Each DTS is designed to do five things:


you to worship, listen to and obey God through evangelism, intercession and acts of compassion.


growth in your relationship with God and Christ-like character.


your ability to relate to, learn from and work with people.


you to serve God’s purposes, in or outside of YWAM.


the vision and foundational values of YWAM and share opportunities for service.

Lecture phase

Most mornings during the lecture phase will be spent in the classroom, but with daily prayer and worship and opportunities for weekly evangelism, our DTS will not simply fill your mind with wisdom, it will touch your heart with revelation and empower you to quickly put into practice the things that you learn.

Examples of teaching topics include the person and work of Jesus, hearing God's voice, worship and prayer, evangelism and the Holy Spirit. Many of the members of the YWAM Cambridge team are excellent and inspirational teachers in their own right, but we also invite local ministers and YWAMers from further afield to come and teach.

Outreach phase

Following in the footsteps of the great missionary pioneers, the Cambridge Seven, we love sharing the Good News all around the world. Each DTS spends two months overseas on outreach. International outreach gives you the opportunity to experience a new culture, the strength and support of being on a team and the opportunity to minister to others in a wide variety of situations in love. On outreach you could find yourself preaching and performing dramatic sketches of the gospel in local churches, giving Bibles out on the streets, praying for the sick in a government hospital, or teaching in schools — whatever God calls us to do, we will do!
