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 four differently focused tracks; Communications and Photography, Worship, Business As Missions (BAM), Frontier Missions. 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 of 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?

I was born and raised in sunny California but due to my love of tea, jumpers, and the rain have found myself living in England! I was a part of the September 2013 DTS here in Harpenden. My life was so radically transformed during that time I knew I wanted to come back on staff and be a part of that journey with others. In my time with YWAM I have staffed a number of DTS’s and completed a Discipleship Bible School, learning more about God’s redemptive plan through the story of the bible. I believe DTS is an amazing opportunity to learn about how each of us fit into that redemptive plan as we understand more about who God is and who He created us to be. I love seeing people encounter God in new ways and am so excited for what He has in store for the next Ignite DTS!

Hey! I was born here in England and did my DTS in YWAM Harpenden. I felt the calling to give my all to disciple and train young people to live fully in their true identity as sons and daughters of God and see lives transformed by God’s love. I’ve staffed four DTS’s and I’m super passionate about soaking in God’s presence in worship. As well as, enabling others to be able to hear God’s voice and obey wherever it may take them. Oh yeah, I also love dirty chai’s, longboarding and jazz/funk music.
