Faith in Action: Exploring the Impact of Discipleship Training Schools


Maybe you have heard about the Discipleship Training School (DTS) offered by Youth With A Mission (YWAM). It is one of the best ways to grow your faith, stretch your worldview, experience other cultures, expand your understanding of the Bible, and learn about God and who He made you be. Let’s explore what a YWAM DTS is.


What is a Discipleship Training School 

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) at Youth With A Mission Asheville is an opportunity for you to wholeheartedly pursue Jesus. A YWAM DTS is 5 months of life-changing training & missions. The DTS curriculum is designed to guide students through a heart-level transformation while equipping them with practical tools to apply what they’ve learned for the rest of their lives. 

You can discover your passions and contribution to God’s plans for the world through a YWAM DTS. A Discipleship Training School provides new perspectives on following Jesus for those who long for new ways of following him. Participate in this deeply transformational experience by doing a DTS at YWAM Asheville. 

A YWAM Asheville DTS is a unique way to grow your faith, develop ministry skills, and gain valuable cross-cultural experiences! 

The purpose of the Discipleship Training School is to provide students with a space that is dedicated specifically to deepening their understanding of who God is, challenging and encouraging them to see who He has created them to be, and equipping young people with tools to share Christ’s love with the world around them wherever they go. 

Through a YWAM DTS, you will be immersed in an environment where you can learn about God and grow in your relationship with Him. The Discipleship Training School at YWAM Asheville will teach you to recognize the voice of God and empower you to follow Him where He leads! 

Our YWAM DTS curriculum and DTS course schedule consists of 2 phases; Lecture & Outreach. As you progress through the lecture phase of YWAM training. you’ll focus on knowing God, His Word, and His world. Besides learning from teachers, you’ll also live in a community

and receive practical training. The goal is to transform yourself, renew your mind, and grow. Then, during outreach, DTS school students serve God outside the classroom! This cross-cultural experience will allow you to discover more about yourself and the world around you while sharing the good news of Jesus!


Why is a YWAM DTS important? 

Discipleship is a concept that simply means Christians are building up, edifying, and sharpening other Christians. Spiritual formation and discipleship allow us to grow in our understanding of truth and expand our ability to love those around us well. Discipleship is vital to the life of any believer to grow in spiritual maturity, sanctification, reconciliation, healing, and wholeness. 

We believe training young people to do missions is what the Lord has called us to do as an organization. The Discipleship Training Course gives young missionaries the tools to make the Good News of Jesus tangible and relevant in any place or capacity the Lord calls them. 

This is done through intentional discipleship, practical missions experience, teaching, and training that will equip them for a lifetime of Christian service. 


The effective impact of Discipleship Training Schools 

The truth is that Christianity in America is on the decline. Our understanding of spirituality as a culture is very far from the Biblical understanding. More often than not, even those claiming to be Christian are uneducated about their faith. There is a severe lack of Biblical knowledge and literacy in this generation. We are passionate at YWAM Asheville to train Gen Z with a robust and full understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Graduates of DTS walk away with PRACTICAL, BIBLICAL, and APPLICABLE tools they can use for the rest of their lives as they grow closer to God. A YWAM DTS is effective because it gets down to the level of the student, meets them where they are in their faith, confronts and transforms ungodly beliefs and worldviews as needed, strengthens faith, and provides direction for the future.

Final Takeaway 

There are endless ways to grow in your faith, challenge yourself, experience travel and other cultures, learn about God’s character and nature, and learn more about who He made you to be….but a YWAM DTS is a place you can do all of that and more at the same time! If you are wondering about what the best YWAM DTS location or best YWAM base may be, or if you’re

worried about YWAM DTS cost, give us a call! We have highly trained and compassionate staff ready to discuss that with you! 

Having been in YWAM for over 10 years, I have seen a fair share of DTSs! Despite that, every DTS excites me because I KNOW how powerful it can be!
