YWAM DTS & TrainingFoundations DTS

Our YWAM Foundations DTS (Discipleship Training School) is a five-month, in-depth discipleship program that includes a 12-week teaching phase followed by an eight-week mission trip. It’s a “heart-change” course designed to give you a solid foundation of personal growth and relationship with Jesus. Whether you’re interested in career missions or in simply taking time to get to know God better, our DTS is for you.

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.
