Honoring God Through Worship
When we gather to worship God, something special happens: He meets us there. We remind one another of the truth of who He is as we sing (or shout!) it out.
Dive Deep into Worship
The Music & Worship DTS incorporates all the elements of our Foundations 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 honoring God with our musical gifts, building in regular opportunities to hone your skills, working together in teams, and learn about leading others in worship.
Real ministry is the overflow of personal relationship with Jesus. Go deeper in our Music & Worship DTS.
- Identity as a musician
- Band dynamics
- Humility and leadership
- Developing a worshiping culture
- Leading corporate worship
During your DTS outreach, you’ll take 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.

- Expand your concept of who God is as we pursue Him together in worship and prayer.
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."
