God is catalysing this generation to fearlessly go to the ends of the earth as bearers of hope.
FROM THE GREAT COMMANDMENT TO THE GREAT COMMISSION
God’s presence changes everything. As we lean into Him we see His power released. God has made prayer and missions inseparable. Join us as we press into Him and see the nations of the world transformed.
DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL
The Discipleship Training School (DTS) was created to help you discover your place in fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20). YWAM DTS is an intense full-time program, lasting 6 months. You will start with 3 months of training phase before being launched out into the nations to share Jesus with the lost, broken and outcast.
OUR DNA – WORSHIP & PRAYER TO MISSIONS
Worship and prayer is the engine room to all we do. Through intimacy with Jesus we see Him move radically in our lives and throughout the nations. Expect to be stretched in extended rhythms of corporate worship and prayer within our campus prayer room. From that place burn with a fire inside to do the works of the Kingdom whenever and wherever He calls.
Catalyst DTS includes 7 focused tracks: Frontier Missions, Prayer Room, Barista, Culinary, Media Track, Early Years Education and Children and Youth. Although you’ll spend most of your time together as a whole school, each week you will have the opportunity to develop your skills and passion within a track of your choice.
Choose a track and develop your skills and passions.
In our Frontier Missions Track we will look at what it means to GO to the nations! We will spend time learning from and engaging with those who are reaching some of the least reached here in our community and abroad. This is to prepare you for the people groups, cultures, and beliefs you will encounter on outreach and wherever God calls you to after DTS. You will come away with more of God’s heart for the nations and see the bigger picture of where you fit into the Great Commission!
PRAYER ROOM (MUSIC)
If you look back to past revivals you see that everyone was proceeded by a movement of prayer and worship. We believe that God is longing to pour out his spirit on the nations, we want to be a people that are ready when it comes.
PrayerRoom track exists to train and equip singers, musicians, and anyone else who burns to see a move of God. We are going to give you practical tools, in depth biblical teaching, and real time experience in worship and prayer leading. Come catch a burning heart and fall more in love with Jesus.
Jesus broke bread with different people as a ministry. It was powerful in reaching people with the gospel. The Culinary Track is an experience in using food to see the kingdom of God advanced. Equipping you with cooking and hospitality skills for a lifetime. Teachers and cooks will share on various topics. Including, but not limited to: food cultures, global cuisine, hospitality, and evangelism. Whether you are an experienced cook or want to learn and grow in a new skill join us.

Ignite your passion for coffee and people in the Barista Track. We are dedicated to serving others, pursuing excellence in our craft, and fostering a vibrant community across nations through the art of coffee. Over the course, our group sessions will encompass a wide range of topics, including Biblical hospitality, customer care, coffee origins, processing techniques, brewing methods, and taste profiles. And you’ll have the opportunity to get hands-on experience behind the bar working side-by-side with our team, serving in our very own Oval Cafe on base.
Ultimately our goal is for you to learn new skills, refine existing ones, and embrace God’s heart for others through acts of hospitality, service, and skillfully crafted beverages as you explore using coffee to see the Kingdom of God advanced. The Barista Track is your gateway to connecting coffee and ministry.
