What is a DTS?

The Discipleship Training School (YWAM-DTS) is a six-month training that will transform your life! You will deepen your relationship with God and be trained to go into the mission field to make God known. What is unique about this school is that it consists of two parts: being trained in the classroom and being trained on the mission field.

    What is a DTS about?

    Lecture Phase

    Are you searching for a life changing experience and renewing in your life? The lecture phase could just be that for you: get to know God better, be rooted deeper in him, learn to hear God’s voice, dive into his Word and discover his calling for your life. You will learn through inputs, living in a community and you will always get opportunities to put the things you learn straight into practice.

    The DTS lecture phase will be bilingual with Dutch and English translation.

    Outreach Phase

    For the mission trip (also called outreach) your class will split up intro different teams. The focus will be on evangelism, children/youth ministry, mercy ministry and church involvement. You will travel all over the earth, experience new cultures, work with locals and share the gospel. Discover your gifts and talents as you make God known.

    The Bible says:
    “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. (Matthew 28:19 ESV)

    Testimonies

    • Outreach: Community development

      “DTS changed my life and gave me a strong foundation for the future. God is in everything and will lead everything. Before DTS I couldn’t say this with assurance. Now, looking back, I can say it -God is at work in my life. Through my time in Brazil, where I went for outreach, I saw that God works through me and the things that I do, think and feel. He gives me strength when I face a challenge, for example preaching. He comforts me in difficult times and He puts desires in my heart and builds my character."

    • DTS Outreach

      “My relationship with God was turned upside down and has only gotten much better.”

      Celina Dekker
    • DTS student muslim culture

      We went on the street in Brazil with three hundred other enthusiastic Christians. My friend and I asked God if He could to send English speaking people to us. Sure enough ten minutes later there were three English speaking guys who came to us. When we began to speek about faith in God, the Holy Spirit inspired the conversation. He gave us the words so we could answer their questions. God was at work! When we told them that they also could make a choice for God, they became enthusiastic. Shortly thereafter, they made their choice. Yes, three other people who can work in Gods Kingdom!”

      What is a focus-track?

      A unique aspect of a DTS at YWAM Heidebeek is that we offer focus-tracks. At the beginning of your DTS you will choose one of the available tracks. You then have two moments a week to focus on the track. See below which tracks are running in your DTS!

      Music Track

      This track will equip, coach and train you in using music to lead people to God. We will do this by inviting speakers, making music together and giving coaching. The track will cover the following topics: what is worship, relationship with God, leading worship and reaching out.

      ~This track runs in: January and September.

      Missions Track

      From everywhere to everyone”: we ware all called to be part of fulfilling the Great Commission that God has given to us. Missions is not only for a few people but for everyone!

      Football (soccer) Track

      Football is an amazing game that is played all over the world. In slums and multi-million dollar arena’s, we see the ball rolling. It has the amazing ability to bring joy and passion, but also hope and brotherhood. In this track, you will learn how you can bless youths and communities, even to the point where you can share the biggest blessing you have.

      Community development Track

      The God of the nations does not only care about Him being known by all, but He also longs to bring forth blessing on the earth. His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. So He is into destroying the works of the enemy, fighting against injustice, caring for the poor and downtrodden, providing food for the hungry, and the list goes on and on. In this track you will be inspired to bless communities in Jesus’ Name and you will be equipped to go and do it.
