The 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!

Typical DTS Topics

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


Following our lecture phase is our 8 week outreach. 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.
