The first 12 weeks of DTS are spent on the campus at YWAM Los Angeles. Students live, study, worship, pray, and work together in our community. Each week focuses on a different area of discipleship teaching. Topics may include, but are not limited to: The Nature and Character of God, Hearing God’s Voice, Prayer and Intercession, Father Heart of God, and Effective Evangelism.
Outreach is a 2-3 month journey into the nations where one continues to know God but the emphasis is on making Him known. Each outreach gives students plenty of opportunities to apply the principles learned during the lecture phase.
All outreaches have three components: evangelism, practical ministry and partnership with local churches and ministries. Our primary outreach locations are Asia, Africa and Central/South America however, your outreach could be anywhere in the world! Outreaches are announced during the lecture phase.
