YWAM Summer Classic DTS

Join us on our Summer Classic Discipleship Training School (DTS)!

Every January & October

Come to Australia for the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime! Each Summer Classic DTS is an all-inclusive dynamic Christian training experience! Whatever your background is, you will fit into a Summer Classic DTS. Make deep friendships as you walk alongside people from around the world. Experience God, life & learning together! Get hands-on experience in the thriving ministry of Youth Street. Develop your skills in reaching Australian young people, mentor Christians from various walks and be amazed at how deeply you can connect with young locals in just 12 weeks.

This 6-month course is a full-time, unique, live/learn community experience. It consists of two parts: lecture phase and outreach phase. The lecture phase will offer you a time of deep revelation as well as liberating personal application. Encounter God like never before as you hear from seasoned speakers who live out the principles they teach. The outreach phase will take you to places you have only dreamed about as you take the Gospel into the nations! Grow in confidence as you share your testimony from small to large groups in cross-cultural settings.

Example core curriculum topics include:
  • Hearing God’s Voice
  • Character & Nature of God
  • Building and Maintaining Godly Relationships
  • Fatherheart of God

As part of the Summer Classic elective, you’ll join the October Compassion, City Transformation, Arts Evangelism, Ships and Barista electives in one DTS lecture phase. Each DTS will have a coordinator gathering students around that elective. This may come in forms such as small group activities, excursions, events, or guest speakers.

While you’ll have specific times for your DTS elective, this will not occur every week. It is important to see electives as a way of gathering similar individuals without taking priority over the core purpose of the DTS. Additionally, we cannot guarantee that each DTS elective will have a major representation on the outreach phase. Our hope is to look for how we can incorporate the elective on outreach but factors outside our control such as culture, event coordination, and ministry contact preferences may affect what is possible.

An elective is defined by:

  • Gathering similar individuals.
  • A leader with an affinity or passion for that elective (but not required).
  • Low level, structured inclusion during lecture phase.
  • Outreach inclusion of the elective where culturally possible and appropriate.

You will embark on a cross-cultural adventure of a lifetime! Be a part of using your passion to break through barriers of age, language, culture and religion. As a result see doors open for the gospel to go into the nations.

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:
