Know GOD




You want to go deeper in your faith and discover what it means to live it out. Discipleship Training School (DTS) is where your YWAM journey begins, made specifically for you to know God and make Him known. This five to six-month missions and discipleship course is divided into two terms; lecture term and outreach term. In each term you'll discover more of who God is, who you are in Him, and how to be a part of His purposes in the nations. Explore the unique DTS experiences offered across Canada. Each YWAM location and DTS focuses on different nations, people groups, or themes. Find the one that's right for you, and then take up Jesus' call to GO.



Billions of people will live and die without ever hearing Jesus' Good News. We believe God is calling young people to be a part of His redemption purposes in the nations. Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is a global Christian missions movement, filled with young people, driven by a passion to know God and make Him known. YWAM locations, ministries, and missionaries are connected by shared purpose, beliefs, and values that make up our DNA. All our mission activity is expressed through Evangelism, Training, and Mercy. YWAM first came to Canada in 1967 and has since grown to include over 30 locations and ministries all across the country. Begin with Discipleship Training School (DTS) and become a part of God's story for Canada and the nations.


We equip young people for missions through specialized training courses by YWAM's University Of The Nations (UofN), starting with DTS.


We partner with local believers to share the love of Jesus across Canada and the nations, because everyone has the right to hear His Good News.


We follow Jesus’ example of compassion to those in need, bringing relief and development among people living in desperate circumstances.
