There are places where people have no access to a church, a missionary, or even a Bible in their language. From North Africa to Far East Asia (the "10/40 Window" people are suffering under the burden of false religions and destructive philosophies. They are desperate for Hope, Truth, and Love. They are longing for Jesus. Will you be among the precious few who will go? Come learn about "unreached people groups" and how to share the Good News with them.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE DTS?
To gather and challenge people to worship, listen to, and obey God. To release them (in the context of the DTS) to serve through evangelism, intercession, acts of compassion and other expressions of God's heart for the world, possibly even pioneering new ministries.
To inspire and cultivate growth in one's relationship with God resulting in Christ-like character, which is based on a solid Biblical foundation, the work of the Holy Spirit, and the personal application of Biblical truth, especially concerning God's character, the Cross and His empowering Grace.
To sharpen one's ability to relate to, learn from, and work with people, including those of different cultures, personalities, and perspectives.
To further equip each one to serve God's purposes either in or outside of YWAM Family Ministries, strengthening a commitment to reach the lost, care for the poor, and opportunities to influence all areas of society.
To impart the vision and foundational values of Youth With A Mission International as well as that of the host operating location and to provide information regarding a variety of opportunities for service.

TESTIMONIALS Here's what YWAM Myrtle Beach DTS Graduates have to say about Their DTS Experience:
"My DTS was an experience I will never forget. God challenged me and stretched me in many ways. I have grown stronger in the Lord and fallen more in love with Him. I recommend doing a DTS if you are tired on living an ordinary life - God wants to use you in ways you've never imagined!" ~ CJ

"The DTS was a life changing experience where I had the opportunity to learn so much about God and His Word from teachers (from) all over the world.
