WHAT IS A DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL (DTS)?

A DTS is a six-month training school which will give you the opportunity for a closer and more intimate walk with God. The DTS is split into two parts, the lecture phase and the outreach phase. Both phases will allow God to change you and mold you to be the person that God created you to be.


LECTURE PHASE

The lecture phase is an intensive time of learning, team building, small groups, ministry, fun nights and building close friends with the people on the base. The lectures are varied and interesting, and will include subjects like: The Nature and Character of God, The Father Heart of God, Evangelism, Intercession and the Call of God. There are many more subjects which all point you to building your relationship with God and others. You will also be involved in small groups where you share your learning experiences and build close intimate friendships with each other. Part of the Lecture Phase is also getting involved with the YWAM Cebu base ministries, so you can get a small taste of what a YWAM missionary does.


OUTREACH PHASE

Outreach is an important part of your DTS experience. There are two outreaches one is during the lecture phase (midterm outreach) and lasts two weeks and the other outreach is a major outreach and lasts about two months. In these outreaches you could serve fellow YWAMers, local churches and other Christian ministries in many different types of service, from kids work, youth work, practical help, evangelism and campus ministry etc. Long term outreaches can be either in the Philippines or in the Indo-China region in nations like Thailand, Cambodia, China etc.


SCHOOL FEES

The DTS has two different prices making the school accessible to all those who wish to attend.
For Westerners, the school fee is $1,500. This covers the food, accommodation and other expenses during the lecture phase, except for travel expenses for the midterm outreach. This charge does not cover expenses during the outreach phase.

For those from the Philippines and other developing nations, the school fee is Php 20,000. This covers the food, accommodation and other expenses during the lecture phase, except for travel expenses for the midterm outreach. This charge does not cover expenses during the outreach phase.
