teach you how to best unleash that heavenly power to step out and serve in faith, across all cultures and in the name of Jesus. ACTS school embodies the systems that pull church, community and culture together as one.


YWAM Youth with a mission Christchurch. DTS Discipleship Training School, Christchurch New Zealand.

Time spent immersed in challenging (and fun) theory and practical activities will create a person ready to launch off that steady platform of faith and into a world where you really can make an evangelical difference.

Upon graduation, you will be fully equipped to pursue your missionary passions to find others, either in New Zealand or to any of our outreach posts worldwide. Just follow God’s calling … He knows where you are needed most.
