Pioneer Training School (PTS)
The Pioneer Training School (PTS) is a full-time 3-week discipleship training. The training is very practical. You will learn about the foundation of faith: the gospel. And you learn how to effectively pass the gospel message on to others. You will also gain practical experience in healing the sick, casting out demons, baptizing and praying for fulfillment with the Holy Spirit.
Who is this training for?
The PTS is for everyone who is born again and wants to learn how to follow Jesus in a practical way.
Where does it take place?
Most training sessions take place in our training house in Voorthuizen, The Netherlands. This spacious house can accommodate around 12 students. As an exception, we also provide training in other places, if it turns out to be difficult for students to come to Voorthuizen. At the start of 2019, for example, we gave training in The Gambia, Africa.
Is the education provided in English?
Most schools are. But on some dates, the course is only in Dutch. Please check on the signup form in which language the school is. If it’s not written, it will be given in English.
