What is a YWAM DTS?

The YWAM Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS) is a course provided by Youth With A Mission (YWAM), one of the largest missions organizations in the world.

The purpose of the YWAM DTS is to develop your relationship with God and to share his love with others. It typically features 3 months of lectures, and 2-3 months of outreach.

DTS is the entryway into further involvement with YWAM, qualifying you for hundreds of volunteer staff opportunities and serving as a pre-requisite to many other YWAM training programs.

What To Expect

The first part of the YWAM Vancouver DTS is a 12-week classroom phase. Qualified staff and teachers share from the Bible, their own experiences, and invite you to experience God in practical and personal ways. More than just information, the classroom phase of the DTS combines “hearing”, “seeing” and “doing” in order to maximize learning and to “connect the dots” between what you know and how you live.

Lectures, reading, small-group discussion, worship, prayer, creative-processing and application times, assignments, and one-on-one conversations with staff, keep classes interesting and accommodate a variety of learning styles.

A 12-week cross-cultural field assignment follows the classroom phase and provides an opportunity to take the gospel to the nations living out and practically giving away what you have learned. You get to see the transforming power of God’s love in the lives of many others around the world!

DTS is an intense six months - living in community, discovering God in new ways, doing things you have never done before - even leaving the safety and comfort of home, all in order to come face to face with the needs of a desperate world.

Potential Topics for Lecture Phase:
Intimacy with God
Hearing the Voice of God
Identity in Christ
Relationships
Salvation and the Cross
Missions
Cross-cultural Communication
The Character and Ways of God
The Father Heart of God
Sharing Your Faith
Biblical View of Justice
Spiritual Warfare

Meet The Leaders

Betty Ann Cyr - DTS Leader

Betty AnnI am originally from the small town of Edmundston New-Brunswick, on the east coast of Canada. My friends would say I'm adventurous, I would say I get bored with the ordinary. So what is more hardcore then to choose to follow Jesus? God took the time to change me at 24 years old and since then I'm all in. That brought me, years later, here to Vancouver to serve you.
I'm a daughter, a big sister, a grand-daughter, an aunt and a friend, and I try to be the best at it every day.
I'm a snowboarder, a biochemist, a medical lab assistant, and a teacher that loves God. I am passionate about teaching, coaching, training basically whatever you want a call it, but lets get together and conquer the world!
My mission is to " Empower, Equip, Encourage", I'm trying real hard while relying on God, to make this a reality every day.
