What Is A DTS?

Discipleship Training School is a five-month course in a live/learn community where you spend time getting to know God and His purpose for your life. Lecture Phase, the first three months, consists of class time, local outreach, elective tracks, worship, and fellowship. The last two months, Outreach Phase, allows you to walk out what you have learned in the Lecture Phase by going, serving, and reaching others with the love of God. 

Come and discover your purpose and impact people, communities, and nations.

Class

Class time is an opportunity to learn from gifted speakers on topics such as the Nature and Character of God, Hearing God's voice, Destiny, and more!

Live/Learn Community

Our hope at YWAM Wylie is that in our live/learn community setting, you will not only gain knowledge but you discover how to apply it and reflect the image of Christ.

Community Responsibilities​

Students will be assigned tasks around the base to get plugged in and do their part in our community, whether on grounds, in the kitchen, or with housekeeping.​

Local Outreach​

We are very involved in our local community. Each week, we spend time pouring into those around us through building projects, tutoring local youth, and evangelizing.​

Discipleship

You will meet with a staff member for one-on-one discipleship throughout Lecture Phase. In small groups, you have the opportunity to share and grow with your classmates and group leaders.​

Track 

Opportunities

We offer tracks to empower you to your passions as a form of ministry. Our DTS tracks give additional, supplemental training in the specialized areas. The track is not the main focus of the DTS, but rather comes alongside the core curriculum of DTS. Here at YWAM Wylie, we offer: Children as Risk, Construction, Barista, Anti-Human Trafficking, and Photography & Storytelling, and Classic.

Outreach

Know God

Outreach

Make God Known

During Outreach, you practically apply all you learned in Lecture Phase as you go into the nations and share the love of God. You will live immersed in a culture not your own, obeying the Lord’s commission to go, sharing the gospel, serving local ministries, and making disciples. Currently, our three focus areas include Central Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East.
