Discipleship Training School (DTS)

Spend six months being radically transformed.

The DTS is a 6-month program with 3 distinct parts:

Lecture – Part 1

The first 9 weeks are focused on strengthening the foundation of your relationship with the Bible and deepening your understanding of who God is while building friendships and serving those around you. Each week features a new speaker teaching on a topic foundational to your discipleship journey, along with worship and prayer times, local ministry, small group discussion, and activities focused on the elective of your choice.


The next 10 weeks will be spent overseas, taking the message of Jesus to those who don’t know him yet. Most of our outreach teams go to Central or Southeast Asia, North Africa, or the Middle East. Putting into practice what you learned during the lecture phase, you will get to participate in God’s purposes for the places you visit on outreach and share his love with the people you meet.

Lecture – Part 2

The final 4 weeks are focused on equipping you for what’s next after DTS, be that in YWAM, going to college, working a job, or moving overseas long-term. You will see and experience a lot of new things during DTS and as the program comes to a close, we will take time to unpack what you learned and share stories of what God did through you and others during DTS.
