The YWAM Discipleship Training School is a 5-month journey that moves one from being a believer to being a disciple. The YWAM DTS was prayerfully designed to be a place where you can know God, make Him known, and own your own faith. You can grow in your faith through lectures and practical application of what you learn in a Discipleship community.
How does this enhance your DTS experience? In the lecture phase of a DTS, students and staff alike reach a point where they are on the edge of their chairs in the classroom, longing to get on outreach. Running this DTS in an outreach location will mean your learning is embedded in a missional context rather than the classroom. You will learn on the field! This unique setting will completely remove the walls off of your classroom and you will learn about missions while you are on mission!
In Youth With A Mission (YWAM), we believe everyone should do a Discipleship Training School (DTS). A Discipleship Training School helps you to know who God is and prepares you to help other people know Him too. Practice authentic community by learning, worshiping, praying, and serving others with people from different nations, walks of life and cultures!Practice authentic community by learning, worshiping, praying, and serving others with people from different nations, walks of life and cultures! Deepen your understanding of God’s character, see Him move, hear His voice, and grow in faith as you step out in bold obedience to follow him.
Every week you will hear from world-class speakers on various topics that equip you for discipleship and practical Christian living. Dive deep into knowing who God is. Go make Him known. Break the traditional classroom walls and learn on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Apply what you've learned and spend two months in ministry during your field assignment.
In Matthew’s gospel, Jesus commands that we go and disciple all nations. In YWAM we believe that discipleship is not complete until you begin to disciple others. On your field assignment, you will be in a different “classroom” and grow in your discipleship through service. The heart, knowledge, and skills you have gained over the lecture phase can be shared with communities desperately in need of God’s love and empowerment. You will see God moving in the nations while catching different glimpses of Him through the diversity of how He is refelcted in different cultures.
Running this school in a location by the Mediterranean will give DTS students the perspective of a five-month field assignment! When the time comes to divide the school into smaller teams and head out into the nations you will already be equipped and ready to go! The Field Assignment phase is the two-month portion of the DTS when you and your team get to serve in another country in the region. Each team is unique depending on where you go. Your ministry will adapt to meet the needs of the local environment and have a heavy emphasis on sharing your faith. In the Mediterranean DTS we want to see waves of missionaries come from and go to the Middle East, seeing the region transformed.
