DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL
The Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS) seeks to bring you into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.
The course is a full-time program and lasts five to six months. It consists of two parts: lecture phase and outreach phase. In the lecture phase, you will learn more about God and His world. You’ll learn not only from lectures but also from community living and practical training. The outreach phase focuses on applying what you learned in the classroom through an intense, cross-cultural experience.
Lecture phase lasts 11-12 and takes place on our YWAM Puerto Viejo base. You will receive powerful teaching from motivating speakers and missionaries, meant to provoke, challenge, and encourage. Topics like hearing the voice of God, identity, sin and forgiveness, and much more are discussed.
The DTS outreach phase will give you the opportunity to apply the principles you learned during your lectures. You can put your new perspective into action by sharing God’s truth in different places all around the world. The goal is to share the love of God which you have experienced in your own life.
