Study, Sail, Serve!

One of the things that makes this DTS so unique is that you will get to learn to sail during your lecture phase, then during outreach you will have opportunity to minister to some of the most isolated villages on earth.

When can I start?

We have four options:
January, April, June and September

Contact us NOW, so we can help you find out more about our YWAM Ships Discipleship Training School.

In just a few months, you could be embarking on a whole new adventure in God!

Join us for a YWAM DTS with a difference

Have you ever dreamed of adventure, doing something that counts with your life, helping people, seeing your life change, learning new skills, developing deep friendships along the way while encountering God and deepening your faith?

During your Discipleship Training School you will receive life-changing teaching from a variety of international speakers who travel to join us during the lecture phase. You will also have the opportunity to put your learning into action as you help in ministry, relate to those serving longterm in YWAM, experiencing new cultures, and building a Godly global perspective.

Not Your Average Classroom


On your YWAM Ships DTS, training happens both outside and inside the classroom. Lectures will open your heart, challenge your mind and inspire you to act.  With lecturers from all around the world, every week will be an adventure of it’s own. You will rub shoulders with YWAM staff and leaders from around the globe who will encourage you and broaden your understanding of missions.

Where do you wanna go?

Head out on adventure with us and you’ll find yourself face to face with images from the pages of National Geographic.

Taste the rain forests of the Amazon, Papua New Guinea, Micronesia, the Crystal blue waters of the Caribbean or isolated villages of the South Pacific.

Outreach (your field assignment) is where you live out everything you heard during the lecture phase and put it into practice.  You will get to choose at least one of these locations and have the chance to bring hope and life to those who are in great need.

Interested in knowing more? Contact us. We’d love to chat!
