You must be at least 18 years old, or have completed high school, to attend the DTS.

Walking in KenyaWhere else can you take five months of your life and hand it over to Christ to work on? The live/learn environment equips believers to take their understanding of what it means to be a Christian and walk it out on a day to day basis. The community setting provides an opportunity to learn from other Christians, be encouraged by their walk, and let God develop you as a person and a leader all at the same time. The variety of international speakers and topics they teach allows for a firm, broad foundation to be built in a believer’s life.

Topics include: Hearing God’s Voice, Intimacy with God, Character & Nature of God, Spiritual Warfare, Evangelism, Healthy Relationships, Studying the Word, Intercession for the Nations, Teamwork & Servant Living.

Class with Janet DittoBut the DTS is not just about gaining more “head knowledge”! We take everything we learn in the lecture phase and bring it to the lost and unreached nations of the world. Our DTS outreaches have brought the life changing message of the Gospel to Bulgaria, Cambodia, China, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Mexico, Scotland, Thailand, and many other places.

DTS Tracks

Within the DTS we are offering three tracks, allowing students the opportunity to focus in on either Compassion and Justice, Children at Risk, or Worship.

Compassion + Justice

Tina - IntercessionEveryday we are faced with issues of injustice. It is all around us. Issues like human trafficking, poverty, orphan crisis, starvation, clean water and HIV/AIDS. The situations seem hopeless…overwhelming.

But wait! We are called to be world changers, to be salt and light! We are called to bring hope to dark and desperate places. And He who called us is faithful!

With the Compassion and Justice DTS we will cover these issues and more. We will seek the Lord and His heart for solutions on bringing awareness to those who do not know, and compassion to those who know all too well. Do you have a desire to make a difference in this world for Jesus? We do too. Come, let us make a difference together!

Children at Risk

Cassie in IndiaThe Children at Risk Track teaches everything a DTS teaches, with an emphasis on  the Father’s heart for children who face hardships beyond what He ever intended. There will be specialized seminars on human trafficking, child soldiers, broken families, AIDS orphans, FGM and more. On a weekly basis the students of the Children at Risk Track will serve YWAM-Charlotte’s Front Porch Program. This ministry reaches out to the children of our inner-city neighborhood, where the news is not so good, to give them the Good News. Through all of this, students in the Children at Risk Track will get a glimpse of God’s heart for children in poverty situations, the fatherless, the weak and forgotten, and children who believe they are worthless.  Jesus says in Mark, “Whoever embraces one of these children as I do embraces me, and far more than me – God who sent me.”  Come join us as we embrace God and petition Him for these little ones.


rsz_worship_2014We are so excited to be introducing this new Worship Track to our DTS line-up! God’s word says, in Psalm 96:9, “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” Just like our other tracks, this one will cover everything you will find in a classic DTS, with an added emphasis on worship. We will have weekly seminars, led by an seasoned worship leader, with practical times of application that include opportunities to grow in musical gifting, leading worship, playing together as a community and even writing new songs. We recommend that you bring an instrument with you if you play, but it is not required. Through this track, you will grow in your understanding and practice of true worship and getting God’s heart for the nations. We want to see true worshipers bringing light to the dark places of the earth. Join us in this journey!
