What is a Discipleship Training School (DTS)?

classroomdts400The Discipleship Training School is a five month, hands-on Christian training program with a lecture phase followed by an outreach phase. The DTS provides you with an opportunity to take time away from the normal pressures and routine of life so you have to time to focus entirely on Jesus and how you will be a part of His Great Commission to “Go and make disciples of all Nations” (Matthew 28:18-20). The program teaches you how to build disciplines into your life,  develop personal character, and lead a lifestyle of expressing God’s love to others, such that knowing God, you want to make Him known to others.

The DTS is also a great place to make new friends as you live and learn together in community.  We emphasize regional and even global awareness while living in multi or cross-cultural community so we can all learn from one another. This cross-cultural environment helps prepare you for the rigors needed to boldly go and be Ambassadors for Christ (II Cor 5:20).   DTS is only the beginning.  Once successfully trained, you qualify to apply for many more opportunities with YWAM including staff positions and other YWAM training programs.

DTS qualifies towards a degree with the University of the Nations.

Pray about it. Maybe five months with us is part of God’s exciting plan for your life!
