What is DTS?
The CDTS or DTS is the foundational course for all those entering YWAM and its global university.
This life- transforming school infuses students with a passion for Jesus, for youth and for missions…
equips people of various ages and levels of spiritual maturity to grow in their relationship with God and to develop Christ-like character.
awakens a burden for the world's lost and hurting people, showing how individuals can be an influence for redemptive change in whatever job or country or sphere of society God may call them to serve in. Helps build a solid Biblical foundation for life, including an understanding of the nature and character of God and how to apply his truth and wisdom in everyday life.
Challenges Christian men and women to become active in service to their local church, their local community and in world missions and evangelism.
Imparts an understanding of YWAM international, its foundational values, calling and opportunities for service.
YWAM co-founder Darlene Cunningham says of the DTS:
"I believe it is the most important ministry/program we have in the whole of YWAM, because it is the doorway into the mission and the University of the Nations. It is the foundation for everything, where people are met with faith, where they come to understand the history and values of YWAM; where they are presented with mission opportunities ... and it's where their own vision may be fueled." We do hope, you will find your Destiny in God through out the school and we will look forward to hear from you as you process your journey with the Lord. May God richly bless you as you are seeking his direction for your life!"
Completion of both lecture phase and field assignment is a prerequisite to attending any other UofN courses or to becoming a part of the staff of YWAM.
Families with children will have to bring their own nanny, as we are not able to offer childcare at this time. Costs for room and board for a non-student childcare person would be 1'500.- Swiss Francs for the three months lecture phase

The outreach phase gives participants two and a half months of missions experience in Africa, Asia or other such areas of the world.
" ... to make him known" The outreach follows immediately after the lecture phase, lasts for 10 weeks and will take place in a cross-cultural situation. It is a time to put into practice some of the truths that we have learned in the lecture phase, where we become 'doers of the word, not just hearers only.' Past outreach locations were Madagascar, Cameroon, Scotland, and Taiwan.
