Welcome to Discipleship Training School (DTS) Romania

Discipleship Training School (DTS) is a 5 ½ -month course consisting of 12 weeks of teaching, 8-10 weeks of practical „on-the-field” training and a final week of evaluation.

Phase 1: LECTURE

You will join with students from all over the world in a classroom setting for 3 months. Each week we focus on a different aspect of God, our relationship with Him, and how He uses you to make a difference.
DTS students live together in community and share the tasks of cooking and cleaning. Each week you have the opportunity to impact the city and participate in ongoing YWAM ministries.


The Outreach is 8-10 weeks long. You could apply what you have learned in the lecture phase by blessing another nation. You will be serving alongside long-term missionaries, a church or other mission base, in another country through: evangelism, practical work, teaching, prayer and intercession and more.

Phase 3: Debriefing
During this phase, we will debrief and evaluate the entire 22 weeks of the DTS, a time designed for students to reflect on all God has done, bith in their lives and through their lives. It is also a time to help students make the transition from their DTS experience to whatever lies ahead of them.


In December, God placed Romania heavily on my heart. Last fall, I felt The Lord guiding me to YWAM. It took me about a week to find YWAM Constanta, but once I found it I knew, “This is the one.”

Danielle, DTS Romania

I have a deeper relationship with God after learning about His character and his heart for us. The way I live my Christian life every day has changed. I‘ve learned that I can involve God in my whole day. I also see a change in my prayer life, and I understand more about prayer and can pray more effectively. Hearing personal stories from the speakers has made my faith bigger.

Priscilla, DTS Romania

God has taken me, held me in his arms, and inspired me to open up to him, so he can heal me and I can surrender the things I held on to. God wants
us to be free. When we surrender all to him, he sets us free.
