Lecture Phase


The 12-week lecture phase focuses on “To Know God.”  It is an intense, 7 day a week program emphasizing heart transformation and character development. Meet with one on ones, small groups, engage in prayer, worship and discover the heart of God. 

In DTS, knowing God personally and intimately is the bottom line.

"God has redeemed so much; grown me into more of who He created me to be, and loved me so fiercely over the last ten months with YWAM that I cannot begin to describe it all in words. My heart says a big YES to Jesus more than anything now, and I am so thankful that God has used all of these lovely friends and family to be the ones who walked the journey with me!"  ~ Christy, DTS/SOE Graduate

Outreach Phase


How will they know unless you tell them?

The outreach phase focuses on the practical application of “To Make Him Known.” This phase provides an immediate opportunity for each student to put into practice the principles they have just learned in both domestic and cross-cultural field ministry.

Students will be able to deliver God’s message of love, life and hope through Christ that brings healing to the nations! Through evangelism, stories, dramas, church ministry and practical help for the poor and needy, students will be able to see the transforming power of the Gospel. Whenever possible, teams will work alongside existing ministries or community organizations to meet the needs of the people in that location.
