There are different training programs you can sign up for to build your faith and knowledge of God. The journey of your training will begin with Discipleship Training School (DTS), a 6-month program with different focuses that trains students how to be a missionary. This includes evangelism, church planting, hearing God’s voice, and going into the nations to practice what you’ve learned.
After completion of your Discipleship Training School, you can go back to college, continue your career in the workplace, become a YWAM KC staff, or build upon your DTS training with a Secondary School that focuses on biblical studies. Upon graduation of a Secondary School qualifies you to participate in a Tertiary School. All of this training is university-accredited and gives you credits towards a degree from the University of the Nations.
