Ignite your faith. Ignite the nations.
Ignite your faith. Ignite the nations.
We believe that God is wanting to use young people to impact and reach the nations by using their gifts and talents to expand His Kingdom. Come and deepen your relationship with God as we gather to be trained and equipped to live a lifestyle of missions and obedience. Expect God to heal, restore and ignite your faith during this time.
This is one DTS but with 4 differently focused tracks; FRONTIER MISSIONS, SPORTS, PHOTOGRAPHY & COMMUNICATIONS and BARISTA & ENTREPRENEURS. As one DTS, we will gather for lectures from teachers from around the world, engage in worship and prayer together, process and discuss what God is doing in small groups, and love our neighbours in our local outreach time. During the lecture phase of the school, we will gather for a couple hours each week in our track groups to explore, through teachings, group projects and activities, how we can further use our passions to ignite the nations with God’s love.
As a YWAM DTS our main focus will always be missions and discipleship, so as we go out on outreach we will look at how we can use our passions for the tracks to impact the nations and build His Kingdom. Join us and get ready to experience growth, adventure, challenge and so much more as we journey together with God.
Can you imagine what God can do in and through you in just 6 months?

CHECK OUT OUR TRACKS BELOW
FRONTIER MISSIONS TRACK
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. Our hope is that you come away with more of God's heart for the nations and that you will see where you fit into the Great Commission!x
In our Sports Track we will be exploring how we can develop and use our skills and passions for sport to build community, promote positive identity and to see how we can use sporting activities to reach the nations with the good news of Jesus. We will explore things like; a Biblical basis for sport, teamwork, and using sports in evangelism. During the lecture phase of the DTS we will study and play together often and engage with local sports teams. We will then put these skills into practice on outreach and use them to tell people about the good news of Jesus. Our hope is that the DTS & track will be the continuation of an adventurous life of knowing and going with God to the ends of the earth, and the bridge between sport and Christ and how to use your passions for His glory.x
PHOTOGRAPHY & COMMUNICATIONS TRACK
In our Photography and Communications 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 story teller. 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!x
BARISTA & ENTREPRENEURS TRACK
In our Barista & Entrepreneurial Track we will dive in by learning about growing, processing, making and serving coffee. We'll hear from industry experts, visit roasters in London, get a Barista certification and learn of outreach/internship opportunities in London and abroad. Instead of just learning how to make coffee, we'll also help you understand how to run a business, how to market, how to raise capital and how manage the books in case you wish to begin your own in your town or in Timbuktu. Our hope is that you’ll grow in understanding of business as a Holy calling and a cafe as one practical expression of that calling that can provide a legitimate pathway to reach other nations for Jesus.x
ARE YOU READY TO SAY YES TO THE CALL?
Recent outreach locations have been Albania, Uganda, the Middle East and Greece (refugee crisis).
