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 or 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.

A DTS is the requirement not only for joining the YWAM staff team, but also for YWAM second-level  schools. It is also accredited through the YWAM University of the Nations.



The Lecture Phase is a time of training to be equipped for the final Outreach Phase. This time of training will consist of teachings given by speakers from all over the world on varying topics to help you grow stronger in your faith in and knowledge of God. Some topics that will be covered include: The father heart of God | Biblical Worldview | Character & Nature of God |Hearing God’s Voice | Cultural Mandate/Kingdom of God | Spiritual Warfare | Sin, Repentance and Restitution | Relinquishing Rights | Person and Work of the holy Spirit

Other activities that will help you encounter God & also bring you closer to others:

Worship| Intercession| Small Groups Discussions| One-On-Ones| Work Duties| Local Evangelism| Journal & Book Report


THE outreach phase

 After the 3 month lecture phase, teams go out on an evangelistic outreach. On outreach, a student will do street evangelism, serve in churches and participate in other types of ministry. Outreach locations may be in Ghana and/or overseas. 

Through this time of outreach, you will practically serve these vulnerable people via other Justice Ministries and also see the kingdom of God further advanced in the nations. It’s a chance to say “Yes” to God and faithfully step out to experience how He wants to work in and through you to touch the lives of others.
