My DTS Was Worth the Risk

When I joined my YWAM Discipleship Training School (DTS) my faith wasn’t strong. My motives probably weren’t the greatest either; I was just looking for an adventure and since I grew up going to church DTS seemed like the obvious outlet. I was scared that I and my bad motives were going to be discovered, so I put on my most holy foot forward and faked being a more serious Christian than I really was.

But that didn’t last long. I remember the first week of my DTS was focused on what it really means to follow Jesus and to be totally bought in. I was amazed by the stories of my fellow students and the crazy journey of faith that they were on. A new kind of excitement started stirring inside of me, I wanted this life and I wanted to always be a part of this kind of community. These amazing friends, staff, and even the speakers poured into my life with love and joy – zero judgement. It was a new kind of joy and happiness.

It had taken me a lifetime of bad decisions to be so complacent in my faith and there was no switch I could flip to be a legendary Christian right away. Nevertheless, through those months in DTS a story started unfolding in my own life. It was the first domino and I never could have imagined how I have changed, become a more authentic person, and lived such a life of adventure and hope that I’ve found following Jesus all over the globe in my journey in YWAM since DTS.

DTS was worth it all; the money, the vulnerability, the time. It’s a chance for the authenticity and purity that our generation is looking for to be unlocked. DTS is worth the risk.
