“Start your journey with God in Missions. Apply for one of our Discipleship Training Schools today.”

 

 

Encounter Discipleship Training School (DTS) is a five-month program that inspires students to have radical faith as they encounter God and learn to make Him known.

 

For the past 40+ years, YWAM DTS’s has existed to help individuals develop a personal, intimate relationship with God, so they can make Him known in the nations. Students will learn to walk in their identity in Christ, as well as how to share the hope of Jesus with the lost. DTS is for anyone who longs to follow Jesus and give Him everything they are. Come see Jesus, yourself, and the world with Christ’s perspective.

Lecture Phase

Our Encounter DTS will give you a place to discover your God-given passions, as well as the part you were made to play in God’s divine purposes. Lecture phase is filled with new discoveries about yourself, God, and His world. Times of personal devotion and the corporate pursuit of God will give you even more opportunity to encounter His presence, and learn the lessons He is longing to teach you. This school will provoke, challenge, and encourage you to grow in your faith and deepen your friendship with God. 

As a part of the Encounter DTS you will choose a Focus. You have the opportunity to choose a Focus that matches your interests and calling. See the Focus options listed below!

Outreach Phase

Outreach phase focuses on applying what you’ve learned during Lectures through a 2 month cross-cultural experience. This time will provide opportunities to boldly evangelize, encourage the local church and persecuted believers, and pray and worship over the nation. Share the testimonies of how Jesus has changed your life as you invite the lost into the same loving relationship with the Father. The mission is to take Christ’s message of hope around the world.

We cannot guarantee that each DTS Focus will have an outreach associated with it as an option. Factors outside our control such as culture, event coordination, and ministry contact preferences that will affect what is possible.
