What is a DTs?
The Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS) gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.
The DTS is a six-month program blending classroom learning, small group activities, personal reflection, practical service, and community living.
Most often, the training comes in two parts: the lecture phase and the outreach phase.
Here you will discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus by discovering Him through His Word, His People and His Ways. You’ll not only learn from teachers but also from community living and practical training.
Growth takes place not only in the classroom but in all aspects of life. This is why the DTS Lecture Phase is structured so that the whole experience is a learning environment and opportunity for growth. Small groups, discussions, community outreach, worship times, and more, are all ways that you will have the opportunity to encounter God and be shaped by Him.
The 2-month outreach phase focuses on applying what you learned in the classroom through an intense, cross-cultural experience. It is an adventure with God and an opportunity to practice hearing the voice of God and walking that out.
The outreach phase allows you to immerse yourself in God’s heart for the nations, and to be His hands and feet. We believe that the fuel for missions is intimacy with God; to know God first, then to make Him known.
