Develop Your Teamwork Skills

Join us in Louisville and use your passion for basketball to reach our neighbors and the nations. The basketball elective will enable you to connect with people on and off the court through the game you love.


Dive Deep into Basketball

The Basektball DTS includes all the standard elements of DTS. We’ll train you in hearing the voice of God, intercessory prayer, humility, forgiveness, healthy relationships, and so much more. The basketball focus is an add-on to help you develop teamwork and skill while investing in the lives of others. You’ll even have opportunity to use basketball in ministry overseas!

Topics include:

  • Godly character as an athlete
  • Sharing the gospel through basketball
  • Humility on and off the court
  • Healthy competition

Hands-on Ministry

You’ll take the next eight-weeks to engage the nations with the Gospel. You and your team will meet both practical and spiritual needs as you share Jesus in a strategic overseas location. Recent DTS YWAM teams have ministered in India, South Africa, Ukraine, and Egypt. Locations vary and the possibilities are endless.


Real Life Change

The first twelve-weeks of a YWAM DTS are saturated with life-changing teaching and discipleship. And that’s just the beginning! Learning extends beyond the classroom as you’re immersed in our missionary community.

  • Kick off each day with personal time with Jesus.
  • Discover your giftings in actions as you minister with us in our city.
  • Follow Jesus in a way that’s gritty and authentic as you live out the truth you’re learning alongside like-minded people.
  • Forge lasting friendships through a community environment and small group accountability.
  • Expand your concept of who God is as we pursue Him together in worship and prayer.
