Campus Phase 

Your YWAM DTS starts with training and discipleship on-campus at YWAM Tyler. During this phase, you will build deep friendships, grow your faith, and get equipped by seasoned missionaries to share the Gospel in relevant ways.

International Outreach

Once you’ve finished your campus phase, it’s on to OUTREACH! Spend two-months overseas with your DTS crew sharing the love of God through various evangelism and ministry experiences. 

We also have a huge heart for America, and part of your outreach includes a short trip to some amazing places across the US. 


Customize Your DTS

Our desire is to come alongside you and encourage you to accomplish your God-given dreams and live a missionary lifestyle.

Now you can even customize your live-learn experience with a DTS elective! We have several options for you to choose from. Find the one that’s a good fit for you!


Electives to Choose

  • Information Technology
  • Sustainable Agricultural 
  • Performing Arts
  • Lives at Risk
  • Medical Missions
  • Bible Training

Choose an option to fit your talents, gifts, or interests. Find out more. 



"I came to do a Discipleship Training School and found my purpose. To bring restoration to the lost and the broken." 


"When I was 15, I did the summer of service and training (SST) at YWAM Tyler. I am now walking out my calling as a full-time missionary. God's call on your life does not have an age limit!"

The next school is just around the corner!

Discipleship Training Schools start every January, April, July, and October!
