YWAM DTS Lecture Topics
October 19, 2020 - January 1, 2030
Hearing God’s Voice
Hearing God’s Voice is typically one of the first weeks of the DTS. During this week, you’ll learn from the Bible that God speaks to His children, as well as some of the common ways He does so, which are often unique to the individual. You’ll also get to practice different ways of hearing His voice, which may be challenging, but very rewarding!
The Character and Nature of God
The Character and Nature of God is also typically taught near the beginning of the DTS. This is the week where you’ll learn more about God’s character and nature and the differences between them. You will get to know who He is and how He interacts with His children. This will provide a solid foundation for your walk with God as you discover what God is like, and how you can relate to Him in Truth.
The Father Heart of God
The Father Heart of God is a week where you’ll learn more about God’s role as your heavenly Father. On DTS, you will touch on all members of the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. However, this is a week where you’ll dive deeper into this aspect of His character and experience Him as your Father.
Freedom and Deliverance
Our God is a God of freedom. No matter how you are coming to DTS, this week will enable you to have a fresh starting block in your faith journey. It is a time where God reveals His mighty power, even over darkness, allowing individuals to step out into newfound freedom in the Lord.
In Relationships week, you’ll learn what the Bible says about healthy relationships, not just romantic ones. You’ll be taught how to love, honor and understand others better by learning one another’s love languages and applying them. Letting go of past hurts, granting forgiveness, and setting healthy boundaries are also topics typically covered in this week.
The Holy Spirit is not an ‘added extra’ to the Christian’s experience. The Holy Spirit is a week devoted to getting to know the Spirit on new levels, whatever your past experience has been. You’ll explore how present He is in the Word and in your life, and you’ll also dive into spiritual gifts – what they are and how they apply to you today.
The Lordship of Jesus
Lordship is touched on through other topics during several weeks, but during this week, you’ll really grasp onto what it means to follow Jesus not only as your Saviour but as your Lord. Here you’ll be given so many beautiful opportunities to gain intimacy by surrendering and letting Jesus be the Lord of your entire life.

“Since being here at Marine Reach, my hunger for God has continued to grow more and more. In the Kingdom Come stream, our heart is to see the world changed by the message of His love and the demonstration of His power. It’s such a privilege to be apart of a group of people so on fire for Jesus!”
“Doing SPHC was an amazing experience. Not only was I given the opportunity to continue to grow spiritually, but I learned things that can be used in a very practical and much needed way. SPHC gave me the opportunity to show the Father’s heart to people in a very unique way and love on the person in front of me while helping them in such a simple way.”
“In the Kingdom Come stream, we really focused on what the kingdom of God is and how to live that out on earth. The most impactful aspect of this was walking out a miraculous lifestyle and being in an intimate relationship with God, where you can expect miracles to happen.”
“Being a part of the Justice Movement Stream has really challenged the way I see and define justice. It has made me more passionate and aware of the help this broken world needs, and what I can do to bring a stop to the injustice. I can now confidently say that I am able to take on the world, seeking justice and mercy for people in need.”
“The Medical Compassion DTS gave me a glimpse into the medical side or missions. The compassion part was what caught me. I saw that when we see with Jesus’ eyes of genuine compassion, we must get our hands dirty.”
“Upon first coming to DTS, I had settled for a mundane and ordinary life. But over time, He has captured my heart and instilled in me a new passion for His purpose. This has given me confident hope that I am worthy of intentionally being part of the greater good.”
“SPHC was honestly one of the best experiences of my life so far. From the lecture phase to outreach, my mind was constantly blown by the endless stream of possibilities that become available when you combine practical medical care with the power of prayer. Also, getting to hike, ride in boats and in the back of trucks, and setting up clinics basically anywhere was quite the highlight for a city girl like me.”
“Medical Compassion DTS was a truly an incredible experience. Working in health centres, hospitals and pop-up clinics grew my interest in medicine and allowed me to practically show the love of God. For me, the most transformational aspect of my Med-Com DTS was the focus on compassion and its importance in achieving true holistic healing. This is an experience like no other!”
“This is the craziest stream ever, not just doing fun activities, but the people I was with; they are wild as! Throughout the school, I’ve learned so much from the Bible that doing life with God and living my life on the edge is so much more interesting.”
“Before coming to DTS I had a fixed view on what it meant to be a follower of God. Being on the Wild Heart Stream completely demolished every box I put God in and taught me to have reverence for the Lord. I learned that God doesn’t want a slave, he wants a best friend, a daughter and a relationship.”
