YWAM Worcester DTS
YWAM Discipleship Training School

A DTS For Everyone

The Discipleship Training School (YWAM-DTS) seeks to bring you into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.

The course is a full-time program and lasts about five months. It consists of two parts: the Lecture Phase and Outreach Phase. In the lecture phase, you will learn more about God and His world. You’ll learn not only from lectures but also from community living and practical training. The outreach phase focuses on applying what you’ve learned in the classroom through an intense, cross-cultural experience.

The April DTS offers different “tracks” (a focus on a particular type of activity alongside the DTS curriculum. During your school, you will journey with others with the same interest and passion, and also grow together in community and reach out to others in your giftings.

More Tracks


The Troubadour Discipleship Training School (TDTS) offers you the same curriculum as a normal YWAM-DTS. The primary focus is Discipleship, however, the school is run in a very creative way.
During the TDTS, Christian artists will be taught on discipleship and equipped to share the Good News in a creative and practical way, taking into consideration their personal gifts and talents.
Creative learning is facilitated and all people are embraced and celebrated. The school offers creative workshops that will allow the students to discover and develop more their God-given talents – the workshops vary according to the available personnel.
This is a great opportunity for anyone that wants to receive healing, restoration, and to be radical in knowing God and making Him known in a creative way.

Testimonials about the DTS

DTS started a journey in me, to be intentional with people around me and explore the bottomless love of God. To know God more clears my identity and creates strong friendships.
- Kabelo Mokoena, Former DTS Student
My DTS was an unforgettable experience! I could know God and go deeper into a relationship with him. Knowing him and who He made me to be opened space for healing and to live in complete freedom. I also had a chance to know new cultures, learn from them, and worship the same God together in many different ways! If you want to know your identity, you need to know the creator.
