Biblical Core Course – BCC
Have you ever wondered what to do with your life? Thought about how incredible your life is (or isn’t?) and how important your faith can be in shaping not only your whole future, but also others? Would you love to get answers to some hard questions and find direction for your life? Are you looking for peace, good relationships, how to please God and how to make your life matter? Would you like a cross-cultural adventure, desire the opportunity to travel and maybe even learn another language?
A YWAM DTS (Discipleship Training School) is an insanely great place for Christian growth that does exactly that! Geared toward 18 – 35 year olds, the heart of the DTS is “to know God and make Him known.” The emphasis is about both knowledge gained and principles applied. The DTS really is an amazing place to grow and develop your personal character and identify your unique gifts.
Each YWAM DTS capitalizes on different interests and passions. Whether it’s on a ship or in a huge city, it can be a lot of fun exploring your creative side.
Together with a team of other students, you can make a huge impact on the communities you’ll visit on your DTS outreach.
If you are looking to grow and sharpen your perception of God and His purposes for your life, a DTS is a must do!
*The DTS is the entry-level program into training and further involvement with Youth With a Mission.
Head out on adventure with us and you’ll find yourself face to face with images from the pages of National Geographic. Imagine being on an island in the Caribbean, up a river on the Amazon, on board a yahct up the Sea of Cortez of Mexico (The Baja), traveling around Europe on board the Next Wave. We are global in our reach. All of our training schools include practical application in at least one of these locations where you will have the chance to bring hope and life to those who are in great need.
DTS is designed to lay foundations of knowing God and making Him known by training participants in the foundational teachings of Youth With A Mission and by providing opportunities for hands on application of that training. The DTS opens the door for ongoing involvement with Youth With a Mission, and provides foundational training that will assist you in further missions involvement, or for personal application in any sphere of society.

The Discipleship Training School is a combination of heart revelation and head knowledge with an emphasis in practical application. There is also a component of written course work which helps students understanding reach a deeper level as processing and application takes place. Our assessments utilise a range of methods including: journals, workbooks, book reports, outreach reports, self-assessment checklists and supervisor reports. The DTS is holistic in nature and units of competency are delivered concurrently enabling you to develop your skills, knowledge and character.
