Discipleship Training School (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. The course is a full-time program and lasts six months. It consists of two parts: lectures and outreach.
Start out with 12 weeks of focused, intensive discipleship in our missions community. You and your classmates will explore a range of topics, guided by experienced local and international missions practitioners. Every week will address areas related to following Jesus in life and character, personal relationship with God and missions.
One of the most important aspects of our base, and YWAM in general is our multi-nationalities. DTS attracts youth from many different parts of the world and brings them into a place where they can share and learn not only about God, but one another’s cultures.
Encounter God like never before. This is your time to personally get to know Him more and how He does things. As you discover all of life from God’s perspective, He will show you who you are in Him and who He has made you to be.
Outreach teams go and serve the lost wherever they are, and share the hope of Christ in many ways: evangelism, discipleship, sports, drama, youth ministry, teaching, music, practical service, prayer, media, healthcare – we do it all.
Teams regularly partner with local churches and YWAM ministries to strengthen their ministry and provide for follow up discipleship. Your final week will be spent back in Biarritz, de-briefing and being equipped to continue with everything that God has done in your life over the six months.
