YWAM DTS & TrainingCreate DTS

Our God is a Creator, and our God-given creativity reflects him to the world around us. Discover God’s heart for you as an artist in the Create DTS and learn how to display his beauty in a broken world.

The Create DTS is for visual artists of any skill level who want to grow in their craft as they grow in knowing Jesus. This DTS incorporates all the elements of a classic 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.

Topics include:

  • Identity as an artist
  • Worship with visual arts
  • Excellence and creativity
  • Our call to reflect God
  • Humility
  • Confidence
  • Art in evangelism
  • And more!

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 action 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.

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. Destinations vary, but recent DTS YWAM teams have ministered in India, South Africa, Ukraine, and a few restricted-access nations that it’s better not to mention here.
