DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL
The Discipleship Training School (YWAM-DTS) is a 5-month adventure with God that will change your life, open your eyes, and give you a fresh understanding of God and His love for all people!
Your DTS starts with 3 months of classroom time (training) on-campus at YWAM Orlando. Every week you get to learn something brand new; teachers we trust from around the world come to Orlando to be part of this adventure with you! Your weeks will include class, worship, prayer, intercession for the Nations, and spending time with the hilarious, encouraging, beautiful YWAM Orlando community.
Once you’ve finished your training, it’s on to the next adventure - outreach! Your last two months of the DTS will be spent overseas (with your outreach team, of course), applying all that training you just got.
Interest tracks are an opportunity to invest in the things that interest you most, and use your skills/gifts/passions to serve the Lord! Below are the five interest tracks we offer, in addition to the classic DTS. Find out more about Interest Tracks by clicking one of the photos below.
