Discipleship Training School (DTS)

Jonathan Mumbi (Base Director)


The Discipleship Training School is the most important training module offered by YWAM anywhere in the world because in this module is a required qualification for entrance into volunteer missionary service or into the University of the Nations as a student. The prospective candidate gets to be oriented to missions, lays a foundation for ministry on which future University of the Nations courses will be built, and spends invaluable time practicing godly values.

During the Discipleship Training School, the students will interact with staff and fellow students in many different contexts. It is our prayer that every student who comes to the DTS has the minimum maturity level to be a contributor in our learning community. Both students and staff are enriched by what each one brings to this community in terms of what they have gained from walking with God before the DTS and after the DTS.
