What is DTS
A Discipleship Training School, or DTS, is a time set aside to deepen your relationship with God. It's 5 months of your time where you choose to dedicate time spent knowing more of God. You will learn who God is, how to hear His voice, and who you are in Him. Our motto as a mission mission is "to know God and to make Him known." The DTS is comprised of many different activities- teachings, evangelism, small groups, discipleship, and more! Ultimately, we are here to give you lifelong tools that you can use anywhere for the rest of your life as a Christian.
The last two months of the DTS is the outreach phase, which is where you will put everything you learned during the Lecture Phase into practice. The outreach could be anywhere in the world, depending on where God is guiding the team in that particular season. On outreach you will be doing any number of things- working alongside local churches or YWAM bases, street evangelism, refugee camps, orphanages, and so on.
Dates & Costs
Schools start: APRIL, JULY and OCTOBER each year.
Applicants from outside of the UK will need to have a visa to train with us. You will most likely apply for a Tier 5 Religious Worker Visa but as YWAM, we will be your sponsors and walk you through the visa application process after you are accepted into the programme. The price of the visa is £255 for 6 months.
