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 Being a Disciple of Jesus, Knowing God, Fulfilling the Great Commission, and so much more! You’ll live out these foundational principles in a community giving their all to seek after Jesus, daily putting into practice what you learn in the classroom.


  • Deepen your relationship with God
  • Learn the story of God and your place in it
  • Make lifelong friends from all over the world


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. See lives changed, hearts transformed, and Christ’s Kingdom coming to Earth.


  • Share God’s love in creative, practical ways
  • Experience other cultures
  • Encounter God’s heart for the nations
