Know God, Make Him Known

Come encounter Jesus in this five-month Discipleship Training School (DTS) designed as a time set aside for you to seek God’s face, hear His voice, and discover who He has created you to be. 

Our vision is for you to be in an environment where you can be radically transformed by the power of God’s love, from one encounter to the next. It is in God’s presence that you will be established and raised up to be released to follow Jesus into the hardest and darkest places as you gain His heart for the Nations.

During your lecture phase you will receive impartation and teaching from leaders and missionaries in the Body of Christ on life-transforming topics. You’ll discover more about God and His world through lectures on God’s character and nature, worship and intercession, the Father heart of God, the Holy Spirit, evangelism, and more! Our desire is for you to grow in identity and wholeness as you encounter the powerful love of God. Our vision is for you to grow in love and passion for God’s presence through the lectures, conferences, community living, and time in worship, prayer, and outreach to the lost.

Outreach phase gives you an opportunity to apply what you have received and learned from the lecture phase in an intense, cross-cultural experience in the Middle East, North Africa, Southeast Asia, or (select) European countries. Expect God to move powerfully in and through you as you become His hands and feet to reach a lost and dying world with the transforming love and gospel of Jesus Christ. See how God wants to use you creatively and uniquely with the special gifts, passions and talents He has given you, in order to “seek and save that which is lost” (Luke 19:10).

Tracks

A track is an additional focus within your Encounter DTS designed to connect you with people of similar passions. It is entirely optional. Regardless of track choice all students will remain together for regular weekly lectures. Tracks meet once per week for special activities and teachings, and will take part in a “Track Week” planned by your track leader. If you decide to opt out of tracks you will have this night each week free and will have an alternative schedule during the Track Week.

Outreach Phase Cost:

There are many potential locations where we may send an outreach. All outreach locations are prayerfully chosen for every school. If you choose to only go to one nation for outreach, the cost will range from about $3,000-$4,000, depending on the nation.

Explorer’s Outreach: Quench your thirst for adventure as you travel to up to 3 different nations and experience unique cultures as you bring the gospel and the love of Christ to the lost. If you choose to embark on the Explorer’s Outreach (when offered) expect the cost to be around $5,000. Please inquire with our registrar to see if this outreach will be offered in your DTS.

Outreach costs vary depending on location, therefore these are estimates; exact costs will be announced within the DTS.

 

In YWAM we have a strong culture of depending upon the Lord for provision. We are convinced that if God gives the call, He will provide the means for us to move. We encourage you to pray about how to partner with others in raising support, knowing that it is ultimately up to the Lord to provide the way for the mission He is calling you to! If you have any questions or concerns about support raising please feel free to contact us.

We value community living, and we seek to follow the New Testament church, as a family united in heart and purpose. We live, eat, explore, and do life together, on and off-base. Expect lifelong friendships and memories from living life together.
We will provide pickup and transportation when you fly into Redding Municipal Airport. If you are traveling from outside the US and prefer to fly into San Francisco, please contact us about other options. Our school registrar will inform you of times to book your tickets.
