DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL

YWAM Discipleship Training School Orlando, Florida

The Discipleship Training School (YWAM-DTS) is a five-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 three 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.

UNIVERSITY DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL

Untitled design-2

We are excited to offer our very first University Discipleship Training School! You don’t have to wait until after college or take time off from school to do DTS! Whaaaat?! That’s right.

The University DTS is made to fit the lecture phase of DTS into your summer break. Then the following summer (a year later), you return for the outreach phase of DTS with your same crew from the year before.

You won’t miss a beat when it comes to your college education and you will add a wealth of maturity and experience to your faith through the process!

The dates for this DTS are different from our regular summer quarter in order to fit in with the typical college summer break.

UPCOMING DATES

May 13th - August 3rd

*This is the start date of the 2017 University DTS's outreach AND the start date of the 2018 University DTS's lecture phase.

CROSSROADS DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL

The Crossroads DTS (YWAM-CDTS), offered in the Winter, is especially geared towards those who are thirty years and older with a little more life experience under their belt.

It still contains core DTS teachings, but is designed to help you go deeper with the Lord where you are at and be refreshed in His purpose and vision for your life. Just like the classic DTS, it’s a three month lecture phase on our campus and then two months of overseas outreach.

We understand for many at the professional age it can be hard to get away for an entire five months. So when you apply for the Crossroads DTS, you can either opt to do your two month outreach immediately following the lecture phase (recommended if possible) OR you can return the following winter to complete the outreach.

The Crossroads DTS will be merged with our classic DTS that takes place in the Winter.  While this means you will be surrounded by people of all generations, you will have staff, leaders, and teachers that can relate more specifically to you and your life experience.

Plus did we mention Florida is beautiful in the winter time?!

WINTER LECTURE: January 8, 2018 - March 30, 2018

You may opt to do the outreach right away and return and graduate your DTS May 25, 2018. Or you could return the following January (2019) for the two month outreach. Exact dates to be determined.
