One of the many branches of Youth With A Mission is called Kerygma Teams.
“Kerygma” means “proclaiming the Good News of Jesus the Christ”, and is a term that is particularly used in the Catholic world.
In 1965 after Vatican II, the last Catholic church council which brought incredible changes, the Holy Spirit was poured out in a new way in the Catholic world. It is estimated that about 10% of all Catholics worldwide were touched by the Holy Spirit and brought into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Many of them have formed prayer groups and/or communities in which they meet for worship, teaching, fellowship and prayer. They often have a zeal for evangelism and are involved in what the late pope John Paul II called for “a re-evangelization of the Catholic church”. In Slovakia hundreds of Catholic prayer groups exist and YWAM Slovakia has been ministering in many through teaching, discipleship and counselling.
The Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Slovakia is therefore open to staff and students from the Catholic world that have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
