The last 3 months, known as our Outreach Phase, will take place overseas in the missions field, in places such as Japan, Nepal, South Africa, and Brazil. Our upcoming school is scheduled for Fall 2020.

what is YWAM?

You. The City. The World.

God will impact YOU. Each week of Lecture Phase, we will cover different topics such as: Listening to God, Spiritual Warfare, Missions, Identity in Christ, Holy Spirit, Father heart of God and more! There will also be many times to process what you learn in groups or one on one.

You will impact THE CITY. Along with the teaching, we will be engaged in urban outreach every day in Long Beach and Los Angeles. We will be serving local ministries, working with the poor, and evangelizing at the beach and downtown areas. The goal will be to learn how to be an influence in your community.

You will be released to THE WORLD. After 3 months of Lecture Phase, we will go on a 2 month Field Assignment. This will be an international outreach and cross-cultural experience, challenging you to leave your comfort zone and serve those different from you. DTS graduation is only the beginning of the Impact that you can make in the world. After your school you will be presented with countless opportunities to serve God and make Him known in the nations. We want to help you find your calling. The world is at your fingertips!
