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?

CHECK OUT OUR TRACKS BELOW
COMMUNICATIONS & PHOTOGRAPHY TRACK
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 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
The Worship track is designed to raise up Christ-centered songwriters, musicians and worship leaders who create new expressions of God’s heart in excellence. We’ll have speakers coming in from all over the UK, providing practical applications and explanations of how to cultivate a leader’s role and character. This track will dive into songwriting, providing times for music lessons and opportunities to be in a band and create worship sets. We’ll also spend time in the music studio understanding what the creative process looks like. We want you to come away feeling inspired and empowered with your God-given gifts to impact the world around you.x
BUSINESS AS MISSIONS
In the Business As Missions Track we will explore God’s heart for business. We will take a deeper look at God’s design, why business matters, how God’s character is exemplified through business and what God communicates through business. We will explore how man is made to work and when he does work, how he/she expresses more of their true nature. Lastly, we will see how business is part of God’s redemptive plan for the nations. We will hear from entrepreneurs, business leaders, deep thinkers on the subject and wrestle with the implications of good and bad examples of business. We will lean upon case studies, articles and inspiring movies along the way.x
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
ARE YOU READY TO SAY YES TO THE CALL?
Recent outreach locations have been Albania, Uganda, the Middle East, the Himalayas and Greece (refugee crisis).
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.
