YWAM-DTS Overview

The Discipleship Training School (YWAM-DTS) is not just a good experience; it’s a life-changing school of application designed to challenge you in character development, cultivating a depth of intimacy with God, and applying this in the nations! As a student in Cambodia you will be immersed in a new culture, exposed to the unique ministry opportunities of South East Asia, and studying with participants from all over the globe.

Lecture & Practical Outreach

The core of YWAM-DTS is to Know God & Make Him Known. The training begins with a 3 month Lecture Phase which is focused on personal application. We are not simply amassing head-knowledge—we are applying truth through community living, discipleship topics, daily service, worship, evangelism, and prayer. The Lecture Phase is followed by a two month frontier missions outreach where we respond to God’s call to ‘Go into all the world and disciple all nations’ (Matt. 28:19). YWAM-DTS is the entry-level course to missions with YWAM and provides you with an open door to countless missions opportunities and further training in Youth with a Mission.

YWAM-DTS was one of the highlights of my life. God used YWAM-DTS to set my life apart for his purposes, to bring him glory. It was one of the best choices I’ve made.

Through the YWAM-DTS in Battambang God brought me into a deeper friendship and relationship with Him. During YWAM-DTS, he acted as my Father, Lord, and friend. He is all that I need.
