As we prayed about this DTS we felt to partner with several YWAM locations in Los Angeles county. These include YWAM Los Angeles, YWAM Long Beach, and even YWAM Catalina! Santa Catalina is an island just 22 miles off the coast of Southern California and our school will have the opportunity to spend a few weeks there during our lecture phase. Our heart in this partnership is to join together with communities of believers to make an even greater impact in the Los Angeles area and the nations around the world. With all that being said, we are excited to announce the name of this school: LA Coast DTS!
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.
