Hear from world-class speakers from all over North America, who represent years of proven missionary experience on the field. Gain firm biblical foundations that you will apply to your own life and ministry wherever God takes you. Grow in your relationship with God and see how that impacts your reaching out to others.
But DTS is not just about what happens in the classroom. Our live-learn training philosophy is based on having an environment where students, staff, teachers and families eat, study, work, and play in close proximity for maximized learning and mentoring opportunities. We sharpen each other, and learn to appreciate one another’s cultures and perspectives. Accommodation and dining for students, staff and volunteers is right on campus.
Following the lecture phase will be 7 to 8 weeks of outreach, often to Asia or Africa, and 2 weeks of outreach in North America. This is not Christian tourism, but a physically, spiritually and emotionally challenging journey that provides a glimpse of cross-cultural missions as you serve alongside local believers, existing ministries, and long-term missionaries.
Your team will apply the skills you’ve learned during Lecture Phase. An especially important aspect to a YWAM DTS outreach is reaching the lost. There will be diverse opportunities for service, but at the end of the day the goal of every outreach is to make God known in all the nations of the earth.
