Hands on mission training.

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) is designed to help you understand God more deeply, live more like Jesus and identify your unique gifts and purpose to use in missions. DTS is an intensive course which begins with a residential part followed by followed by an 8-12 week outreach. DTS emphasises cross-cultural exposure and global awareness, preparing students to answer the call to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations” Matthew 28:19.

There is also the Multi-Generational DTS which caters for all ages including families with children, or the Crossroads Discipleship Training School that focuses on the needs and concerns of trainees over age 30, such as second-career people. The Discipleship Training School is a requirement for applying as YWAM staff, and serves as a prerequisite to all other training programmes. The DTS happens at  YWAM locations all over England. Some schools have a special focus on particular areas of ministry or nations.
