Discipleship as a lifestyle


Discipleship as lifestyle.

The Crossroads Discipleship Training School is specially designed for adults aged 30 and older; singles or couples, who are seeking spiritual renewal, vision, or new direction.

This CDTS is designed to further equip you for engagement in ‘Knowing God and Making Him Known’ whether locally or internationally. The emphasis is living discipleship as a lifestyle—meaning that a life spent following Jesus is one spent constantly learning and being refined to be more like Him with the natural outflow of bringing the gospel to others.

Come alongside others who have similar goals and vision, learn together and sharpen one another as you serve God’s purposes.

We recognise that as someone with life experience you come to this school with much to give, but remember that this is also a time for you to receive, realign, deal with the past and be refreshed in all the Lord has for you. The Crossroads DTS will be a great next step, which will punctuate the rest of your life.

Chris and Carol Hatton

Chris and Carol Hatton

Originally from Canada, Chris moved to Australia via Hawaii in his teens with his parents who are also missionaries. Chris became a carpenter after working for a while in Youth With A Mission, and during his apprenticeship won awards for his work. He has always enjoyed building, especially with natural products. Now in his forties, Chris’s focus is shifting and is growing in his desire to ‘build’ people instead of houses.

Originally from England, Carol became an Australian citizen in February 2013 having lived in Australia for the best part of 13 years. She trained and worked as a secondary school teacher with a special interest in kids with behavioural problems.  Her interest has more recently shifted to adults and helping them work through issues which they feel are of a concern to them personally. Having completed the Certificate IV in Christian Counselling Ministry with YWAM in Perth, Carol is better equipped and ever developing her skills in pastoral care, member care and counselling.

As the Hatton’s continue to follow God’s lead as a family, they continue to be challenged by new situations and the ever-present need to rely on Him for wisdom and insight.

“I will turn the darkness before them into light…”
