DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL

THE IS A FULL-TIME DISCIPLESHIP INTENSIVE COURSE THAT LASTS FIVE MONTHS. IT CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS:
The first 11 weeks of DTS are spent on the campus at YWAM Los Angeles living in community, worshipping, praying, serving, and studying God’s character. Each week, you will soak in teachings from outstanding speakers regarding your unique calling and God’s limitless attributes. Our DTS’ offers different focuses that will allow you to develop your specific dreams alongside like minded individuals. In your focus you will cultivate skills and vision through weekly break out sessions and one full week of teaching dedicated to the focus you choose. Not only will you be poured into, but you will have a chance to bring the hope of Jesus through creativity, prayer, worship, and outreach within your focus area to those living in Los Angeles. You will come face to face with a Father that loves deeply, calls you higher, and sends you to be His messenger.
Following the Lecture phase, you will take a 2 month journey being God’s hands and feet to the nations during the outreach phase. The love of God will ignite the flame in your heart to reach the lost, heal the sick, and see His power released. All outreaches have three components: evangelism, practical ministry and partnership with local churches and ministries. You will embark on an adventure working with the followers of Jesus who make God’s name known to every lost soul. Outreach is an exciting time to be Christ’s ambassadors, meet those caught in darkness, and bring them to the feet of Jesus. Each DTS track will be sent to different locations around the globe. You will see God’s presence unleashed firsthand and partner with Him in impacting society with the revelation of His reckless love.

Word and Worship
God is searching for people who will follow Him in Spirit and in truth. During this track, students will have the opportunity to worship God in Spirit or be educated in studying, teaching, and preaching the Bible. Workshops in songwriting, singing, and instruments will be provided for those who are passionate about learning who God is through worship. On the other hand, workshops in unpacking the Bible, teaching God’s truth, and preaching His words to many will equip students to walk in truth. The WWDTS is a chance to step out and learn about who God is in Spirit and in truth.
Our mission is to respond to a hurting world by ministering out of the compassionate heart of the Father. We come alongside and share the love of God with those who are in spiritual, economic, and physical poverty. A love that is not just with limited human sympathy and emotion, but through the heart of the Father, eternally aching for justice, redemption, and hope for His children. This true compassion for another fuels acts of kindness and mercy.
Sports DTS is a Christian intensive discipleship course, with a lecture phase of 11 weeks followed by the outreach phase of another 9 weeks on the missionfield. It is a prerequisite for several other missionary training and preparation possibilities within the College of Sports and Fitness at the University of the Nations. Designed to encourage students in personal character development by cultivating their relationship with God and identifying the call to missionary vocation. In this DTS we will have a special emphasis on acting on sports and through it, in a cross-cultural way, preparing students to disciple the present and future generations, responding to the call: “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19)
This focus equips students with the knowledge and opportunity needed to take a long-term stand against human trafficking locally and globally. Students will have the opportunity to learn about and experience ministry in the areas of trafficking prevention, outreach to victims, and recovery for those who have been exploited. This is an incredible opportunity to determine what type of ministry you are called to and how to use your gifts and passions in ministry.
Urban And Arts
The Urban & Arts focus is an invitation for you to reach out to the lost and hurting people of our world through the creative arts. God being the creator himself has given each and every one of us a desire to create. We all bring something unique and different to the table. The world’s population is moving into cities at a growing rate and we want to see God’s people come together, using the gifts He’s given us, to bring light and truth into the urban areas of our world.
Have you ever wondered why we are not sent to heaven right after surrendering our lives to God? God sent His son Jesus to die on the cross not only to save you from death, but to use you as a vessel to bring others into life with Him. This is our mission. This is our purpose. Jesus’ last words were, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” The Revivalist focus allows students to participate in effective evangelism, powerful worship, interceding for the broken, and going after the individuals God pursues. Our passion is for the one. Be part of the revival. Let’s bring them home.
