  • Hearing God’s Voice
  • Developing Healthy Relationships
  • The Father Heart of God
  • Holy Spirit
  • Exploring a Biblical Worldview

In addition to the daily Lectures, you will get to take part in powerful times of worship, passionate prayer and intercession, and one-on-one discipleship, all combined together in our Live/Learn community. Plus, during DTS Lectures, you will have opportunities to visit iconic locations around New Zealand: Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Hobbiton, Rotorua Geothermal Region, Tongariro Alpine Crossing, and so much more!

DTS Lecture Topics

Curious to know what sort of things you’ll be learning on your DTS? Each week on the DTS, we’ll provide you with a new topic filled with transformational, biblical content that will change your life. Check out what some of our former students learned as they encountered God through our weekly DTS Lecture Topics.


Pack your bags, it’s time for Outreach! During your 8-Week Outreach Phase, you will take the valuable things you’ve learned from Lectures and Stream times and share them with those in need.

You’ll do this through service, mercy ministry, sharing the Gospel, discipleship, or heart-to-heart ministry. You could travel to a nation in the South Pacific or Southeast Asia, announcing the Gospel of the Kingdom wherever you go. The world is waiting for you!

Outreach In The Islands

Check out this video showcasing some highlights from one of our recent outreach teams. This team went to the Fiji Islands for their DTS Outreach.

Still got some questions about outreach?


We offer 10 different YWAM DTS Streams, with each one having its own passion-based theme that runs through the school. Your DTS Stream will meet weekly to dive into the heart of the Stream, go deeper in your walk with God, and learn new tools for an effective outreach and life after DTS.

For example: the Pilgrimage DTS has lectures in the classroom, but also takes lectures into the outdoors onto iconic New Zealand trails! This then flows into outreach and becomes a tool to reach people. The Medical Compassion DTS learns about both medical and compassion in lecture phase, then uses them to reach people on outreach phase.
