ABOUT DTS

The Discipleship Training School  (DTS) is a 5+month program that combines 3months of biblical teachings from a variety of international speakers, with 2months of practical field work, where we put it all in action.  Here in Jamaica we have two coming up in 2024: our Deaf DTS, and our Worship & Intercession DTS.

All our DTSes are based on the YWAM International Values, submitted to the structure provided by the University of the Nations, and based on the YWAM statements of beliefs. To  learn more about any of the above, click the relevant text.

Deaf World DTS

September 22- February 22, 2025

Our Mission:

   "To train up Deaf young adults and the young at heart, by using Sign Language, to first: Know God and to love His presence and seek him above all else. And second: To Make God Known and share their passion for Jesus throughout the Deaf Community worldwide."

Please note that as our focus is on the Deaf, all students must be fluent in ASL to even be considered for this DTS.

Burning Ones DTS

September 22- February 22, 2025

Our theme this year is "Burning Ones" as we lean into our focus as a Worship & Intercession training school. We feel like the Lord is raising up a community of passionate worshippers, who catch a glimpse of His heart for our hurting world and invite Him in. 

Students will learn practical skills in leading out worship and prayer sets. Our overseas outreach will be focused on the unreached as we head back to West Africa.
