YWAMDC DTS was the door that God provided for me to walk through to Life. I am so blessed that I said Yes to God and walked through that door!

I found purpose, I found family, and I found that God’s calling is coming alive in my life!

DTS opened me up to an incredible godly community and revealed to me that missions is not easy. Missions is real, and it is hard. I truly learned that great sacrifice is needed, and death to self is crucial in our walk with God.
DTS Student 2021
DTS was a wild ride. From the tears to the laughter, the pain to the healing. I don’t regret DTS at all. It was a blessing from the heavens.
If you want to grow deeper in the Lord, do a DTS and you will see IT'S TIME to be who you are called to be.
DTS Student 2022
I can confidently say that doing my DTS in Washington DC forever changed my life! Jesus taught me the joy that is found living an abandoned, laid-down life, and forever wrecked me with a heart of prayer and worship. The deep healing and spiritual maturity I gained should have taken me 2 years to accomplish, but God accelerated all of it in 6 months to launch me into my calling!
DTS Student 2021
I think DTS is one of the closest experiences we can have to the 12 disciples’ experience. Jesus calls us to forsake everything and follow Him. He challenges us to trust and obey while He teaches us through His Word and experience. He calls a whole cluster of people to embark on this journey together and they are the iron that sharpens and the friends that stick closer than a brother.
