I joined the Worship focus because the word I got from the Lord that brought me to DTS was, "Worship me with your passion. I finally understood that the heart of worship is just me sitting at my God's feet, declaring that He is good and so worthy.

Esther JeongSeptember Worship DTS 2016

Worship DTS completely transformed how I viewed worship and equipped me to better use my musical talents to further the kingdom.

Aleisha EdwardsSeptember Worship DTS 2016

Through the Worship focus, I realized how much heavenly music is able to bring transformation to the dark and worldly culture we live in today. But this must first begin in me as I worship and know God.

Part 1: Training Phase

The training phase will be a profound time of encountering God as you are equipped to be a missionary to the nations. Speakers from all over the world will come and bring focused training as we seek the Lord together in community. During these 12 weeks, you will be trained as a messenger to hear God’s voice, proclaim the gospel, start discipleship movements, and engage in strategic missions.

A typical week will include:

Personal devotional time

Daily lectures with teachers from all over the world

Work duties in which we all serve the base for a couple hours a day

Small groups

Outreach meetings

One-on-one processing times with a staff member

Local outreach


Part 2: Outreach Phase

Immediately following the training phase, you will use the tools you were equipped with to impact a specific nation for God’s kingdom. Our outreaches have seen thousands come to Christ in countries all over the globe.

Our DTS outreaches work with long-term initiatives and strategies that God has laid on our hearts. We use YWAM KC’s connections to impact these nations. All outreaches have three components: evangelism, practical ministry and partnership with local churches and ministries.  Our primary outreach locations are Asia, Africa and Central/South America however, your outreach could be anywhere in the world!   Outreaches are announced during the lecture phase.
