In the Creative Arts DTS, we want to allow you to explore God’s creative heart through various artistic expressions, and understand how art fits into the Kingdom of God.  This YWAM-DTS (Discipleship Training School) will bring you deep into relationship with God, help you to build a firm foundation of faith, and allow you to discover your unique gifts and passions. DTS is an intensive 5 month training course split into two parts, lecture phase and outreach, preparing you to answer the call… “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28:19

Lecture Phase

The lecture phase consists of 12 weeks of classroom teaching and community living. Your weeks will include class, worship, intercession for the nations, local outreach, serving on base and living life with our awesome YWAM San Jose community!
Throughout the school we will explore different creative expressions, such as creative writing and fine arts. Students will have the chance to discover and express the beauty God has placed in them. We will learn to use creativity as a ministry tool, during lecture phase and outreach; to know God and make Him known through the arts!
This DTS is for anyone who is hungry for more of God and wants to explore the realm of creativity! No creative experience or background is needed. This is not a performance-focused school, but rather a safe place to discover the creativity in you that comes directly from God’s heart!

Typical Weekly Topics

Character & Nature of God – Biblical Worldview – Spiritual Warfare – Relationships – World Missions – Identity in Christ

Field Assignment

Following our lecture phase is our 8 week field assignment. Teams will be sent out to apply the principles learned in the classroom to a cross-cultural experience and to serve others in need in various ways. We want to give you the opportunity to bring the Kingdom to earth in a hands-on environment. In previous outreaches, we have sent teams throughout Central America, Europe, Asia & South America. We know that God has called us to go out into the nations, so as He leads we will follow.
