Discipleship Training School is a life changing course is offered through YWAM’s University of the Nations. As an affiliate ministry, we are delighted to be offering this school right here in Olympia, Washington. Discipleship Training School or “DTS” is open to all ages 18 and up. It offers an intensely foundational course of study in rightly relating to God and our fellow man and in building a Biblical world view. It also serves as the entry level course for those wishing to further their academic studies with the University of the Nations, with branch campuses around the world.
The school consists of two phases. The lecture phase begins in the spring and is held primarily at our offices in Olympia. Courses of study include The Father Heart of God, The Nature and Character of God, Spiritual Warfare and Intercessory Prayer, The Person and Work of Jesus, Cross-Cultural Evangelism, and many others. The $2,500 fee covers instruction, curriculum, materials, housing, food, etc. ($2,100 for commuting students.)
Following the lecture phase, the outreach phase will commence, lasting until early November. We will be participating hands-on in numerous aspects of urban ministry at locations throughout the Pacific Northwest. The (approximate) $3,100 fee covers food, lodging, transportation, base fees, and other incidental costs for the duration of the outreach. It does not include Visa fees, and flights to and from the DTS. Actual costs will depend on factors such as actual cost of transportation, and may be lower than this estimate. Following the completion of the outreach phase, the student will be considered a graduate of DTS and eligible to either pursue further studies with the University of the Nations or to pursue a staff position with YWAM, which has over 500 ministry locations around the world.
