DTS - Compassion | YWAM Newcastle
You were made for this

Be Moved With Compassion

Are you passionate about seeing your generation rise up? Does your heart long for people to know Jesus personally? Do you feel like God is calling you to establish change in your community but don’t know where to begin? The Compassion elective is a great first step as you seek out God’s calling for your life.


We believe all are called to live with a missional mindset and serve God wherever you are, whether that is in a foreign country or your workplace at home. Our training will equip you with practical skills to live and serve in whichever area of society God has called you to.

“I never imagined I would complete a university degree, however, I’ve never regretted taking the time to pursue further training. YWAM’s university has allowed me to complete a degree whilst being actively involved in ministry in many cross cultural settings.”

YWAM Staff

“I realised I don’t have to be a preacher in a suit with a theology degree to be a missionary. Rather, I can practically build the kingdom of God with my hands! I have found huge passion in construction, remodelling, sailing, ship maintaining and more.”
– Jesse Lee


“Sports DTS helped me realise sports are not only a passion of mine but a platform to reach out with the Gospel in both word and actions. DTS gave me a great kick-off for my future work with building and spreading wellness to body, soul and spirit.”
