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.
- Leadership styles
- Learning to follow
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."
