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 :
YWAM Orlando is all about a "live-learn" environment geared towards personal transformation.
YWAM Orlando is all about the "live-learn" environment geared towards personal transformation.
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!
Dynamic electives are available that you can add on top of the classic DTS experience. Barista, Bible, Worship, Ekballo, Media, and Sports & Fitness are the ones we currently offer. Learn from experienced staff about how you can use these different passions in meaningful ways for the Kingdom of God!
Room & Board
Your room and board are included in the cost of your tuition or campus fees. We have recently renovated dormitory spaces with a common area for gathering together or relaxing with friends. We provide all your meals and there is a giant salad bar to go along with most lunch and dinner entrees. We like to eat here so don't worry about being hungry!
A majority of your weekends and several weekday evenings will be free. The campus is a great place to hang out. We have a large cafe that students love, and sports facilities where you will often find soccer, ultimate frisbee, volleyball or basketball games happening. Also, we're just an hour from the beach. And of course, can't forget Disney if you've got the $$ to go!
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!
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!
