Discipleship Training School

A YWAM DTS is an incredible missions experience that will change your life and change the world. Over five months, you’ll encounter Jesus in deeply personal ways, engage in life-changing spiritual practices, experience authentic community, and travel to the ends of the earth, all while investing in a movement that truly is helping the hurting and the lost.



The first three months of DTS set you up for lifelong friendship with Jesus. Experienced speakers teach on topics like compassion and destiny. Customize your DTS experience through electives like children at risk, arts, or sports.


  • Make lifelong friends from all over the world
  • Deepen your relationship with God


The YWAM DTS outreach will take you to the ends of the earth to preach the gospel, to show God’s love to the poor, to pray for the sick, to help refugees, and to care for orphans and widows.


  • Experience other cultures
  • Share God’s love in creative, practical ways


What To Expect?

A YWAM DTS is for people of all ages (17+) who are serious about taking their relationship with God to the next level. You’ll be in situations that challenge you and bring out your strengths and weaknesses as you learn to give your all for Jesus. You’ll learn how to hear God and to obey Him. Your relationship with God will be on the fast track!
