Dive Deep into Leadership

The Leadership DTS incorporates all the elements of our classic YWAM Discipleship Training School: personal relationship with God, knowing His character, 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 developing leadership skills. You’ll work with seasoned leaders to learn about styles of leadership, the value of humility, communication with a diversity of personalities, and so much more.

Topics include:

  • Humility 
  • Leadership styles
  • Influence 
  • Learning to follow
  • Communication
  • Teamwork

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.
