Training

At YWAM Destination Paradise, we train and equip emerging leaders for effectiveness in ministry. Every year, we run four Discipleship Training Schools and a number of second level schools…all created to let you dive in, go deeper and experience God like never before. Our current second level schools are Bible Core Course (BCC), Foundations in Counseling Ministries (FCM) and, the very exciting Word by Heart school. We also offer opportunities to get to know us with a Discover DTS or take your faith around the world through our Internship program.

DTS (Discipleship Training School) is the first step in any experience with YWAM. All other schools and long term service with YWAM require DTS first. YWAM DP offers a DTS program that lets you dive into an adventure with God while experiencing adventures like sailing and scuba diving on our beautiful Carribean campus.

Note: The next DTS school begins January 2nd, 2018.

Bible Core Course

Get ready to challenge your worldview as you see truth anew through the word of God. Bible Core Course (BCC) takes you on a 12-week journey through the Bible and then propels the learning off the pages, as you embark on a cross-cultural outreach to equip and teach others to know God and make him known.

Note: The next BCC school begins April 3rd, 2018.

Word by Heart

Word By Heart has one driving ambition — Jesus. This course will enable you to see Jesus in a unique and personal way. It will also enable you to speak of Him through your own language, humor and personality using the exact words of the Gospels.

This course is not about acting. It is not about learning skits or drama. It is not about textual study of the Bible. This course is about knowing Jesus personally and sharing him in a unique way through the prism of your personality, humor and language.

Note: Upcoming WORD BY HEART schools have not yet been scheduled, but applications are always open.

YWAM DP internships take our YWAM DP family around the world. Each internship is highly unique and personal – designed to allow you to walk out your faith with new independence, while still being closely connected with your YWAM DP family through prayer, communication and logistical support. As for what the 16-week experience might look like, the possibilities are endless. You could serve in the Democratic Republic of Congo with a major Christian ministry such as Food for the Hungry or work with a local church in Serbia. Internships are also university accredited and can be applied towards degrees at the University of Nations or tens of thousands of colleges and universities throughout the world. Internships are available to any student who has completed a DTS or secondary school. Internship options and locations are decided during the schools’ lecture phase.

Discover DTS lets you experience the awesomeness of our DTS program in one whirlwind week of faith building and fun. You’ll experience great teaching, worship, prayer, ministry, discipleship and adventure…a brief but exciting taste of the bigger DTS experience.
The cost is $525 per participant including everything except airfare. And… if you decide to do a DTS with YWAM DP, we’ll apply $500 of your Discover DTS fee towards your DTS tuition. Discover DTS programs are normally conducted over one week and can be arranged for groups or individuals. If the Discover DTS is conducted as part of a youth group, youth pastors and leaders come free!
