Adventure in Australia

YWAM Newcastle is based amongst gorgeous beaches and urban landscapes, with bush and wildlife not far away, it truly is a great setting to experience Australia.

Get to know God while growing with passionate speakers form around the world. You will learn about topics such as hearing God’s voice, the Father heart of God, Missions, and Relationships.

The first 3 months of DTS will offer you a time of deep revelation as well as a chance to personally apply the principles to your life.

Training that takes you places!

The outreach phase is your opportunity to travel to a foreign culture, BRINGING THE HOPE OF CHRIST TO THE NATIONS. The Great Commission to “go into all the world & make disciples” will be pumping through your veins as you jump into this cross cultural journey to make God known.

Outreach will take you to the places you have only ever dreamed about! Grow in confidence as you share your testimony to large audiences. Whether you are called to long-term or short-term missions, the benefit of going to a cross-cultural location and seeing the needs of that location and then being part of the solution is life changing!

Each DTS sends teams to unique locations. Here are a few places we have gone:
Thailand, Cambodia, Japan, Indonesia, Columbia, Mexico, Malaysia, Latvia, Spain, New Zealand & around Australia.
