CREATIVE ARTS DTS

YWAM San José Discipleship Training School

The Discipleship Training School (DTS)

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) is a 5-month volunteer training course that equips young people from all over the world to get to know God and make him known in all nations through short and long-term missions. The course is divided into 2 separate phases: 12 weeks of the Lecture Phase where national and international volunteer speakers come to teach on various topics about God and who He is, and 8 weeks of the Outreach Phase, where students take what they have learned and apply it on a mission / evangelistic mission trip abroad.

The focus of the creative arts in this missionary school will be integrated intentionally along with the classic DTS curriculum. Volunteer students will be guided to discover God’s creative heart and learn about the important role that art plays in the Kingdom of God, as well as to explore their own creative expression. During the Lecture Phase, missionary students will be able to explore various artistic disciplines such as music, creative writing, dance and fine arts through hands-on workshops. For their Outreach Phase, students will use the creative work they have prepared and the skills they have acquired during the Lecture Phase, to share the love of Christ in global missions.
