If you want to be transformed as you fuse your heart with God’s, join with young people from many nations and use your gifts to glorify Jesus, this DTS is for you.
The heart of our DTS is facilitating intimacy with God, embracing all the nations represented and for us all to become bridges connecting different languages and cultures. One way is by having our morning classes in English & Spanish.
The Discipleship Training School is a 6 month, full-immersion experience: moving towards God, to know His heart of love, and to go with Him into the world, to complete His Great Commission.
WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT DTS?
That is worked out through each week in multiple ways, including our Fusion Fridays (worship, freedom & fire!) & in our tracks, where there are more specialised teachings & practices. You choose one track from:
CREATIVITY ARTS TRACK
In this track,you explore your own creativity. We’re created to create and here you have time to feed that part of you. The track includes coaching and mentoring in your creative project until you take risks and have an impact on the Lord that you never thought you could. Exodus 31:1-5 You’ll be encouraged and mentored to approach your creativity as an act of worship. Content of technique training depends on which artistic discipline you want to explore.
COMMUNICATIONS AND PHOTOGRAPHY
In our Communications and Photography track, we will be looking at the basic principles of photography and how to be an effective communicator of the gospel through photography. We’ll look at how to operate a camera, know the main functions (ISO, shutter speed and aperture, light and composition), and more. We’ll learn about what it means to really care about others while using photography, challenging you on how to become an effective storyteller. Together we’ll be looking at how to apply Biblical principles of communication and how to communicate with integrity in a world dominated by relativism and fake news. Our hope is that you learn to use your skill and passion for photography as a tool to reach the nations!
CROSS CULTURAL TRACK
You learn how to be effective in reaching across cultures. This includes a focus on language learning (language depends on outreach location) and how to practically love like Jesus those considered “foreign” or a “outcast”. Phil 2: 2 – 9
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.
FOOTBALL (SOCCER) TRACK
We believe sport can be an avenue for building relationships, discipleship, and sharing the gospel. In this track, we will spend time playing the game and learning to glorify God specifically on the soccer field and team environments. We will explore areas such as how sports can train us in self-discipline, perseverance, fostering positive team environments, competing well, and honouring God with our physical bodies. We will hone our individual football abilities, and learn how to facilitate matches and coach training sessions. Whatever language you speak, football brings people together, and we will learn to use the sport to reach people for Jesus.
Prepare to be transformed and receive a life-changing boost from God to equip you for the rest of your life.

I’m Maytte, I’ve been with YWAM the past 7 years and mostly working with the younger generations. God is constantly increasing my heart for the nations and the lost. I’m passionate about discipleship and seeing young people being restored to their former glory. I love to see people’s potential and champion them to be what God made them to be.
I am so excited about this DTS because I love how much our lives can be transformed when we truly take the time to get to know God intimately. I’ve been blessed to experience that in my own life, and I love seeing it happen in other people’s lives. God continues to grow in me a love for working with people from different cultures and discovering through them the richness that exists in the Kingdom of God. I also enjoy reading, painting, exploring cities at night, and laughing with friends.
