Express Your Creativity While Worshiping God
The Create DTS is for visual artists of any skill level who want to grow in their craft as they grow in knowing Jesus.
Dive Deep into Your Creativity
This DTS incorporates all the elements of a Foundations YWAM Discipleship Training School: personal relationship with God, knowing his character, growing in humility and obedience, discovering who He’s made you to be, living that out in relationship with others, and so much more. It adds an emphasis on using what we create to worship God, reveal His heart, and express yourself to Him and others. You’ll develop skill and grow in confidence as you learn how your artistic ability can further the kingdom.
God the great Artist has made you His masterpiece. Learn how to use your creative gifts for His glory in the Create DTS.
- Identity as an artist
- Worship with visual arts
- Excellence and creativity

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.

What people say
"DTS changed my view of God. I didn't understand how personal He was, but God showed me that He wanted to be involved in every part of my life."
“In India I stepped out and shared my life story with a family and the father ended up giving his life to Christ.”
“On my DTS outreach God showed me the importance of taking advantage of every ministry opportunity He gives me, no matter where I am…whether here in a park in Louisville or in the townships of South Africa. He will always use our obedience.”
"During my DTS outreach I felt prompted to tell “Ashley” that God was her loving father. I obeyed and was surprised when she started crying and said this was exactly what she needed to hear in that moment. I am still amazed when God uses me."
