CAMPUS PHASE

Your DTS starts with three months of training and discipleship on-campus at YWAM Orlando. Every week you get to learn something new as teachers we trust from around the world come to Orlando to be part of this adventure with you. We have made an intentional environment for growth - fueled by things like daily worship, dynamic teachings, prayer, and local outreach. Basically, it's like a giant Jesus greenhouse!

Each week is about a different topic. Some of the topics are :

Biblical Worldview & Overview

Knowing God & Hearing Him

Identity & Relationships

World Missions & Evangelism

YWAM Orlando is all about a "live-learn" environment geared towards personal transformation.

Worship

At YWAM Orlando we start every day, seeking Him in the place of worship - with no agenda, a few songs, and a whole lot of openness to whatever He wants to speak. Many students find that some of their most significant moments in DTS happen in the midst of one of these times!

Elecitves

Dynamic electives are available that you can add on top of the classic DTS experience. We currently offer Barista, Bible, Worship, Ekballo, Photography, and Sports & Fitness electives. Learn from experienced staff about how you can use these different passions in meaningful ways for the Kingdom of God! 

Worship

At YWAM Orlando we start every day, all together, seeking Him in the place of musical worship - with no agenda, a few songs, and a whole lot of openness to whatever He wants to speak. Little did we know the richness and depth that would instill in our community. Many students find that some of their most significant moments in DTS happen in the midst of one of these times!

Room & Board

Your room and board are included in the cost of your fees. We have recently renovated dormitory spaces with a common area for gathering and relaxing. We provide all meals and there is a stocked salad bar to go along with most of them. Click here to read more about dorm life at YWAM Orlando.

Gap Year

Turn the DTS into a gap year experience by combining it with another one of our training and missions experiences! Read more about what that could look like here.

Free Time

Most weekends and several weekday evenings will be free. The campus is a great place to hang out. Grab a coffee at the cafe, do laundry, or head out to the sports facilities where you will often find soccer, ultimate frisbee, volleyball or basketball game happening. Also, we're just an hour from the beach and 30 minutes from Disney!

Local Outreach

During the campus phase portion of DTS we participate regularly in different forms of local outreach. We have many incredible opportunities to invest in our community! Yes, we go to the nations but we also recognize the nations are right outside our door here in Orlando. What a perfect opportunity to share the love of Jesus!

OUTREACH PHASE

Once you’ve finished your training here in Orlando, 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 the training that you just received. For two months you get to put into practice what you learned in Orlando; you will share the Gospel, experience the power of prayer, develop your ability to hear the voice of God, and see the world the way God does!

Some of the places we frequently go to for outreach are: The Caribbean, Mexico, Thailand, Indonesia, South Africa, The Middle East, Central Aisa, India, and Japan.  

The ministry will always be Spirit-led and, depending on the location, could involve things like children's ministry, evangelism, praying for healing, service projects, sports ministry, and teaching English. 

Most days on outreach will be split between ministry and team time. Team time provides an opportunity for the team to gather, pray, and worship together. It's also a chance for outreach leaders to process with members of the team about how outreach is going.

Outreach is not tourism, but there are days on outreach devoted to rest and fun. There are usually a couple of days on any outreach set aside for sightseeing and shopping (don't forget a souvenir for mom and dad!).

Outreach concludes with a time of debriefing and processing with your team when you return to Orlando. Then your DTS ends with a celebratory graduation ceremony that family and friends are invited to attend. You will have tons to celebrate because of what God did IN and THROUGH you in these five months!
