MC sounds similar to Youth with a Mission's discipleship training schools (DTS), residential programs where (most often) young people are taught to discern their gifts and deepen their relationship with God. A close friend completed a DTS in rural Colorado, and-- like Nimrod observed of MC students-- left the program with greater clarity, compassion, a mature perspective on kingdom-building and shalom, and a desire to engage the world's problems with integrity. 8 years later, she coordinates HIV programs in Mozambique, particularly caring for "widows and orphans." To a great degree, she attributes her formation to the DTS experience. She says the other participants were equally impacted.
